To help our students prepare well for the RES exams, our trainers offer full-day revision classes free-of-charge around 2 weeks before the exams.
The revision classes are held online in the form of a full-day Zoom session. Our students shall be informed via Email and/or WhatsApp.
As our commitment to help as many of our students clear the RES exams, our students can attend as many revision classes free-of-charge as they may require to eventually pass their RES exams.
