Toran Kumar Behera – ICE Certificate-Merit Category 2019 June Exam Series
“ I knew that I started studying very late, so instead of doing past papers of previous years, I did the specimen papers of this year, and I got lucky enough to find the same structure of questions in the actual papers. Specimen papers were very helpful, especially in the coordinated Science papers. Also, I found out that the first Science paper I was going to take was only going to be about experiments shown in the book, so instead of trying to study all of the chapters from all three books (Physics, Biology, and Chemistry), I only studied the experiments, which should not take more than 30 minutes. At the end, when I saw my results, I knew, I got what I deserved.”
Patrick Sam Lazarov-A*(GP.ENGLISH,Math)
“I summarized information in the books and presentations onto pieces of paper so I wouldn’t have to flip through as many pages. This was also a good preparation method for me, because personally, writing information over and over helps with memorization. I did my best, and I honestly felt like my revision method worked. Before receiving the results, I was expecting to pass all of the exams, but I did not want to give myself high expectations. I was surprised and very happy with the scores I got especially with History. I still wonder about where exactly I made my mistakes, and how I could have done better but at least all of that is in the past now. The AS and A level examinations will be a much bigger.”
