Both parents and pupils taking GCSEs will have heard news of the education reforms that are underway. This applies to both GCSEs and A Levels and changes include several new features.
The Government intends to rollout new GCSEs over the next two years, with changes already taking place at the start of the academic year in 2015. In their publication on the reforms, the Department for Education (DfE) has said that new GCSEs will have new and more demanding content developed by government and exam boards, and that assessment will be largely exam based.
Many parents choose online tuition for their children in the run-up to exams to benefit from the support and skills a specialist GCSE tutors can offer. With these reforms underway, students will also have to be better equipped in exam preparation and in performing to their full potential under pressure.
Tutors Valley specialist tutors will ensure that pupils have not only the knowledge and understanding needed in relevant subjects, but that they also have a robust revision plan and appropriate exam materials to help them succeed. As an added bonus, all of our lessons are recorded and available to revisit as needed. This acts as a handy revision tool, while alleviating the pressure for students to record detailed notes during the lesson itself.
It is worth noting that most UK universities require applicants to have GCSEs in core subjects; English, mathematics and science. This makes accomplishing strong GCSE grades even more crucial.
