IGCSE Maths and Biology
5 5
by A - June 2014

Absolutely brilliant! I'm a fifteen-year-old taking my IGCSEs at home, and I did Biology and Maths Higher through NEC. Finished both in five months with (hopefully!) two A*s. I couldn't recommend them enough! You get sent a binder with about 12 assignments that you send in after each topic, and then your tutor gets back to you about it within a few days. I called my tutor about once a week as well for extra help. A few weeks before the exams, I started to do past papers (from Edexcel's website) and read revision guides etc, which really helped get me the A*. I'm doing another set of courses with them next year and I'm already looking forward to it!
