Presentation on Exams, Qualification Reform and the Curriculum from the KS4 information evening 2015

Published in: Education
  • Before I came across this program, my confidence was a little low. Having achieved a 'C' grade in a GCSE mock exam just prior to it, I wasn't sure how I was going to better this. However, thanks to Jeevan's program, I was able to see how I could maximise my grade in a maths exam. At the end of the day, this is the most important thing � the result on the paper! After a month of following Jeevan's program, I achieved a strong 'B' grade (a couple of marks off an A) in my next GCSE mock exam. I achieved the highest grade in my entire year group and I am now being considered to take my GCSE maths exam in November this year, where I would have just begun year 11. My teacher was surprised; how did I make such a big improvement in maths in such a short space of time?!●●● http://t.cn/AirraVnG
