GCEHelper : an application that helps students make better grades at the GCE Examinations

Written by Zuo Bruno

Tell us a few words about the founders and how the idea came

 GCEHelper was founded in 2014. The idea started as a discussion between me and Mr. Tali Aaron (a teacher with more than 25 years experience and also a GCE Examiner). The GCE results for that year was really bad on average and while we were discussing, I asked him why he thinks, students fail at the GCE, he replied by telling me that although there are a number of reasons why a student might fail the two main important reasons are:

1- Students do not know how to interpret GCE Based questions

2- Students do not know how to approach or place the answers the way it is expected of them

Thus GCEHelper was created to help students make better grade by helping them understand how to interpret and approach gce based questions but at the “A” and “O” Levels
