It’s time for another Spotlight post! This week we’ve been catching up with another of Mital’s former students, Mirunalini Suthan to see how she’s been doing.
What subjects did you study when you were here?
I studied Chemistry A-level at Spark.
Why did you choose to study with Spark instead of anywhere else?
The centre was recommended by a family friend to us. Spark was also the only tuition centre which offered chemistry for A-level pupils from the many others I looked up.
What did you enjoy most while you were attending your tuition lessons?
I attended taster sessions there and really liked the environment and teaching style. The environment was friendly and comfortable which allowed to ask as many questions and I needed to until I fully understood the topic. I also liked the fact that we were given booklets that were specific to each topic with questions in them so that we could practise them. This was very useful as it helped to not become intimidated by the questions and style of questions.
What are you doing now?
I have been accepted by the University of Hull to study the course I wanted (Geology with Physical Geography (Bsc) )
Do you feel like Spark helped you to achieve what you wanted to achieve?
Spark was very helpful as going there gave me the drive and motivation to keep pushing myself to do even better than I did before. I gained a lot of knowledge and skills in terms of answering questions. My level of confidence and attitude towards answering questions has change and improved significantly. Now I’m not intimidated by harder questions or afraid to answer them. I am also proud to say that I am no longer embarrassed when not knowing the correct answer to a question or asking for extra help. This is a big achievement for me as that feeling of embarrassment has been a very large hurdle for me to pass for these past few years, it was something I’ve never thought I could do.
What advice would you give students currently at Spark?
The only piece of advice I would give to current students is that they should give 100% of their effort when learning and to never ever feel embarrassed to ask for extra help. Asking for extra help does not make you less intelligent than others in your class. It will all be worth it and it will definitely help you in the long run.
