## Course Concept

IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) Mathematics is a course designed for students in the age range of 14-16. It provides a solid foundation in mathematical concepts and skills, preparing students for further studies in mathematics or related fields. The IGCSE Mathematics curriculum aims to develop students' mathematical knowledge, problem-solving abilities, and critical thinking skills. It is divided in:

• Mathematical understanding: The course aims to develop students' understanding of mathematical concepts, including the ability to recognize patterns, make connections between different areas of mathematics, and apply mathematical principles to real-life situations.
• Problem-solving skills: IGCSE Mathematics focuses on developing students' problem-solving skills. They learn to analyze problems, select appropriate strategies and techniques, and apply them to find solutions. Problem-solving involves logical reasoning, making conjectures, and testing hypotheses.
• Mathematical communication: Students learn to effectively communicate mathematical ideas, methods, and solutions using mathematical language, symbols, and diagrams. They develop skills in explaining their reasoning, justifying their solutions, and interpreting and evaluating mathematical information.
• Mathematical techniques and applications: The course introduces students to a range of mathematical techniques and their applications. They learn to use formulas, algorithms, and procedures to perform calculations, solve equations, manipulate data, and analyze geometric shapes.
• Mathematical modeling: IGCSE Mathematics emphasizes the use of mathematical modeling to represent and solve real-world problems. Students learn to translate practical situations into mathematical models, make assumptions, and use mathematical methods to analyze and interpret the results.
• Numerical and graphical representation: Students develop skills in representing and interpreting data numerically and graphically. They learn to use tables, charts, graphs, and diagrams to organize and present data, identify trends and patterns, and make predictions

A* in A level Maths

Kavita was a wonderful tutor for my daughter during the months running up to A-level Maths. She clearly explained the areas that my daughter was struggling with. In addition to covering problem topics, Kavita boosted my daughter's confidence, which is almost as important as the academic content. I couldn't rate Kavita more highly.

• When is the best time to get started?
expand_more

The earlier the better! When students come to us right before it is time to apply to college, there is only so much we can do. We can certainly help these students with score improvements and craft as compelling an application as possible, but we are given experiences and data points that cannot be altered.

When students come to us early in their educational careers, we pair them with a counselor to help them develop as applicants, students, and people early on. We help students strategize early, build their profiles, and stand out from their peers. We help students explore and develop their academic interests, engage in unique and meaningful extracurricular activities, strengthen their personal qualities and leadership skills, and ultimately, position them to get into the best schools possible.

It takes A LOT of hard work, strategy, determination, and self-reflection to get into the school of your dreams. At AP Guru, we are here, every step of the way, to help you get there.

• Do test prep courses work?
expand_more

Yes! Standardized tests focus on a small, unique set of skills and topics. By knowing exactly what types of questions are on the test, a student gains a distinct advantage. Furthermore, a great tutoring company can build on this advantage by providing a highly individualized learning experience and a wealth of fantastic strategies for all types of students.  We have the evidence from thousands of students across 10+ years that great improvement is possible for nearly everyone.

• Do you only help students who want to go to top schools?
expand_more

No. We know that each student is different and has unique goals and aspirations. Our focus is to help each student excel in the tests and exams they are preparing towards.

• What kind of results should I expect?
expand_more

In terms of academic scores, for students not already at the top of the range, we typically want to see at least a 20 percentile rank improvement (the actual raw score this translates to varies across the scale). Going from the 50th to 70th percentile or from the 70th to 90th typically opens up a whole new range of schools for students.
