A2 exam 2014 growth and evolution


Published on

  • 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!
