Over the last academic year Head of Physics, Ajit Hindocha, joined 15 others at Greenwich Observatory every Tuesday night to learn more about Astronomy, as he prepared himself to sit a GCSE in the subject.
After starting to teach the subject to Year 9 Eltham College students, Ajit wanted to know more about the subject himself. After a year of learning and time spent revising in preparation for his exam, he passed with the top grade of 9.
Ajit says, “I felt a sense of relief and achievement when I got my grade. The time back in the classroom had reminded me of the pressure and anticipation of taking exams and how our students feel. I have learned a tremendous amount, and I look forward to taking what I learnt and passing that on to Year 9“.
