UNDERSTANDING YOUR SCHOOL EXAM
…because better grades create opportunities for life.
Covid-19During these worrying times we continue to supply all our services wherever possible to help you stay on track with your studies. The wellbeing of our examiners and our team at MMP is our priority and we are all working from home. We are attracting many enquiries from worried parents as well as schools in many global regions. Most are seeking information about having grades independently verified and help with their studies and marking. We make no charge for guidance and information and will help where we can. We plan to launch further supportive services in conjunction with our partners, please look in when you can for up dates. Please remain at home, stay safe and save lives.
Undertaking exams from home can be a daunting experience. Making sure that your child is on target to achieve his or her life goals is an overwhelming responsibility, and without the support of a school many parents feel confused as to how they can measure their child’s progress.
