The Dublin School of Grinds provides weekly grinds for students in 1st to 6th year (select your year from the menu).
Grinds are 75 minutes in duration and are held in a class-based environment. The foundation of our weekly grinds is ‘exam focus’. Our teachers strip away the unnecessary sections of each subject, and focus solely on the core, examinable material, the aim of which is increasing students’ exam performance.
All students who attend our weekly grinds receive comprehensive, exam-focused notes, as well as past State Examination questions and solutions. Our teachers identify probable exam questions and also show students how to master the marking scheme, which instils confidence.
Weekly grinds also include a special one-on-one service to all students, for a period of time before or after every class. This is a specialised, individual service, which we encourage all our students to take advantage of.
Grinds commence the week of Monday 3rd September 2018. If you have any queries, feel free to call us in the office on 01-442 4442.
