FAQ

How do I make a booking?

In order to book on to a course please select the course you are interested in on the subjects and booking tab.  Simply click on book course where you will be taken to the secure Eventbrite booking system to process your booking and payment.

Please note we operate a live booking system, therefore places cannot be reserved and will operate on a first come first served basis.

What examination boards do our courses cover?

Each subject area follows a specific exam board.  Unlike other revision companies we do not mix exam boards and offer ‘generic’ revision.  All of our courses are bespoke and cover the most popular exam boards.

The exam boards currently being delivered can be found under individual subject areas.

What is the difference between linear and legacy specifications?

Linear specifications were first introduced in 2016.  They are what are known as the new ‘reform’ A levels.  These A levels require students to complete an exam at the end of the two years in order to gain an A level qualification.  You can still complete an AS qualification under the new format, however unlike before any marks gained at AS do not count towards the full A level.

Legacy specifications are gradually being phased out, but some subjects are still being delivered in this way.  For example the PE and Maths courses we offer still have legacy options.  With these courses there is a distinct difference between studying the AS and A2 content.  Also the AS exam in this circumstance will count towards the A2 qualification.

If you are unsure of which course you should book on to please contact us and we will be happy to advise you.

I am a first year student studying a linear A level course, I am due to take an AS qualification this summer, can I still attend?

The simple answer is YES but you can only complete day 1 and day 2 of the course as day 3 will be covering second year content.

First year students taking an AS last year who attended found the courses extremely useful and many have asked to return to cover the full course the following year.

What is the typical structure of a day?

Each day will start with registration at 9.00am and will be finished by 4.00pm.

Students will receive on average 6 hours of tuition a day and each course has been created to optimise the balance between concentration and depth of study.

Typically sessions will last for 1 hour but this will vary between courses.
