A Level Student Stories: Maimoona Qureshi | A Level Maths Review

Maimoona was looking to study a PGCE at university but needed to get her A Level Mathematics first. She chose to study 100% online with ICS Learn. Here's how she got on.

Currently, I am working as a student services advisor at my local college.

I chose my course because it is a requirement for the PGCE Maths entry at the University. I chose to do my course with ICS Learn as a friend recommended you and when I spoke to your advisor for advice I was greatly satisfied.

When I contacted the examination body, the advisor completely understood my situation and answered the queries I had, since the course fee and study plan were suitable to my family and work routine, I registered for the course straight away.

Initially, I did have some reservations as I was quite sceptical about online tutoring and tests. Even though I had attended online meetings via Zoom and Teams, I wondered how tests and exams would be conducted. Moreover, in previous studies I was used to doing group study work and sharing knowledge for better understanding. I wondered how I would be able to share my work with my peers.

But as soon as I logged onto my learning platform, all my reservations diminished because my tutor not only explained the lesson in detail but answered my queries. I was also able share my thoughts and work with colleagues and ask/assist where required. My confidence improved in each lesson I attended.

The course was broken down in parts that I could easily access on my laptop as many times as I wished. The video attachments, tests and feedback were always beneficial and my tutor always sent links of resources for extra practice.

During the lockdown period, because I was working from home, my working times greatly differed from the normal period and extended to late evening and so I practiced my learning quite late in the night. I remember whenever I sent a question to my personal tutor, she kindly gave a swift response and where she would be delayed she kindly informed me.

 She would always encourage me to do well in my efforts as sometimes even when I sometimes sent a late submission as occasionally my home, work and studies for a separate course at times prevented me to stick to the set timetable that we had agreed upon.

I intend to do a PGCE in Maths. Now that I have achieved the grade required, I will be applying to providers to continue a route into teacher training.

I would definitely be recommending ICS Learn as I have received an abundance or resources and beneficial feedback by my tutors. The support extended to me made it easier for me to achieve my target and so be step closer to achieving my ultimate goal.
