Congratulations to all out AQE and GL Assessment Transfer Test students
Martin and Clare would like to share the great news that this has been our best ever year for Transfer Test results in the four and half years since our Lisburn tuition centre opened.
We have been delighted this week to find out that our 2012 Transfer Test students have done so well. Huge congratulations to everyone! We had 12 students scoring over 100 in the AQE test, with 4 of those scoring over 113! Another 4 had marks between 90 and 100. We were also delighted to hear that 4 out of our 6 GL Assessment students achieved an A. Martin, Clare and our tutors Martina, and Gillian are very proud of you!
A special congratulations goes out to Valeri. Valeri is Bulgarian and has been attending Kip McGrath Lisburn since P4. When he first came to us his English was limited to basic greetings and he was finding school difficult. Valeri has gone on to achieve an A in the GL Assessment test and 108 in the AQE. Not only that – he is the first Bulgarian student in Northern Ireland to acheive an A! We are immensely proud and wish him every success in his chosen school, Methodist College in September.
I wanted to share some of the comments we have received in the past few days.
“Just a line to let you know that Mollie got an A in the GL assessment. She is absolutely delighted as are we. All being well she will be going to Dominican College, Fortwilliam. Mary and I would like to thank you once again for all the work you put in with Mollie. We appreciated the calm and relaxed manner in which you worked with her. I think it is a testament to you that never once did she baulk at getting up so early on a Saturday morning to go to your classes. We will have no hesitation in recommending you to anybody else seeking tuition.” Jim McAlister
“Just a quick note to let you know that Adam got 108 in his transfer test. I would like to take this opportunity in thanking you for your professionalism, dedication and skill in helping Adam attain this mark. Adam is my second child that you have helped, and I will have no hesitation in sending my third when the time comes.” Nigel Irwin
“Delighted with Jane’s results today – A in GL and Q1 in AQE. Many thanks to Martin for your help last summer. We are so pleased :-)” Clare McMahon
“We are thrilled that Sarah got 119 in her transfer tests and want to thank you for all the work you put in with Sarah in preparing her for the tests. You made what had been a tense time for her so calm and relaxed and I know that she got so much from her Saturday morning classes. Having another child currently receiving tution we can see the results from your patience and expertise and again a big thank you for this. I would have no hesitation recommending Kip McGrath, Lisburn for anyone seeking tuition.” Karen Allen
“Martin, I think you helped me initially to find theplaces where I needed to polish up on the curriculum and then helped me develop those areas to the right level for the exams. It was also very helpful that I could get a different perspective on explanations of subjects I wasn’t clear on, so that I could understand them better. Overall, I think Kip McGrath helped me to become an A student with the combination of good teaching and the focused environment on a Friday to get it all on board. I’ll be back in the Summer for a brush-up before senior school starts and my sister will definitely be going to see you next year as well to help her prepare for the transfer tests.” Conor McMullan
