A-level resit courses


You can consider resitting A-levels if your grades turn out to be lower than you feel you could have achieved. There could be many reasons for this such as illness, stress, or distractions. We have known students who were disoriented by the jump in standard after GCSE, students who found it difficult to judge their own progress, and students with many other issues. In particular if this has happened after a good set of GCSE results, it could be a sign that the A-levels don't reflect your true academic potential. By resitting one or more subjects, you don't have to settle for disappointing grades: you can repair the damage. Grades can be improved dramatically, giving you the opportunity to do what you really want to do at university or as a career.


In most cases students resit their exams the following summer in June. Students who wish to resit sooner can do so in November.


Students on our resit courses go through a period of intensive study involving a mixture of individual and small group tuition – the exact schedule will be adpted to the needs of the individual student – and then resit their examinations in November or June. In most subjects, this will involve resitting the whole examination. In some cases it may be possible to resit selected components. The emphasis is on learning the subject material and understanding the key principles, as well as developing study skills, confidence and exam technique. Students will get plenty of practice and should expect to get through a very large number of past examination questions during the course.
