CONEL hosted a presentation for the GCSE exam competition at the Tottenham Centre, in July. Twenty students who sat either their GCSE Maths or English exam were randomly selected from a prize draw to win an iPad.
The students, who have now finished their exams and classes for this academic year, were delighted and surprised to have won an iPad. Mary Aninwoya, studying Skills for Health and Social Care stated: “I was over the moon to hear I won an iPad, I was not expecting it and I am very grateful. I am eagerly awaiting the results in August to allow me to progress to Access to Nursing at CONEL”.
Samuel Thomas added: “This was a great opportunity and I am very appreciative of the College. It was challenging balancing GCSE English alongside my Extended Diploma in ICT but with the great support of the teachers I was able to finish. I need this qualification because I can't go to university without English and Maths in order to get a good job and progress well in my career.”
Head of School for English & Maths, Sheila Rai stated: “These students have worked with dedication and commitment and deserve a positive achievement in August when GCSE results are released. Their drive to succeed and achieve a GCSE in English and/or maths will open many doors into employment, Apprenticeships and Higher Education.”
