What People Say

I joined Accolade to do my Pearson Edexcel A/L exams and went for classes in Economics and Accounts. I had two good lecturers who taught and guided me right throughout till I sat for the exams. Following their advice and with my effort, I achieved "A" grades on my subjects.

I wish to thank the Management and Lecturers for helping me and providing me with the necessary facilities. I wish to recommend ACCOLADE to all students who are planning to do Edexcel Advanced Level exams privately and to those who wish to gain additional assistance.

As a student who learned for IGCSE, AS and A2 solely through the 'Accolade', I write to present an insight of my learning experience. The institution was recommended to me by a close friend. I started to study for IGCSE in 2014 when I was 14 years old in the science stream solely through Accolade; I did not attend school.

All the classes I needed were provided and the teachers were amazingly helpful. What I found interesting was how the management always asked students whether they were satisfied with the services provided; the friendly receptionists would ask us "how are your lessons going?" or "are you happy with the way he/she teaches?" whenever we met them. This supportive and friendly environment created an atmosphere that is easier for students to learn in and largely contributed to our success.

I was able to get an A*, 3 As and 2 Bs for IGCSE and I largely owe it to the teachers at Accolade who tutored the students enthusiastically. The management's choice of teachers is excellent; the chemistry teacher who taught me for IGCSE taught a subject I found 'disgusting' so enthusiastically that I received an A for the subject, the Business Studies teacher; Varun Chandramohan teaches in a fascinating way and I completely owe the 100% mark I received for the subject to him.

Last but not least, I found it supportive that no teacher chose to emphasize on my age and make me uncomfortable about being younger than the normal student; they involved me in conversations, respected my opinion without regard to my age and I am thankful for that. Accolade is an institute that I would recommend to anyone who aspires to achieve good grades.

Choosing Accolade was one of the best decisions I have made and it made me successful in Edexcel IAL examinations. Choosing Accolade was one of the best decisions I have made and it made me successful in Edexcel IAL examinations.

The guidance provided by the academic staff was remarkable. Comprehensive coverage of syllabus, in-depth analysis of past papers and individual attention extended made the study programme a unique one. I am grateful to Accolade for guiding me to obtain three A*s for Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics at Edexcel IAL Examinations - 2014"
