6th Year Grinds Free Trial
Info

Try our 6th Year Weekly Grinds for free.

At The Dublin Academy of Education, we offer all 6th Year students the chance to try subjects for free in Killester and Stillorgan before committing to a full year of grinds. At these free trials, students can experience first hand the quality of our teachers and their notes. Students can book up to 2 subjects free of charge.

Weekly Grinds are 75 minutes in duration and are held in a class-based environment. The foundation of our Weekly Grinds is ‘exam focus’. Our teachers strip away the unnecessary sections of each subject and focus solely on the core, examinable material, the aim of which is increasing students’ exam performance.

All students who attend our classroom-based 6th Year Weekly Grinds receive comprehensive, exam-focused notes, as well as past State Examination questions and solutions. Our teachers identify probable exam questions and also show students how to master the marking scheme, which instils confidence.

If you have any queries, feel free to call us in the office on 01-442 4442.
