Combined Science GCSE Easter Revision Classes – London

Our separate two day science courses cover all the topics required for Combined Science. If you feel you needed an extra confidence boost in only one or two subjects you can book these courses individually. Alternatively, we have a 6 day bundle which covers the whole Combined Science specification.
Our experienced tutors will guide students through all the key aspects of the AQA Higher Tier specification (9-1) before using past paper questions to help improve exam technique. Full of tips and tricks to attain top marks, this course will leave students feeling confident and prepared going into their exams.
