  • I seemed to underperform in my mock exams - achieving D's/E's but after following your strategy and advice, I achieved a 'B' grade in my final GCSE maths exam. I was chuffed because this result enabled me to study A-Level Chemistry. I've used your revision principles again and this has helped me immensely in this subject. Thank you so much Jeevan.. my 'B' grade will definitely help me in applying for a Pharmacy' course at University... http://t.cn/AirrSv7D

  • I didn't think failing my maths back in high school would come back to haunt me but it did! After graduating from Edge Hill University, I was looking to undertake a PGCE in primary teaching. However, one of the requirements was a pass in GCSE maths so I had no choice but to re-take it. After failing it twice, my confidence was very low and I didn't think I could qualify for the PGCE. After running a Google search on passing GCSE maths, I came across Jeevan's revision system. The feedback it received looked very good so I decided to give it a try... And it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. After going through Jeevan's guide, I managed to grasp the entire subject and I passed my next GCSE maths exam, with ease. He (Jeevan) provided me with all the tools I needed to prepare for the exam. Together with his guidance, my pass was a foregone conclusion. Thank you so much Jeevan! You have potentially changed my life. I recommend anyone seeking a pass grade in GCSE maths to purchase this fantastic package!➤➤ http://ishbv.com/jeevan91/pdf
