EquatIO Mobile: Digital Math in the Palm of your Hand

Making Exams More Accessible


Exam season can be a daunting time for teachers and students alike, especially if some learners need that little extra bit of help to reach their full potential and ace those tests. Between rising numbers of students requiring a human reader to assist them during test-time, and GCSE resits on the up, schools are understandably under pressure to deliver results - success both academic and financial.
