Online Biology A-level Easter Crash Course

The courses are designed to prepare the students for the summer exams. Classes are separated by exam board and are taught by experienced, professional tutors. Your course tutor will teach a topic before going through past paper questions to consolidate learning and practice exam technique. Your tutor will use this past paper practice to give tips about how to get the most marks and the best approach to answering questions. Any weaknesses can be identified and worked on before moving on to the next topic.

Our courses cover the whole specification which means they’re a great way to kick start revision or can be used to identify and fill in any gaps in knowledge. You should leave the course feeling confident and prepared for your exams.

Structure of the Days

Classes are from 9.30am to 4.30pm. Registration starts from 9.15am.
