Name: Cynthia Obeng
Course: GCSE Maths
I decided to change my career and go into Dietetics and Nutrition. I didn't have all the qualifications that I needed so was offered a place on the extended science foundation year.
I discovered quite late that it is compulsory for myself to have a GCSE grade C or above in Maths to move onto the next part of my course, which felt a bit like a nightmare as it was too late to enrol in a college course.
Then I remembered that I had used ICS Learn before to do a course and I made contact straight away. When I rang the lady on the phone was lovely and really made me feel at ease. Within no time I was enrolled onto the course and with a black Friday discount which was a nice bonus.
Maths has never been my strong point, and I have since discovered that I am Dyslexic which makes a lot of sense now thinking about my past struggles. I am a visual learner so I love the fact that with ICS Learn you have actual teaching videos to watch as if you are in a classroom, and the work is done on a computer screen as well as a workbook.
So far I have really enjoyed the course, and I can fit it in well with work and university. The worksheets are really good and the explanations in the videos etc. are understandable so it doesn't feel daunting. I am even challenging myself to do the higher tier paper and feel confident that I will do well.
The best thing I’ve ever done was enrolling onto the GCSE Maths course and I love it.
Thank you ICS Learn.
