Good to Go

Exam Preparation Courses

GtoG logoOur aim is to help students to enter into their exams feeling that they are “Good to Go”. They will leave our courses feeling prepared not only in subject knowledge but also confident to cope with the stress and workload that preparing for exams comes with.

Classes are small (1–7) and they are led by experienced teachers to help with individual needs with plenty of

1-1 attention. Exams are not all about subject knowledge though and we will be doing our best to help with some of the wider concerns pupils and parents have in the run up to this difficult time.

Before they start each course, pupils will be asked to list their “Good to Go” targets, so that they can outline where they feel that they would like to be more confident. This is likely to be an aspect of subject knowledge but it could also include for example time or stress management.

“Before you Go” and “After you Go”

We will contact you 3 weeks before the course starts to ask what your “Good to Go” targets are for the week; what your current predicted grade is and any medical or dietary information required. We will also contact you after the exam results to find out how you got on!

3 weeks before the course starts you will be asked to list your “Good to Go” targets, where you can list your areas that you would like to focus.”

Where there are several days available for a course, teachers have provided a loose guideline of possible areas that they could cover on each day to help you to decide which days to pick, however this really is only a guideline, as their starting point will be the ‘Good to Go” targets that you set yourself”
