Results

What is a Results programme?

Results programmes focus expressly on improving the results obtained from exams & tests students may have to face during their educational years. There are several reasons why students may come away from an exam with results below their expectations, even though they may feel they know the materials studied during their courses. Our Results teachers are experienced coaches who are used to bring up the performance standards of their students in preparation for key exams. So a Results programme gets results!

Why the name?


For nearly 30 years the main link from East to West Germany was the crossing booth called Checkpoint Charlie. It seems a fitting link that IGCSE has beome one of the main crossing points for students moving from East to West in their studies, and the Checkpoint series of exams is the first step of that cross-over!
