What is the difference between linear and legacy specifications?

Linear specifications are now very common and 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.

Are there refreshments available?

Students have access to water and snacks throughout the day.

There will be regular breaks during the day and there are a variety of vending machines available on site.

For lunch students are encouraged to bring a packed lunch with them however our University sites do have facilities on site where students can purchase food.


What equipment do I need to bring?

Resources will be provided for all students including basic stationary and revision packs for all topic areas.

Two weeks prior to the course you will be sent a welcome pack which will contain important information regarding the course. Please ensure you read all of the information thoroughly before attending day 1.

Where are the revision courses held?

Our courses are held in University buildings chosen for their excellent facilities and location.  Course venues will vary depending upon your area. Please click on the revision centres page to find the closest course to you.

Are all the teachers fully qualified?

Unlike some other revision courses all of our tutors are fully qualified teachers  who  specialise in teaching at A Level. Many of our tutors are also involved in the examination process.

You can find out more about our tutors on our individual course pages.

All tutors will have provided evidence of having passed DBS checks.

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 the days covering year 1 content.  Please contact us to make a bespoke booking.

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 cancellation policy?

30 days: Attendees can receive refunds up to 30 days before the course start date.

In addition we will offer a refund if we are notified that the student cannot attend 72 hours before the course start date due to extenuating circumstances.

What is the maximum class size for each course?

Intensive Revision Courses

Class sizes are between 8- 10 students and the maximum class size is 10.  This allows tutors to give individualised support to students.

Booster Revision Days

Our lecture based booster days are delivered to a maximum of 24 students.

What examination boards do the courses cover?

Each course follows a specific exam board syllabus.  We do not mix exam boards and offer ‘generic’ revision.  All of our courses are bespoke and aim to cover the most popular exam boards.

The exam boards currently being delivered for each subject can be found in the subject page or under the individual course page.

What is the typical structure of a day?

Each day will start with registration at 9.00am and will finish at 4.00pm.

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

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

Sample timetable can be found on the individual course pages.

Is there wheelchair access?

There is full wheelchair access to all teaching areas. Please let us know on your application if you have any additional needs that we can assist with. Alternatively please contact us if you have any questions regarding any additional needs you may have.

Are there a minimum number of students required in order for a course to run?

Yes, each course must have a minimum of four students in order to run.  In the rare circumstance that a course is cancelled everyone involved will be notified at least of 2 weeks prior to the course start date.
