What does the data from the last 3 academic years tell us?

Published in: Data & Analytics
  • I've been struggling with maths for the past 2 years now. In the first mock paper I took, I got a 'U' grade. At this point, I felt hopeless. How was I ever going to pass my maths?! I did a Google search and came across Jeevan's stuff on Youtube. I was in a desperate situation so I had no choice but to purchase your material... Jeevan's resources are amazing. They have really helped me out. I am much more confident with my maths and I am able to answer past papers within the time limit. I recently had a mock exam at school and I achieved a 'D' grade! A massive improvement since my last score. If I continue to make this progress, there is no doubt that I will achieve my pass grade in my final exam. Thanks for your amazing resources Jeevan. They are so much better than the other revision guides I wasted money on! ▲▲▲ http://t.cn/AirraVnG
