What is jumpAgrade?
JumpAgrade is an online service trusted by thousands of second-level students and their parents across Ireland when preparing for exams. It is the modern alternative to grinds.
How do jumpAgrade’s online grinds work?
A student completes a Needs Analysis and is assigned to their own personal tutor each week. The weekly cycle includes a personalised worksheet every Wednesday, submit written work by taking photos and uploading them by Sunday, and then receive video feedback from your tutor ahead of your next worksheet.

Who are the tutors?
Our tutors are fully qualified teachers with examiner experience correcting the state exams. You can meet Nicola and Danielle here.
Does the student have direct contact with their teacher?
With each submission, the student is asked how long they spent on the work, what they found easy, what they found hard, how confident they were with their answers and what they are covering in class?
A student can leave a note after they submit their work online each week
They can contact the jumpAgrade team if they have any specific query they would like to pass on their tutor
If a student is in the middle of a worksheet and they get stuck on a part, what should they do?
Contact the jumpAgrade team via email on info@jumpagrade.com and we will get in touch with your tutor straight away :)
How are my worksheets sent to me?
Worksheets are made available on the students' jumpAgrade account at student.jumpagrade.com each Wednesday at 6pm. It is available as a PDF.
How can I upload my answers/work?
When logged into student.jumpagrade.com, a student can submit their work by adding photos of their written work. You will be guided through this from within your account.
What do I do if my needs analysis changes or I feel I need to focus on different things since filling out that form?
If you feel you want to cover a new topic or focus on an area you need more help on, simply add a note at the end of your submission to ask your tutor to move onto that topic
Is there any option to change tutor once I have started a term with them?
We aim for all students to retain the same tutor for the entire school year in order for the teacher to get a better understanding of where to focus their efforts to help you improve the most. If for any particular reason you feel unhappy with your tutor, contact the jumpAgrade team explaing the reasons and we will address it immediately.
How much does jumpAgrade cost?
jumpAgrade starts at €25 per week, with annual, monthly and weekly pricing available. For more information on pricing, visit the pricing page.

If I have more than one son or daughter signing up for jumpAgrade, is there a family discount?

What happens if I do not submit my work?
