Astonishing GCSE Results 2018!
Congratulations to all our students who achieved a brilliant set of GCSE results this summer. We are all extremely proud of your accomplishments. This year our girls achieved the highest num-ber of top grades (7+/A/A*) ever. We wish year 11 leavers the best of luck in their future endeav-ours. Here are some words of advice from some of our top grade girls for the next generation of GCSE students!
Iman Hassoun Achieved 6 grade 9s this year!
"My advice is to make sure that you understand all the content as you go along and to not be afraid to ask questions. This will ensure that revision is easy and quick as you are not relearning or learning con-tent. Also, do lots of exam practice (including treating your mocks like the real exam) so that you familiarise yourself with the mark scheme. My last advice is to enjoy what you’re learning and have fun, if you try your best you'll achieve your best. Good luck."
Fatima Osman Achieved 6 grade 9s this year!
"My advice is to use all of the resources provided and make sure to always ask for extra things. However, you should only go to clubs if you actually feel you will benefit from them (not just because your friends are going); if you have gone over the content already, maybe use that time to do some independent study instead to revise over things you actually need, so when exam season comes along, you don’t feel like you’ve wasted any time throughout the year and you’ve done your best."
Caitlin Russell Achieved 14 GCSEs- all grade 7/A and above- in her time at EGA!
My advice is to take it slow, don’t do loads of revision even leading up to exams, just spread it evenly across spring/summer terms. Don’t let yourself feel guilty about not working, either do it or just forget about it for a second and relax.
