Exam Season Begins

For many of our students, the exam season is starting! Remember to spend time outside and enjoy the warming weather – and at the same time, use these important final days before the exams to talk to your tutor about any topics you feel you would like to revisit, so you are ready to enter the exam hall with increased confidence, solidified knowledge and an invigorated mind. We wish you the best of luck!
