  • 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! ◆◆◆ https://bit.ly/33W8jmf

  • 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!★★★ https://bit.ly/33W8jmf

  • I have found your program really helpful. It is so easy to understand. It makes far more sense than school teachers ever did. I desperately need a 'C' grade and with your package, I am bang on this pass rate. With a bit more revision, it will be a comfortable pass. Thanks Jeevan! ◆◆◆ http://t.cn/AirrSv7D

This time, rather than speaking for as long as you can, you need to try and include the words below and ‘spend’ the words as you answer your 5 questions. Your partner will cross them off as you use them and you need to do the same for your partner. The first to use up all the words is the winner.
  53. 53. Opinion Present Future Reason Time expression Comparison Complexity Past Reference to others Talk about your family
  54. 54. Interviews Students can conduct interviews on selected topics with various people. It is a good idea that the teacher provides a rubric to students so that they know what type of questions they can ask or what path to follow, but students should prepare their own interview questions. After interviews, each student can present their findings.
  55. 55. The key elements needed to get higher grades need to be emphasised
  56. 56. IMPORTANT!!!!!! •Results •Opinions •Tenses •Extended language GCSEHow can we make them talk?
  57. 57. Keeping their attention! Think about the length of lessons. If you have slots that are longer than 25 minutes, you’ll need to think about the number of activities to cover. Pupils learn in different ways. Some respond well to the written word, others to pictures, others to sound, others to very active tasks. Try and include different types of activities in your work to appeal to different learner types. Vary your approach from week to week. GCSEHow can we make them talk?

  62. 62. Picture Describing Another way to make use of pictures is to give students just one picture and have them describe what it is in the picture. For this activity students can form groups and each group is given a different picture. Students discuss the picture with their groups, then a spokesperson for each group describes the picture to the whole class.
  63. 63. Spot the Difference For this activity students can work in pairs and each couple is given two different pictures, for example, picture of boys playing football and another picture of girls playing tennis. Students in pairs discuss the similarities and/or differences in the pictures.
