5 Questions With Rikke Ronnow

Rikke achieved Best Overall IGCSE results, with grades higher than any other student. Here, Rikke shares advice on how other students can do the same. 

  • Rikke Ronnow

Full Name:  Rikke Rønnow

Age: 17

1. What advice would you give students doing their IGCSEs?

If you want to do well on exams, you should do practice tests and mark them yourself. Pay attention to both the parts you did well on and the parts you didn’t, so you know where you went wrong, as well as why you did well on the parts that you did well on. Study with friends you know you work well with. Having different people explain difficult concepts to you and helping others both improve your understanding of a subject. I also find that writing things down helps me remember them, regardless of whether I go over them again, even if I’m just copying from the textbook.

2. What inspires you in life? Solving problems.

3. What subject do you plan to study in university? Engineering.

4. What do you want to do after you graduate college and why?

I want to be an engineer, because I like maths and physics.

5. What is the most interesting subject for you and why?

Maths, because at this level, most subjects require more memorisation than understanding and application, so they get repetitive and aren’t difficult to solve.
