Ranging from historical importance, style and significance. Be prepared for your interview.


Science for group interviews

We have designed a bespoke science course for the interest of  preparing
students for their scholarship tests.

The first two lessons ; will be example lessons of how to approach this scenario as well as raising awareness of what examiners are going to be looking for and how the student can best showcase themselves

The second parts; the teacher will guide the students and the group through solving the problem and provide verbal feedback on their performance

The  final sessions ; students will have no guidance from the teacher. They will be set the task which they then complete. The teacher will assess and provide a detailed report on each students performance.
