As we all know Tiffin (boys/girls) is highly performing as per the league tables.
Looking at 2010 Tiffin boy results (http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standard/ ... -school.do
A levels: 67% of the exams awarded A*/A grades
GCSE: 85% of the exams awarded A*/A grades
I don't believe that a child passing 11+ does not mean he/she is intelligent/bright/clever/hardwork. children are being stretched for 11+ so they are doing goood in test , who ever does best relatively they get into school. But I am sure some children are really intelligent/bright/clever, not sure how do we measure though
But what is the mystery behind getting A*/A grades?
are the children being stretched throught the school life so they perform well in exams.
are they being trained/guided very well
are they getting lot of home work repeatedly till they achieve good understanding on subjects
are the children very very busy all the days doing homeworks
Do these children understand the concepts of maths/science etc subjects , or they are just trained to get only grades then children forgetting everything after exams.
or is it easy to get A*/A grades in exams ?
