Year 10 key messages from the subject leaders 2018

Published in: Education
  • I was always one of those students who were top of the class for maths during my KS3 years. However, we didn't have maths lessons for around 6 months in year 10, so I fell behind rapidly, and I was getting below average for my GCSE mocks. This package has really boosted my knowledge in a matter of only two weeks! I am vastly improving in maths and I am confident, given that I follow Jeevan's principles, I will achieve an A* in GCSE maths... In the end I achieved an 'A' grade in GCSE maths (summer 2014). I was a little disappointed in myself. However, considering the circumstances, I think I did pretty well. I am now taking A-Level maths at a grammar school and wanted to thank you for helping me along the way. You have inspired me to do well in this subject and I'm sure my 'A' grade will definitely help me to study Veterinary Medicine at a top University. Once again, thank you so much! ★★★ http://tinyurl.com/passgasce4u
