Re: Networking Group - JCs General

My niece is in year 1 Pioneer Jc. She scored mainly C for her subjects. The teacher say most kids will improve. Are Pioneer Jc papers tough? Will most do better for A levels? Worried because need at least B to qualify for most Uni courses.

Can share which brand you used that you are so satisfied with?
Used CIELO (milky). The odour is very much controlled and my hair does not feel dry. Managed to cover my white hair. Will continue to diy, much cheaper than salon.
