Flow Partners with GoGSAT to bring free on-line help to students
Although early in the new school year, most Grade 6 students who are preparing to take the 2013 GSAT exams have long began their studies in preparation for this milestone academic evaluation. Broadband service provider Flow has stepped up to enable the students’ preparations by partnering with GoGSAT.com to provide free access to the award winning on-line GSAT exam preparation resource. The company has announced that all new and existing Flow internet customers will receive 1 month free access to the Silver package on GoGSAT.com.
The GoGSAT programme has earned a stellar reputation as Jamaica’s premier online academic resources based on the consistently excellent performance by students who utilize this invaluable resource.
“Since 2005 our subscribers have won hundreds of national scholarships including the 2012 Top GSAT Girl and Top GSAT Boy awards. We are particularly proud that in 2012 our subscribers won 50% of the Government Scholarship places,” said Shalette East, vice president - operations and marketing for GoGSAT Ltd. More than 200 preparatory and primary schools in Jamaica use the Go GSAT system.
GoGSAT provides quality examination preparation and online help to students in grades 1 through 6. This is done through the provision of educational games, thousands of practice questions, topic specific notes and tests, study guides, animated notes, as well as pre- and post- tests to evaluate students’ progress. In addition to access to test preparation materials, GoGSAT also provides students with access to live tutorials facilitated by Jamaican and Harvard University tutors, essay grading, eMentoring, 24/7 help as well as daily homework and research assistance. Top GSAT Girl Catherine Douse Top GSAT girl who scored the highest ever in GSAT with 100% in all areas said "The website is very helpful. I learnt things I never knew".
A grateful parent whose daughter gained a place at her first choice school Immaculate Conception High School, has credited GoGSAT saying “The very wide curriculum available on GoGSAT provided extra practice, the tutors on the live chat were able to answer questions when there were things she did not understand and I did not have to buy any additional books as GoGSAT provided enough material and practice questions to complement what she was doing at school.”
“Students at all levels increasingly rely on e-learning resources such as GoGSAT for exam revision, tutoring, homework help and general research. Our broadband internet technology enables them to take full advantage of these resources in order to achieve the academic success they seek,” said Denise Williams, director of corporate and government affairs at Columbus Communications Jamaica Limited, operators of the Flow brand. “Our partnership with GoGSAT is just one of the initiatives we have introduced in order to enable our consumers to have easy and affordable access to the services they need in order to achieve and do more.” Flow has also partnered with Hewlett-packard (HP) and local retailers Courts, Singer and MegaMart to provide affordable access to the technology that enable consumers to take advantage of on-line education resources such as GoGSAT.com. As a result of these partnerships consumers can take advantage of back-to-school values on computers bundled with Flow high speed internet service.
GoGSAT also provides educational materials that are useful resources for teachers such as handouts, worksheets, and practice tests. GoGSAT enables parents to monitor their child’s progress via access to a real-time on-line grade book which highlights the students’ strengths and weaknesses, thereby enabling focus of attention on areas that need more work.
