AS exams are a big step up, both in terms of their difficulty compared to GCSE exams, and also in their importance. After all, your predicted A2 grades will be based on your AS results.
Our AS level revision courses help you secure the good AS scores you need to pursue your higher education plans.
There are lots of reasons you might not fulfil your potential in your A2 exams. For instance:
Answering questions on one topic using information from another.
Lack of motivation, often caused by not knowing where to start
Not expressing answers correctly in exams
Getting the level of detail wrong when answering exam questions
Procrastinating instead of revising (we’ve all been there!)
We do not run crammer courses. We focus on providing excellent, individual support in the areas you need it. For instance:
Understanding exam objectives to get the highest possible marks.
Organising your learning
Coping with difficult, boring, pointless or overwhelming material.
Setting time limits for revison
Using knowledge instead of just remembering it.
If you need help to tackle AS re-sits, we’ll approach things slightly differently, to help you:
Unravel your performance and learn from your mistakes.
Review the most important topics
Understand how exam questions are weighted
Improve essay techniques
Check your answers and use the time wisely
But most importantly, our AS revision courses will give you the opportunity to ask questions and see how to work through problems. They’ll give you confidence by providing the chance to revise for AS retakes without interfering with the other demands of your A2 courses.
