Tutoring works! Congrats to 14 out of our 15 students who passed their BEPC!
Updated: Jul 21, 2021
Great news! Last Friday July 16th, the results of the BEPC (mandatory annual exam after 10 years of education) have been published. 14 out of the 15 students that participated in our tutoring program at the Lycée Bafang rural - Cameroon successfully passed their exam. This is a 93.33% passing rate compared to the school's passing rate of 88.83%. We are so proud of them!
In May 2021, Yume Africa launched a tutoring program to assist low performers students (below average) in preparation of their final annual exam. 15 students in 3e (equivalent of 10th grade), 10 girls and 5 boys have participated to a 6-week tutoring program. The program consisted of 20h a week after-class program in major courses (Maths, French, Science...) with rigorous and talented tutors. In the left picture, we can see a French teacher working with our students. The students were attentive and dedicated to the class. Their efforts paid off, 14 out of 15 of them passed successfully their exam as shown on the list in the right picture.
We can say without reserve: Tutoring works and can make a big difference in a student life. Studies have shown that tutoring can lift average students to the 98th percentile. And for high achievers, tutoring has proven to improve scores across all grade levels.(Source: https://www.varsitytutors.com/impact-of-tutoring)
Yume Africa is committed to excellence and will continue its tutoring program the next academic year 2021-22. This week, we are expecting the results of the baccalaureat which is the final exam of high school in most former French colonies. Stay tuned for the results!
