Vanessa White asked:
Hi, daughter of 15 born in Glasgow and now in Costa Rica wants to study math. She's homeschooled and had no official curriculum. Would she cope?
Hi. The simple answer is yes. However, the main factors are her own motivation and confidence as well as the emotional suport from yourself. The main impediment in maths is that some parts can leave students feeling like they are battering their head of a brick wall. Through perseverance and tutor support, these obstacles will be overcome. Our materials start at the basics, what is a number, adding two numbers (done pictorially) and moving a step at a time. No more room - please ask again.This was helpful. Thank you for your feedback.

Regarding my earlier question, thank you for your feedback. Would my daughter be able to write the exam anywhere in Central America or only in the UK
Hi again. We are limited on words on this so ask as many Qs as you need. If sitting the exam abroad then contact the British Coouncil as they mange UK exams abroad. I don't see a BC location in CR on their website. Failing that, then you can try the British School of Costa Rica in San Jose.

Hi The exams are on 24th of May and 7th of June. There is still time. You usually need to give exam centres at least 3 months notice so they may charge a bit more to sit the exam. If you go inside a month they will charge you even more. Regards Absorb Student Support TeamThis was helpful. Thank you for your feedback.

Hi, What is the difference, apart from price with the IGCSE and GCSE courses?
Hi Diane. No real difference. They are both equally accepted as equivalent qualifications. There are some minor differences that often make igcse easier for independent students. For example, in English the GCSE has a compulsory speaking assessment and the igcse doesn't. In most subjects, though, since the change over to the new GCSEs these differences have disappeared.This was helpful. Thank you for your feedback.
Could I pay for the online gcse maths in instalments?. If not, could you recommend an alternative online website for gcse maths please.
Hi Cheryl. I am afraid I can't recommend other websites as this system does not allow me to enter web addresses. Regards Absorbeonlinelearning team.This was helpful. Thank you for your feedback.
Re: Exam centres asked:
Am interested in enrolling on to the above course could you confirm if there are any exam centres based in Newcastle. Many thanks Louise
Hi Louise. To check for centres Google Edexcel private candidates. Look for a link that says "Where can I take Pearson qualification exams? " Or just google that question. You will get an interactive map. I have just checked it and it seems the nearest centre is Middleborough. However, the map is not 100% up to date. Try phoning round local schools and colleges and tell them you want to it EDEXCEL GCSE Maths and ask if they accept private candidates.This was helpful. Thank you for your feedback.
