  3. 20 minutes of one-to-one tutorial – dedicated to addressing individual student's weaknesses

 Milestone Task

At the end of the teaching session, questions are set in what we call a “milestone task” piece of work.

The student is expected to do the milestone task by answering the questions and submitting them, either by e-mail or into our online portal. We expect the work to be printed out and in handwriting, as this reflects the way the actual GCSE exam will be done. Practising in the form of writing on paper is vital, as part of the exam technique training.

The work is expected to be done and submitted within 48 hours. The teacher will check all the work.

The second session – the tutorial. This is teaching for about 10 minutes for GCSE and KS3 and about 15 to 20n minutes for A-level. The tutorial session is when the teaching consultant goes through key elements (usually about 15 to 20 marks’ worth ) of the questions that were set. The teacher will explain the answers and also ensure that some of the work is marked – with written or verbal comment provided.

The student will have access to the video of the teaching session for up to one year after the course has ended.  This will be on our online platform.

Diagnostic and Alignment (D&A) is compulsory irrespective of when a student starts. This session takes place before the start of the actual lessons. The diagnostic session requires a student to sit for a test based on the subject(s) in which the student is enrolled. The test enables us to know the strengths and weaknesses of the student. The diagnostic is followed by an interview with the subject teacher(s). The teacher asks quite a number of questions to the student based on his/her performance in the diagnostic test and on his/her past exam results and school reports. This is also an opportunity for the student to express himself/herself. Post-interview, we create a specific profile of the student and the process of alignment starts. By alignment we mean the process of placing the student in the group that represents attributes similar to him/her.

In simple words, the student will be placed in a group of other students with the same academic level. After the D&A, the most appropriate learning package reflecting the unique requirements of the student is designed and the student is taught according to that plan.

Due to the uncertainty over COVID-19, all Saturday classes are planned to be online, and these fees are set accordingly. However, we hope to hold the diagnostic tests and also to have one-day tutorial courses at a centre – once every term or so. This is provided it is safe to do so; if not, those will be online as well. In the event that Social distancing is completely removed, we will review the situation and consider rescheduling for courses to be in-centre, face to face courses or we will set separate courses in centres. Parents who prefer for their children not to come to the centre will be offered an equivalent service online, and we will try to the best of our ability to make the experience and value as close as possible to in-person learning. These fees are purely for online courses.

The most popular combination at GCSE and KS3 are English, Maths and Combined Science (for those who are taking Combined or Single Science). This is treated as 4 Subjects at EIKS. It usually results in five GCSE exam grades: two for English, two for Science and one for Maths. Only Triple Science students who are also taking both Maths and English will pay for five subjects. They will spend 6 hrs 15 minutes studying each Saturday and obtain six GCSE exam grades at the end. For all students, a full academic year consists of a period of Diagnostic and Alignment (the first two Saturdays). This is followed by three terms, each term consisting of 8 Saturdays.

The usual payment method is to pay the D&A and first term’s fee as initial payment. Thereafter, payment for the second term and then the third term three weeks before term starts. A monthly payment option is also available.

  1. Online bank transfer using the details below
