A/L examinations: A challenge or a battle?

"How to prepare for exams?" is a big question you ask yourself with the AL examinations approaching. Stress levels build up, nerves wrecking, nails bitten, fear of exams rising, as students scurry to prepare and get themselves ready for the big day.

This period of time is possibly the most important in one's school career, as for most students, university entrance or choice of study depends on the results of these exams. This of course leads to added pressure.

However, there is no short cut to success. "What can I do to ensure I am prepared?" is another question racing in these youngsters' minds as they embark on the quest for success. It is not sufficient to rely on self studying alone. Revision plays an essential role in being able to tackle an examination successfully.
As a socially responsible education institute, Imperial College goes beyond educating their own students.

In order to nurture the leaders of tomorrow, Imperial College has collaborated with the CIMA Sri Lanka Division to conduct revision programmes for Commerce and Science stream students sitting AL examinations this August.

The revision sessions organized in leading schools in main cities in Sri Lanka are conducted by popular university lecturers in Sri Lanka. These seminars have been highly effective and have accommodated as many as over a 1000 students from different schools, proving to be an effective tool to assist such students towards exam success.

The benefits to students are numerous. In addition to receiving the best support and being exposed to senior lecturers in the industry, and receiving high quality revision material, students also stand the chance of winning a full scholarship towards the tuition fees at the Certificate Level of CIMA from Imperial College.

"Our aim is to nurture the leaders of tomorrow. This simply means that our boundaries are not limited to creating sound CIMA graduates. We aspire to develop the youth of Sri Lanka. This has led us to venture into assisting Advanced Level students from all streams with their forthcoming examinations" commented Pravinth Rajaratnam, Director of Imperial College.

He further stated, "Collaborating with CIMA Sri Lanka in sponsoring the revision seminars is just one step towards many we intend to take in order to ensure the youth of this country have access to countless opportunities. We are pleased to be able to support students not only from Colombo, but from other cities as well."

Whilst anxiety builds amongst students, Imperial College takes great strides in addressing the needs of students and is gearing towards their next venture.
