Student Testimonial

Dimple Glydel A. Zafe


What I learned in SSLC college years became my foundation in preparing for the board exams. The mock board exams gave me a taste of how it will be in real PRC Board exams. It contributed to the confidence I needed while I was battling with worriment about the exam.

The implementation of VOLT by SSLC helped a lot in transforming the concept of education, and with that, I was able to have an organized and efficient mode of learning through the use of several platforms such as MOODLE, Google Classroom and other Google applications that enabled me to maximize my learning. I also appreciated the efforts and patience of my instructors in giving us their utmost best and ensuring that we get to learn in the most convenient way in this new normal.
