My son is in year 10 and he works hard but doesn't seem to perform well in exams. He is being taught the content well but struggles with the application of answers. Also, he doesn't always know what is required of him in the actual question. Will Get My Grades help him towards this?
Absolutely, the Get My Grades platform allows your son to practise realistic exam questions and after each question, he will be presented with a detailed student-friendly mark scheme so he can see what he can earn marks for.
Your son can then mark his own work using the detailed guidance and answer explanation and his working can be reviewed by his teacher or any tutors he may work with, or you can check the assignments to help him yourself.
The Get My Grades system has adaptive learning software built into it so that if your son finds it difficult, he will be presented with easier questions that will automatically get harder for topics he is doing well in. You will easily be able to see which aspects of his course he has done well in and which areas he finds more difficult.
Our software has been built by expert teachers and tutors who understand it is absolutely essential for students to practice questions in order to learn effectively. In addition, our Head of Research is currently looking into the spread of question types in actual exams, and we're finding that between 4-9% of a paper currently consists of multiple choice questions, which supports our reasoning for using not just multiple choice questions in order to effectively test our students.
