The Dublin School of Grinds has decided to run FREE Revision Courses from 2nd – 13th January. Students can avail of 6 hours of tuition by attending up to three courses, totally free of charge.

Students who attend these courses will receive:
> Multiple booklets of our H1 study notes.
> Six hours of expert tuition with Ireland’s leading teachers.
> Past and probable exam questions that are likely to appear in this year’s State Examinations.

Our sole purpose is to maximise students’ CAO points, so with only five months left until the exams, don’t miss out on your chance to maximise grades. Join the hundreds of students already ensuring that they get enough points for their dream college course.

Note 1: Students who attended a subject for a previous Free Course are unable to sign up to a Free Revision Course in that particular subject. However, students can attend any other 3 subjects.

Note 2: These courses will book out, so early booking is crucial.

Business Studies

This course will give students the tools necessary to excel in the upcoming exam. Students will have an insight into the questions that will most likely appear. The course will be exam-focused. Students will also receive the “Holy Grail” set of notes, which will help them understand the examiners’ marking scheme.

About the teacher: As an experienced examiner, Martin Quinn brings with him a deep understanding of the curriculum and marking scheme. Martin's extensive knowledge of the Business Studies syllabus, complemented by his ability to relate to students, means he is fully equipped to prepare students to achieve their maximum capabilities.

English

This course is built on the fact that almost half of all the questions students will be answering on is material that they have never seen before. Students will receive fully worked notes and past paper examples of the most popular questions. All notes place a heavy emphasis on the value of understanding the marking scheme, and on using that knowledge to write a well-structured answer for the examiner.

Gavin CowzerAbout the teacher: Gavin Cowzer is regarded as a leading English teacher in this country. Having developed a passion for this subject, including obtaining a Master’s degree, Gavin’s teaching style is focused on covering the syllabus in a concise way, so that students have the tools to successfully manage the likely exam questions. His experience correcting exams gives his students an edge in a subject which is often assumed to be an art. However it is clear that there is a strict science behind doing well in the English exam and Gavin’s students will be guided by this little-known fact.

Irish

This course is designed with the key objective of making this exam more approachable for students through developing universal answers which will cover them for any question which may appear in June. Students will learn about the “exam day plan”, highlighting the DO’s and DON’Ts for exam day, focusing on simple techniques that they can use to raise their grade.

Maths

By the time you leave this course you will have a host of past and likely exam questions, including fully worked solutions. You will benefit greatly from a set of notes called ‘The Holy Grail’, which outlines how to take advantage of the marking scheme. Note: Students will also receive our teacher’s predictions for Junior Certificate 2017.
