Welcome to PrepTime!
We are pleased to announce that Prep Time is officially starting business on the 1st of June, 2020. What this means is that students and parents in Ghana and other West African countries writing WASSCE are about to benefit from one of the best exam preparation tools on the market.
Our products are mainly in two major subject categories: English and Mathematics. But why these two? Because they form the foundation for almost all learning the world has to offer. To be sure, statistics confirm that Ghanaian students need improvement in English and Mathematics. In 2019 alone, a total WASSCE (West African Secondary School Certificate Exams) student population of 186,217 produced F9s; of these, 78,038 were in English and 46,384 were in Mathematics. So out of the 346, 094 students who sat the WASSCE in Ghana, about 21.61% of them failed in the common language (English) for instruction and communication. In addition, 13.54% failed in Mathematics (WAEC GHANA, 2019). Both these figures represent a significant portion of the 2019 student population.
Thankfully, PrepTime is here to help the youth to not only improve their results but also to master learning at any level. As part of our mission to empower the youth to become self-directed learners, an e-book on how to study will be packaged with all of our test preparation products. This book will expand on a ‘secret’ formula for mastering learning at the junior, senior high school level and even tertiary level, and will inspire students to become the best they could ever dream of. We can’t wait to release this timely book to the public especially during these times.
Our hearts do go out to all students struggling with online education or self-study at home because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we hope that by the time the situation is fully under control, they would have discovered (through the PrepTime service) proven self-learning skills that only the ‘sharks'(naturally endowed or gifted brainy students, as they were called in my high school days) enjoy. The PrepTime team, who have decades of academic success under their belts, are ready to share many valuable tips on self-study through their online platform.
Therefore students and parents, let us make the year 2020 a memorable year of PrepTime adoption. Online learning or E-learning wasn’t the norm before the COVID-19 pandemic, and our lives have been impacted globally in ways we never expected. However, we can embrace E-learning as the new normal in education and ride with it for our long-term benefit. To that end, we again announce the birth of PrepTime, the new normal in test prep.
