  • 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/AirrSv7D

  • I've found your course really helpful and it's saved a lot of time so I can focus on my other subjects too such as English and Science. Your course has taught me a number of techniques to solve questions quicker. For instance, how to quickly turn recurring decimals into fractions. This has saved a lot of time when completing my mock exams. Thanks Jeevan. Your course is great! ■■■ http://t.cn/AirraVnG

  • 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://t.cn/AirraVnG

  • My daughter struggled with Maths due to an absence of teachers during year 10. I purchased Jeevan's 'home-tutor' program and she has not looked back. Not only does it explain the basic steps but also how to achieve those top grades. This is not only far better than a private tutor but amazing value for money. I would only have got a few hours of a tutors time for the same money. I am very grateful as this has turned my daughters attitude to Maths around- she now loves it and finds it easy! My other daughter, who is currently 14-years-old, has already begun your program. After going through your book and DVD's, she has moved up to the top set in maths. I have no doubt when she takes her GCSE maths in 2 years, she will achieve an A/A* grade! Many many thanks for your help Jeevan! ■■■ http://t.cn/AirraVnG

  • Before coming across your guide, I wasn't highly motivated to study nor confident that I would achieve the best grades in my GCSEs. However, after reading about your success and what your program has done for others, it inspired me to do better and aim for the best results. At the end of the day, there is no reason why anyone cannot achieve the best grades in their studies... Your maths revision guide/strategy is fantastic! You have really opened my eyes as to where I've been going wrong all this time and what I should focus on, going forward. I've also applied your methods to other subjects too such as Science and seen a vast improvement in terms of revision and progress. I cannot thank you enough for sharing your strategy! I am very confident that, providing I follow your plan, I will excel in my final GCSE exams next year and most importantly, make my family proud! :)●●● http://t.cn/AirraVnG

  4. 4. GCSE English/English Literature<br />What should your son/daughter be doing at the moment to get ready for their exams?<br />They should be revising already…this will need to be planned – they are taking multiple subjects many of which have more than one exam.<br />You can help them by discussing their revision plan – help them set one up on a calendar – on paper, online or on their mobile phone.<br />For English/English Literature there is a lot of content – at this stage they should be revising the materials in the AQA Anthology as much as possible.<br />Reading will not suffice though – encourage them to make posters, mind-maps, charts, flash cards etc – revision needs to be active!<br />
  5. 5.

  7. 7. GCSE English/English Literature<br />3 ways to revise short stories:<br />Write a 200 word summary of each of the short stories that you have studied. Then reduce the summary to 100 words. Then reduce it to key words.<br />Make a chart with the key themes along the top / stories down the side – fill in the chart with notes about how each story fits in with each theme.<br />Each story uses “Extended Metaphors” – create a poster or mind-map that shows what each metaphor is and how they develop within each story. Include quotes to add detail. <br />
  8. 8. GCSE English/English Literature<br />3 ways to revise poetry:<br />Using the following themes: Death, Loss, Love, Relationships, Growing Up, Isolation – list all the poems that can fit under each one.<br />Create comparison grids for sets of 4 poems – in each box write down how the poem compares with one of the others and write down 2 key quotes you could use to support your points.<br />For each poem write down a key quote and then explain what we learn from the quote. (This is a good “flash-card” exercise)<br />
  9. 9. GCSE English/English Literature<br />3 ways to revise non-fiction & media texts:<br />Read as many media texts as possible including the backs of Cereal Boxes, biographies, news articles, magazines, posters, web pages.<br />Read over your completed skills homework – where you didn’t get full marks – do the task again and re-submit it.<br />Create a list of persuasive devices – write down what they do and find examples of them. (another good flash-card exercise)<br />
  10. 10. GCSE English/English Literature<br />3 ways to revise poetry from different cultures:<br />For each poem you have studied write down what you learn about the specific culture the poet is writing about.<br />This is “language” so you must have an understanding of the techniques used – explore these by creating mind-maps or posters.<br />Layout and structure are also important. <br />For layout draw the shape of each poem – annotate this explaining what it represents' <br />For structure – write down what the purpose of each stanza is? What unusual patterns can you see?<br />
  11. 11. GCSE English/English Literature<br />3 ways to revise writing:<br />Practice using devices and the senses in your descriptive writing by describing your own house at breakfast or dinner time.<br />Use Sam Learning to practice your spelling, punctuation and grammar.<br />Write a leaflet to your fellow students advising them about the benefits of revising – offer them practical ideas about how to do it.<br />
