A Level retakes and resits are a daunting prospect, with schools sometimes unable to provide the direct support necessary for focused resit revision alongside teaching a new module. The idea of having to repeat exams can cause frustration, irritation and worry. It’s important every student realises they do not have to cope by themselves when it comes to exam resits.
Justin Craig’s A Level revision courses will get students well-prepared for their A Level retakes, arming them with the knowledge they need to succeed this time round.
We offer revision courses for virtually all A Level subjects. Ideally suited to students facing A Level resits, they provide structured revision time in a friendly, distraction free, small group
Courses take place at our revision centres around the country. We operate like this in order to remove students from their own surroundings, as it’s much easier for them to concentrate on their resits and, therefore, get more work done.
Our aim is to assist both parents and students with the stresses that A Level retakes can involve, helping to relieve the anxiety that can be associated with retakes.
Small Group Revision with Expert Tutors
All our exam revision courses are led by expert tutors, who excel in their respective fields of knowledge. As well as knowing about the relevant subject, they have an excellent understanding of the exam syllabuses and what students doing A Level retakes will need to cope with.
Many of our tutors are examiners, which means they can provide an unparalleled insight into how to approach exam papers and what to do to maximise marks. It’s exactly what
you need to cope with A Level exam resits.
For students preparing to resit exams, our A Level revision courses offer several advantages over traditional tutoring or revising alone. Each revision course involves a small group (around
six on average) – small enough to be friendly, but big enough to share ideas.
We always ask students which areas they’d like their course to cover, so we can address the areas that caused problems the first time round. And as confidence can be an issue for anyone having to do A-Level retakes, our tutors put time and effort into helping to develop students’ self-belief and exam technique.
Is it too late to retake A Level exams?
Though summer 2020 A Level Exams were cancelled, the government is looking at proposed arrangements for an additional GCSE, AS and A level exam series to take place in autumn 2020. This also suggests that A Level resits and retakes should be available later in the same year.
While you have to wait a year to retake your selected A Level exam, it gives you time to establish where you need to improve. You must retake the entire exam in these circumstances, however if coursework is involved, you’re not required to start from scratch.
The old form of AS and A2 Level exams of the previous system is where retakes can get more complicated. It is always worth emailing us with your exact requirements, as different exam boards vary from subject to subject and which years these were taken. From here we will assist you in the direction you need for your A Level resits.
We aren’t just about delivering courses for A Level exam resits either. We supply students and parents a range of free guides, tips and resources, including our student portal, assisting every step of the way towards the exam resit itself.
Confirm if it’s factually correct.
A Level Retakes and Resits School Support
Justin Craig are also able to support schools through our school specific revision courses. We know that resources can be stretched if you are attempting to support students with retakes, as well as those about to undertake A Level exams for the first time. Our school-specific revision courses are designed to compliment existing knowledge and relieve the pressure from teachers and staff.
