Secret of Success of British School

English approach: “We learn not for school, but for life”. Have you ever wondered: what should be the ideal lesson? “It is focused, involving the previous materials” – says 15-year-old student at the British School Repton School (Derby). When the student went to Repton after the CIS school, it was a great shock for him how tangible and practical training can be: “To solve the problem of physics, we collect real models. Gadgets were used too, but only in order to improve or create something new instead of copying and spend time on the Internet. ”

Many parents say that today’s children are fluent in English. However, the future is related to the critical thinking, an extension of ideas and analysis of large amounts of information. It is important to be as early as possible in an interactive learning environment, where you can engage in dialogue and hold discussions.

One of the first sayings, which the child learns during a lesson in Latin, English school, is saying of Seneca: “Non scholae, sed vitae discimus” – «We learn not for school, but for life.” Already in middle school children begin to think about their future profession. Ability to choose subjects at GCSE completely solves the issue with their preferences. Biology, chemistry, physics, art history, philosophy, foreign languages, computer technology – each of the selected objects thoroughly studied.

The student has chosen, for example, the math is in the same group to motivate children and those who prefer Spanish, falls into the group of the level of language. All this creates a competitive environment and ensure a smooth transition from school to university level.

There is a striking practical orientation of British schools, but even more amazing the depth of the object being studied. St. Leonard’s School (St Andrews) that is located in Scotland a few years ago has completely passed to the IB (International Baccalaureate). IB allows children to study three subjects at standard level and three items on the in-depth level. According to the director of a selection committee St. Leonard’s School “the IB program participants are not used to” snap tops “and settle for” common knowledge.”

They penetrate into the very essence of the subject, read the primary sources and find parallels between the disciplines, following the example of” This approach gives the opportunity for children to a thorough study the material – that would be required at the university.

Study Habits For Students


  1. Choose the time and place of study. If you don’t know when you are going to do your coursework writing and whether there will be enough space for it, you become stressed and show poor results during the test. If you prefer crowded places, you can go for a café or a coffee shop. If you tend to be distracted by noise and don’t want people around you, try the campus rest room or the library. This place should be yours and yours alone, not in the terms of property, but effective learning.
  2. Start with the most difficult material and as the tensions rise, go for a simpler, more familiar topic. You can choose to work in the morning and cover all the complex parts before noon or create a nocturnal routine if you are more of an owl. It’s important to prioritize and have all the tasks and materials in front of you, be it on flashcards or large sheets of paper.
  3. Set your perfect groove. Are you a fan of outdoor learning or do you prefer to study with friends? You can choose your own routine, alternating between social activities and the preparation work. No matter what you pick, you can still be successful as you divide material into parts with deadlines. The most crucial thing about the mood and the setting is that you have to comfortable and honest with yourself, finding ways to reveal the potential.
  4. There is nothing more satisfying than knowing what your teacher is going to say before he even opens his mouth. Study the material beforehand so you feel confident in front of the classroom and be ready for unexpected questions if it’s a test. Bring your notebook and lectures to check on them during the breaks and add ideas as the teacher speaks on.
  5. Be active. Get involved in round table talks, participate in heated discussions… Commitment will be obvious once start. Ask questions that can provoke deep, meaningful conversations and listen carefully to what your tutor says. Sooner or later you will be forced to take part in the talk. If you struggle with a course that is too hard, approach your instructor to get some assistance. If he can’t help, ask of any study groups that are available in college where you can get professional support and learn material together. If you don’t want to cram for finals, follow this routine and you will see that it’s quite easy to get an ‘A’ once you are determined. To conclude, we would suggest you get some support from your family and friends. Tell them you have an important examination and make them test you, or fake test you if you wish. Do not believe people that say this may be a distraction. Your friends may also have some useful tips to share.

AT&T Tech Support 360

2Although mainly targeting small and large business AT&T Tech Support 360 are a US based subscription service that will strive to get you out of any technical spot of bother. Their aid includes PC and Apple Tech support, network and security setup, software installation and configuring your peripherals. They can also take a look at activating online data backup and provide server support.

Interestingly they remotely access your computer using desktop sharing technology, letting them tap into your personal system and fix the issues over the Internet.

AT&T Tech Support 360 state 24/7 support but that term applies loosely as you are usually required to schedule their apple tech support services well in advance or wait for the next available appointment – not ideal if your computer is literally packing up in front of you.

Price: AT&T Tech Support 360 customer care for Mac starts at a monthly subsciption fee of $24.00


Again AskDrTech are based in the US and Canada – not a great start if you are a resident of another country. Following the same pattern as At&T this apple tech support service offers help on any technical issue related to Windows, Mac OS or peripherals. They also work their magic by activating a remote desktop connection to login into your desktop and tackle the plaguing issue personally.

When it comes to Mac’s AskDrTech focus on fixing problems with Mac OS X Mail, general support, installation tips and advice on Mac downloads and updates.


Price: The cost is significantly higher than At&T and MacKeeper, AskDrTech has a fee of $37.00 per problem or alternatively a hefty $147.00 annually.

Mac Tech Support – Summary

Apple Care  costs a penny. Questions-answers forum members are not responsible for their suggestions. AskDrTech exorbitant price of $37.00 per each service doesn’t make as big a splash as MacKeeper and AT&T Mac technical assistant offers. MacKeeper’s Geek on Demand offers unlimited help together with 16 easy to use tools. Customers may choose the type of subscription they need. As for AT&T, they expect a monthly subscription fee of $25.95 and having to book your appointment slot in advance certainly has its drawbacks and makes them quite useless for urgent cases.
