One year A Level Retakes – start Sept 2018
One year A Level retake courses
If you have missed out on your first choice university or course, A Level retakes in our private London Sixth Form College can help you boost your grades and gain entry into your desired course/university.
With university becoming much more expensive in recent years, it is now even more worthwhile for you to gain the grades you could have achieved first time around, rather than choose a less well regarded course or university.
It is often possible to get a two-grade improvement in each subject – so you could jump from three Cs to three As in one year.
With the new A Level specifications applying to all A Level subjects now, modular resits are no longer allowed. This means that most retakes will be over the course of a full year, with examinations in June.
Retake students have meetings with each subject teacher in September to go through the syllabus, their notes, look at past papers, and discuss the main areas of weakness. It is important to do this as early as possible while knowledge is fresh from the summer exams.
We also like to identify any study-skill issues early, such as poor revision notes, poor exam technique, or bad time-management.
Alongside regular class-work, additional tasks set by the personal tutors or class teachers can include: revision of existing notes; answering topic tests under timed conditions; improving or adding to existing notes; making flash cards from notes; sitting full past papers.
