Progress your career today with an online CIPD qualification


Discover how Samsheer used the coronavirus lockdown to pursue her dream of becoming a doctor by studying an online GCSE English Literature qualification.

Firstly, I do not have a job, but I want to be a doctor in the future.

Last year, when I was in Year 11, I did my GCSE exams and got my results. When I saw them, I thought I could’ve done better. When I began my first year, Year 12, in St Thomas More Catholic School Sixth Form, I found out that we were being given an extra opportunity to resit our maths and English exams and try to get our target grades.

However, when found out that the school will be going into lockdown because of the coronavirus, I decided to take advantage of the lockdown and thought of doing tuition. When I thought of doing tuition, I looked for tuition companies and decided to enrol with ICS learn.

After enrolling with ICS learn, I thought about things I should do to achieve my target grades for maths and English resits. Here are the things I thought I must do to achieve my target grades:

Complete all homework tasks and hand them in via school email system.

Do some extra revision.

Have a go at past papers.

Do tuition from home with ICS Learn.

Complete my exams.

I decided to enrol now because I think it will help me achieve the grades I need.

However, studying during lockdown has been absolutely fine, as I have been able to concentrate on my homework. My plans for the future are: to complete training in a school or college; to study at a university hospital, to become a doctor, and to help the elderly. 

I think my qualification will help me by getting me a job that is suitable for me.

I would recommend ICS Learn to others during lockdown because it helps you get the grades you need to succeed in the future.
