The introduction of the new numerical GCSE grading system has diffused panic amongst current students. With the elimination of coursework and no texts allowed in the exam halls, roughly 53.5% of students achieved grades ranging from Level 4 - 6 in the 2018 English Literature GCSE exams. So, who can blame students for being constantly stressed?
Not to worry, BYT can help!
To support and help students overcome this tension, we are introducing a new English Literature GCSE Stress-Buster workshop series, starting on Thursday the 23rd of October, from 10h00 - 12h00 at our HQ in London Victoria.
Led by one of our best and most experienced English Literature tutors, we will be delivering a series of encouraging and engaging lessons designed to take away the stresses of the enormous English Literature GCSE curriculum early on in the academic year.
The lessons will be conducted in a classroom, a more social setting compared to private one-to-one tuition, thus motivating students further and allowing for them to share ideas beyond those delivered in school.
The first session will focus on Romeo and Juliet, a text that is common across many boards and can be hard to get to grips with if done in a mad rush during exam season.
In the following weeks, our series will be tackling various challenging texts:
📚 Tuesday 23 October, 10h00-12h00: Romeo and Juliet
📚 Tuesday 30 October, 18h00-20h00: Jane Eyre
📚 Wednesday 7 November, 18h00-20h00: Macbeth
📚 Wednesday 14 November, 18h00-20h00: Pride and Prejudice
📚 Wednesday 21 November, 18h00-20h00: The Merchant of Venice
📚 Wednesday 28 November, 18h00-20h00: Great Expectations
📚 Wednesday 5 December, 18h00-20h00: Much Ado About Nothing
