  • 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...◆◆◆ https://bit.ly/33W8jmf

  • 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://ishbv.com/jeevan91/pdf

  50. 50. EIELIFI-IIIIIE Turk - de Groot Ex-agent of the secret service and colonel to Her most gracious Majesty, Sir Harold Wilberforce Clifton has become an amateur detective. Scotland Yard consider this excellent old hand as insightful as the illustrious Sherlock Holmes! Without ever losing an ounce of his “British” touch, he resolves complex enigmas for the police and thwarts the plans of unscrupulous crooks. At the wheel of his famous MG convertible, his cases are punctuated with the indispensable “tea-time”, cheeky remarks, his devoted governor Mrs. Partridge and the attention demanded by his cats. Rich in twists and turns, the adventures of Clifton are presented by some of the biggest names in humorous comics. www. cinebook. co. uk 460069
