Cambridge International is hugely popular in South Asian countries, namely India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. As the November wing of the A Level and IGCSE examinations draw near, students in South Asia are starting to transition into the revision stage. While attending online classes, it’s important to focus on utilising all the benefits this mode of learning provides to achieve the best grades.
In this blog, we’ll talk about three things that you should be aware of to improve your online learning experience as a student in South Asia.
1. A Well-Balanced Curriculum
Most students don’t think about the quality of their curriculum when assessing their academic performance. Most are very comfortable with the way their teachers and institutions are designed. However, curricular differences can affect student performance.
Many online schools use the national curriculum, which is considered too prescriptive and subject too much to political turbulence. If you’re taught this curriculum, your teachers might not provide you with the necessary topics to develop a strong foundation.
Because of this, the concepts that you’re building will not be able to develop properly. We encourage students to take a deeper look at their institution’s curriculum.
Cambridge Home School has developed an independent curriculum that takes the best elements of Cambridge International and adds new ones to help students improve their academic performance. This approach helps students develop a deeper understanding of their subjects and improve their grades. We also ensure that students are exposed to new topics and subtopics designed to help them excel.
In June 2021, over 86% of our students could secure As and As in their target subjects, and 83% of our A Level students also secured two As and a B.
This impressive performance is attributed to our unique curriculum and the continuous changes we’re making to improve the quality of our education. We hope that the South Asian students will be able to see how our curriculum changes have affected their academic journey.
2. Qualified and Attentive Teachers
Many students in South Asia who are preparing for their A Level or IGCSE examinations are worried about the quality of their teachers. In the UK, many schools have experienced and qualified teachers.
At Cambridge Home School, our teachers are highly experienced and qualified. They have the necessary skills and knowledge to provide the best possible education to our students. Their approach is designed to take into account the various strengths and weaknesses.
One of the most important factors that a student should consider when preparing for their A Level examinations is the ability to identify and address their weaknesses. This can be done by the teacher, who should be able to identify these issues promptly. Unfortunately, many teachers do not take the time to address these issues and leave them at that. This leaves the student on the shoulders.
At Cambridge Home School Online, our MA/MSc/PhD qualified teachers are dedicated to ensuring every student receives the necessary attention and attention to improve their learning experience. This ensures that they can develop a mastery of the various subjects that they’re studying.
3. Lesson Retention
Studies have shown that Online schooling can lead to up to 60% higher retention levels and knowledge absorption. This is very important for older students as the IGCSE and A Level examinations are very important. If they perform well in these examinations, they will have a better chance of securing a university place and a variety of professional roles.
In preparation for the IGCSE Chemistry examination, you may have difficulty understanding and constructing chemical equations. Unfortunately, your performance will be negatively affected if you cannot keep these concepts up-to-date in the next couple of days or weeks.
Many students fail to retain certain critical components of their curriculum. As a student, you must revise each lesson by the end of the day. Also, ensure that the school provides the necessary resources to help you improve your skills.
At Cambridge Home School Online, we have a wide selection of educational resources designed to help students improve their skills and academic performance. These include
videos, study guides, and past papers. These materials have been carefully compiled and preserved to help students get the most out of their education.
As you revise, ensure you have the necessary resources to help you improve your skills. Since your teachers may not be able to provide you with the assistance needed during the next class, make the most of these resources by using them to improve your knowledge retention. Our online repository is the primary purpose of this program, and it is designed to provide you with the necessary tools to improve your knowledge retention.
One of the most effective ways to improve knowledge retention is by taking notes. Doing so will allow you to retain more of your lessons and keep improving. Implementing visual, auditory, and kinaesthetic methods is one of the most effective strategies that can help students improve their knowledge retention.
Use these strategies to improve your grades and keep track of your course materials. For instance, while preparing for the A Level Business Studies exam, remember that certain concepts that will benefit your future career should be covered in the next couple of weeks or months. These learnings will serve as a huge help in your professional and academic careers.
One of the most effective ways to improve knowledge retention is by taking notes. After sitting your exams, keep your notes and educational materials handy. This will allow you to keep track of all of the learnings that you have completed.
Making the Switch to Online Education in South Asia
At Cambridge Home School Online, we aim to ensure that our students perform well on examinations and have a healthy school-life balance. Besides academics, we also encourage social and personal development. Our students can enjoy their favourite activities such as sports, trips, and games during school hours.
Maintaining a healthy school-life balance is also important to ensure that our students can continue developing their skills and academic performance. This approach helps prevent them from burnout, which is a common issue among older students in South Asia.
The pressure that students put on themselves during their examinations can lead to academic stress and anxiety. This is because many schools encourage them to overwork themselves. Instead of improving their performance, they tend to perform poorly.
Cambridge Home School Online is a leading online school that provides a comprehensive British education for children in various age groups. We offer multiple programs, including Primary Prep, Lower School, Upper School, and Sixth Form. Cambridge Home School Online is also available to students living in other countries such as Europe, the Middle East, and Western Russia online education.
