A. C. started Ric Cognitive Approach® in March 2012, when she was in Sec 3, to prepare herself for IGCSE in the following year. After one and a half year’s of cognitive training, she scored 7A* and 2 A in her IGCSE and was extremely happy with her results.
“I enjoyed Teacher Ric’s lessons immensely. The training methods he taught were extremely useful. I was able to memorise vast amounts of information in the span of 15 minutes to 45 minutes which would otherwise have taken me hours to do. Because of the cognitive trainings, my ability to absorb and digest information taught at school increased significantly. I found myself not having to study as much as I required to in the past. My capacity and speed of learning grew remarkably.
Thanks to the cognitive trainings and support I received from Teacher Ric, I was able to score 7 A* and 2 A in my finals (IGCSE) in Secondary 4.”
Clara Lee’s parents enrolled her into the program after seeing her sister’s progress during the Holiday Program. She joined RIC in 2007, when she was in Secondary 4. Before joining, she faced difficulties in her languages, often obtaining a mediocre score for English and other subjects. After a year of training and preparation for ‘O’ Levels, she obtained 2 A2, 3 B3 and 1 C5, resulting in a L1R4 of 14. With this, she was able to get into her desired course in Polytechnic. Having learnt Ric Cognitive Approach®, she was able to apply it to her studies in both Polytechnic and University, scoring ‘A’s for most of her modules and she felt that this is a life-long learning method that she is able to apply easily to schoolwork.
