I express with great pleasure that the spearhead behind my achievement is JMC College International which paved the way to successfully get through the G.C.E. A/L Examination. We were taught by good teachers who were well-qualified in both academic and professional education, under the supervision of well-experienced and qualified Principal and Management.
Our dedicated teachers gave us individual attention and they taught us how to be sensitive to the dynamic business world and also to analyze those changes with the aid of recent case studies. They gave us a behind-the-scene support to explore the world on our own. I firmly believe that it helped me to provide good answers at the Examination. We learnt how to handle extra-curricular activities. Time to time the Principal and the Management evaluated the progress of students individually and they provided us all facilities which created a student-friendly environment. Proud to be a JMCian!
