GCSE & IGCSE

WHAT IS THE GCSE
GCSE stands for General Certificate of Secondary Education. These are the courses that students follow during their last few years of compulsory schooling, usually between the ages of 14 and 16. Students often take around eight GCSEs (sometimes more and sometimes fewer depending on their ability and the policy of the school). Core subjects, like Maths, English and Science, must be studied alongside with languages such as French Spanish, German and Italian . After completing their GCSE exams, students who wish to go to university generally study for their A-Levels. As a rule of thumb, A-Level colleges and universities require at least 5 GCSEs.

IGCSE stands for International General Certificate of Secondary Education.Our tutors are glad to help with most of popular IGCSE subjects.

OUR TUTORS’ TEACHING STRATEGY
The volume of subjects examined at GCSE can prove overwhelming without the right guidance. We can introduce you to tutors who will:
• have detailed knowledge about the syllabus and requirements of the exam board that your child is studying;
• provide in-depth help with exam technique – a critical skill at this stage;
• teach your child time-management skills and how to prioritise subjects effectively;
• offer one to one attention in a supportive and enjoyable environment, which means all your child’s questions will be answered in more depth than can be possible in the classroom;
• create an empathetic and enjoyable environment which means your child will be motivated to learn.
