The short answer? To make sure you are ready for the demands of A level or GCSE exams and can get the very best grades – the grades you need at A level for a top university place or the grades you need at GCSE for strong progress into sixth form study
1. Revise at Easter – get your best A level grades
Top grades at A level always demand the very best performance in the exam room, and students with A level exams next summer face the biggest educational challenge for a generation.
New-style A levels bring everything down to one set of exams. For nearly 20 years, school teachers and students have become used to the idea of gaining qualifications in steps, with AS exams one summer, then a chance to improve AS grades while adding final A2 exams in the final year of school.
Now A level exams are, once again, to be taken in one exam sitting at the end of the course. We aim to help you make the best of your one chance under the new A level system.
2. Revise at Easter – do all you can to secure your university ambition
Good A level grades ensure access to the best universities. More demanding A levels have been introduced at a time when it has become harder to access top university places, with increased competition for Oxford and Cambridge, Russell Group and other top universities – such as Bath, Bristol, Durham and LSE.
3. Revise at Easter – be ready for the GCSE challenge
For GCSE students, the summer brings your first major public exam challenge – and getting it right in the exam room is more important than ever, with fewer coursework options to boost your grade.
4. Revise at Easter – be ready for the demands of A level
Good GCSE grades mean you will have the widest choice of subjects at A level, and when you apply to Higher Education, they will increase your chances of an offer to study on the best courses at top universities.
While schools do all they can to prepare their pupils for exams, many young people find themselves feeling they need more support.
For students completing their first year of studying for the new GCSE (with more importance due to be placed on these results in the future), early preparation this Easter can help you get it right when you enter the exam room.
The wisest candidates enter the exam room knowing they are ready to succeed. On a Bath Tutorial College Easter Course, we aim to take the mystery away from exams, to set you on the right path for success.
Our Easter courses offer excellent teaching combined with the chance to work with other students facing the same problems, to share study ideas with a small group of young people who share your interests and ambitions. We also offer individual tuition for students who need very specific support in revising topics and answering effectively in the exam room.
It’s nice to have a holiday at Easter, but remember – THE EASTER BREAK IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO JOIN A REVISION PROGRAMME THAT CAN IMPROVE YOUR PERFORMANCE IN THE EXAM ROOM. Then you can enjoy a well-deserved long summer holiday.
So, if you’re thinking of taking a break at Easter, think again. Can you really afford to sit back and say you have already done everything you can to prepare for the exam room?
