ICS Real Stories: Laurent | Online IGCSE English Review


Laurent achieved a grade 9 in IGCSE English Language with us. This result allowed him to secure an offer to join his desired teacher training program.


I want to thank Ross, Alice and the ICS team for their support and a great online platform to study the IGCSE English Language.

In order to be accepted for Science teacher training, I was asked to pass the IGCSE English Language as I got my BSc in France.

I then searched online and after checking out 3 or 4 different course providers, I chose the ICS learn after reading the existing reviews and on the recommendations from the Gorse SCITT, my teacher’s training centre.

Just got my results yesterday and got a grade 9, top grade! All thanks to the ICS Learn training, one of the best learning online platform I have encountered.

This has allowed me to get a firm offer to join my teacher’s training program. If all goes to plan, I’m looking to be a qualified teacher in June next year.

I must admit that, before joining the ICS Learn course, I had some initial reservation regarding the joining fees. However, as I was offered to have it split in monthly instalments without interest, it made it very manageable financially.

Also, upon completion of the course and after getting my results, I must admit that it worth every single penny.

If I compare it to other online platforms I have used to study for my BSc and Master’s degrees in physics with 2 different universities, I found the ICS Learn online platform much more user friendly and supportive.

I really enjoyed the course, it is well structured, the content is interesting and engaging, it's easy to submit course work (marking is super-fast, thanks Alice) and the live sessions with Ross are very useful.

The tutor support is second to none, the comments given on marked course work is constructive and really helped me to focus my efforts in the required areas (thanks Alice, again).

I also really enjoyed the live sessions with Ross as I felt involved when participating in the live chats and when reviewing other student’s exam answers.  

I highly recommend this course mainly for the support that you wouldn’t necessarily find with other course providers.
