I am based in
I started to see student A at the end of year 10 as his parents wanted to ensure he passed his maths. At that stage he was simply hoping to get a C grade.
By the time he took his mock exams in year 11 he was working at an A grade, and in the GCSE exam itself he was 1 mark short of an A* grade.
He decided to do A level maths at college, and although he found it alot harder he would have gained a pass. He decided he was not entirely confident of getting a high grade, and in the end decided to do the AS level exam which he passed.

I worked with student B from year 9 when he was preparing for his KS3 SATS. He was in the bottom set for maths and had no confidence. He was expected to get a grade F at GCSE.
I discovered that he was making a few key errors which we were able to correct, and over the next 2 years I worked with him for the GCSE exam.
He achieved a grade C in the exam much to his (and his parents) delight!
