Biology A-level Refresher Classes

These online courses are designed to give students who are going into Year 13 the boost they need to go into their final A-level year with confidence. Tutors will guide students through all the content they should have covered in Year 12, refreshing knowledge and filling in any gaps from teaching they may have missed due to school closures. Classes are separated by exam board and are spread over three days to give students time to go over content in depth. Once topics have been covered, tutors will go through past paper questions to consolidate knowledge and practice exam technique. Skills learnt on the course can be used by students once back at school to help boost grades.

Our courses are led by subject specialist tutors who excel in their teaching of subject content. Learners are supported beyond the course too as we provide resources; these include course notes, guides to practicals and relevant past-paper questions. Students should leave the course feeling confident and prepared for Year 13.
