One Year Intensive A Level

Our one year intensive A level retake course is carefully designed to ensure that all topics are taught in detail, assuming no previous knowledge, but with a much sharper focus on the demands of the examination than you may have been accustomed to in the past. For over 40 years we have specialised in helping students who have obtained disappointing exam results to regain their confidence and gain the grades they need for progression to the university course or career of their choice.

We ensure that plenty of time is spent on answering and reviewing relevant past examination questions.  Regular homework, timed tests and trial examinations, together with frequent and detailed analysis of mark schemes and examiners' reports, ensure that by the time the examination season approaches you will be thoroughly prepared and confident.

Our highly experienced staff will be able to:

  • diagnose any gaps in your knowledge
  • improve your knowledge base in each subject
  • improve your comprehension of difficult topics
  • develop your powers of memory and recall
  • improve your examination technique
  • ensure you understand the examination specifications and instructions and what is required of you
  • give you the confidence needed to improve on your past performance

When retaking A levels, it is a good time to rethink your options and some students decide to drop certain subjects or change exam boards, all of which can considerably affect the final outcome.
