Business and in my other subjects.”

“It was really helpful. I feel much more confident with answering exam questions
now.”

“I’ve always lost marks due to my exam technique, not my knowledge and
understanding. This session showed me how to properly structure my answers. I feel
much more confident now.” Sunmarke School Dubai

“I have learnt how to answer questions, more specifically, without needing to write
excessively so I can complete the exam in the time frame.”

to write a great evaluation.”
