“She was overwhelmed with an A in Maths. It’s amazing, we are so proud of course and also so grateful for your contribution to this achievement. She has been offered a place at Edinburgh –her first choice – so we couldn’t be more delighted. Thank you.”
To receive an email like this, after A level results day, is very special for any tutor. This student was studying MEI Maths A Level and required support to progress beyond a grade C.
The Community Schools tutors are willing all of our students to succeed and to get the good results that they all deserve and have worked so hard for. So it was with some relief, but not surprise, that we learned of our students’ great exam achievements this summer.
“He managed to get a C in Chemistry which we are chuffed with after failing the first year. We feel this is fantastic.”
This appreciative message above was sent by a proud mum who approached us in August 2015, after her son had failed his first year AS Chemistry. He had just been informed by his college that he was not allowed to continue on the course. Luckily, they managed to convince the college to let him move onto his A2 course, on the understanding that he had support in place from The Community Schools. He achieved a fantastic grade C that has enabled him to take a place at Kent University to study Chemistry.
“I am extremely happy with my result! Thank you so much for preparing me.”
