GCSE Maths Tuition in Manchester
AQA | Edexcel | OCR | SQA | WJEC
GCSE maths is a subject which can be, for some, the stuff of nightmares. Unfortunately, there is (with most exam boards) a monstrous list of skills that a student has to know in order to be fully prepared for their exam. Mastery in all of these is not only an amazing achievement, but also provides students with a huge boost of pride and achievement in all of their subjects across the board.
In school, there are many factors which can affect the progress of individual children. Boredom, disagreement with the teacher and peer distraction are amongst some of the reasons why GCSE students can sometimes become lack-lustre in their studies in this subject.
Private sessions can completely turn this on its head. There is no pressure from other students, the sessions are almost always relaxed and the staff are paid to be approachable and to have the ability to advise on a one to one basis. With tuition, we do not have the constraints that exist in a classroom. If something has been studied and mastered, a student is more able to voice their success, and another skill is ticked off the list. Overall, students of GCSE mathematics can become more independent, not only in their work but also in terms of their conviction and determination.
It’s a well-known fact that employers demand a pass grade at GCSE in maths. In old money, this was a ‘C’ grade, but it’s all change, and as of August 2017, students will be receiving their GCSE results in numerical fashion. Employers and further education establishments will want a grade 4 pass, which will potentially change to grade 5 the following year. This is daunting. Many parents are struggling with the conversion, but at Combibo, we can help smooth this over with detailed and valuable advice.
