Let’s face it, exams are a pain. That pain is even more severe when the student goes into the exam room unprepared, lacking confidence, afraid of what’s to come.
Of course, passing exams is about being prepared, about having learned the subject to the best of your ability, about having practised answering exam-type questions. At JJs, that’s what we do. We make sure that all of our exam candidates are prepared academically to the best of their ability. And we do that to the best of OUR ability.
I’m not telling you it is going to be easy — I’m telling you it’s going to be worth it.
– Art Williams (Basketball star)
But exams are about more than just academic preparation. They are about more than just testing. They are a great opportunity. Exams are the only opportunity you have to show the world what you can do. An exam is a great chance to show that you have worked hard, that you have prepared, that you are ready.
“Never give in. Never. Never. Never. Never.”
– Winston Churchill
At JJs, we know that not everyone is academically gifted. We accept that. What we don’t accept – what we will never accept – is that that should prevent every student going into the exam room ready, willing, able, enthusiastic, to show what he or she can do.
“Exams are not there to find out what you don’t know, they are there for you to show off what you do know.”
– Jim Thomson (J in JJs)
