I sincerely would like to thank you for the marvellous course you have put together. Not only do you prepare children for the exams, but the way the course is set up ensures that the material is thoroughly learnt. My daughter knows her Biology and Chemistry extremely well, and it will serve as a fantastic foundation to further science studies. She eventually would like to study veterinary medicine, so it’s comforting to know that she is off on the right, and steady, foot.
Thank you for all your help.

T is very pleased – got a 7, so an A in old terms.  Really really happy with the result.

Thank you so much for all your help, your feedback was invaluable and definitely made a huge difference.

Just a line to let you know about one of your former distance-taught students. She just started this week her Physics degree at St Andrews. She took the IGCSE with you a few years ago. Her interest in physics only grew, and she’s already talking about her PhD. Thank you for helping make a formal start in her chosen discipline a great introduction!

Recent exam results

Congratulations to everyone on their exam results this year. With lots of them in now, we’ve had a wonderful 91% get a grade 6 (or C) or higher, which is brilliant. 43% got an 8 or 9 (A/A*) equivalent. Whatever you achieved, well done, and if you haven’t let your tutor know they always love to hear how you got on.

Some recent feedback:

 S really enjoyed the subject and loved the format of the course, it worked very well for her and we’ve recommended ECHO to several friends!

Having just finished my last science exam I wanted to thank you for dealing with my slightly sporadic submissions and marking them so quickly

I just wanted to say thank you and to inform you that she scored a B.  She was over the moon!

Thank you so much for the advise and encouraging feedback on his mock paper it certainly helped him to achieve his A grade.

Thank you so much for all your help. I am very happy to say that I got a B in chemistry and biology.

I just wanted to thank you for helping me get through my biology and chemistry GCSEs, somehow I managed to get two A*. I didn’t expect to do that well but am super happy. 

Parent feedback

We have been absolutely delighted with the courses provided by Echo Education and would not hesitate to recommend them. When my son was thirteen, he studied Biology and attained an A*. This past year, he gained another A* in Physics and two A’s in Chemistry and Human Biology. In fact, my son likes and trusts Echo so much that this year, he has chosen to study Geography and History with them even though they aren’t his favourite subjects! He just didn’t want a different provider. Echo are always extremely quick to respond to queries and their marking comments are thorough, encouraging, and helpful. They always point out areas that come up frequently in exams and may therefore need more careful attention.
Not only that, but in areas where my son needed help to understand a concept, the tutors wrote a personalised, detailed response to his queries. It really is an excellent service.


2017 exam results

Congratulations to everyone who’s got their exam results! We’re delighted to say that yet again we have a 100% pass rate (C or above) and 74% A or A* grades. Well done everyone, great work. We’re very proud of you all.

L says “I’ve just opened my results and I’m overjoyed to say that I got an A in biology! I’m so happy! Thank you for all the hard work, time and patience that you put into me!”

M says “Just to let you know that J gained an A in IGCSE chemistry and an A* in IGCSE physics! He’s very pleased!!”

F says “I just wanted you to know what E’s results were and to say thank you for all the help that you have given us.
Physics A*
Chemistry A
Human Biology A
So grateful to you and your team.

T says “I got a solid A*. Thank you very much for all the help u have given me!”

Parent feedback

I just wanted to let you know how we are getting on with this course.  I’ve always felt a bit lost teaching science.  I wanted it to be fun, but educational. I struggled to find a curriculum that didn’t make me feel I was out of my depth or that it was overly simple.  This course is brilliant!  I can read ahead and feel completely confident to teach topics that I haven’t thought about in 20 years!  My children are intelligent 11 and 13 year olds and they are definitely learning!  The experiments are easy to do at home and the materials aren’t at all hard to find.

Thank you.  We will definitely be using more of your curriculum in the future.
