Biology GCSE Easter Crash Course

These two day-courses are designed to help students prepare for the summer exams. Our tutors will review key sections of the syllabus, enabling students to identify and fill in any gaps in their knowledge and strengthen their understanding of the syllabus.  Our tutors will use past paper questions throughout their teaching to consolidate knowledge and demonstrate how to apply it to exam questions, in order to consistently score top marks. Students will leave the course with renewed confidence and a sense of mastery of the course content.

Learners are provided with high-quality, comprehensive and original material including notes, guides and question booklets. These resources have been specially created to supplement the learning experience and support students beyond the course.
