We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all the GTS students who succeeded in their public examinations in summer. It was a hard year to cope with for all of them and panic about the exams fiasco will live with them.
Whilst we like to take some of the credit (and blame) for the results the examination outcome this year was completely based on their school's teacher assessment, but that of course was based on the revision, preparation and dedication that the students put in throughout the year.
The big new factor in the examinations this year was of course the lack of actual exams. Many of our A level students had the horror of losing then getting then losing then getting their offered places for university. It worked out in the end but it was an anxious few weeks.
Even without the exams all felt that the tutorial sessions still helped; It helped raise their class performance but more importantly the skills and habits we develop together will have long lasting impacts on future exams and careers.
Next year's students will have the benefit of at least seeing one whole new exam format paper to prepare with and we are sure that this typical "new exam" blip will reverse itself next year. See our front page article on Covid changes in how we work and our pricing.
