Tuition for A-Level Retakes


Not achieving the grades you expect at A-Level can be a worrying and confusing time. Not least, as having left school often means that you no longer have the support and advice of your teachers.

We have worked with numerous students who have had to re-sit their A-Levels. We have helped those students achieve the grades they need to go on to the next stage in their lives.

If you sit public exams when you are not studying at school, you become an external candidate and this does impose certain restrictions. Not all exam boards/modules can be sat by private candidates: usually the more practical and assessed the work involved in a module is, the less likely you will be able to do it.

We are not an exam centre but work closely with several colleges in London who do accept private candidates. Furthermore we can double check if you are able to re-sit modules and advise you if you can’t. We can also help with exam registration and clear up the confusion that often results from working out module and certification codes.

Tuition can then be arranged according to the student’s schedule; many students need to work alongside their studying so need to see tutors in the evenings or weekends.  Some students will have a limited study time due to travel plans, so tuition schedules are short and intense.

Tutors enjoy supporting students doing A-Level retakes as their lessons can be focussed and tailor-made to the student. If a student’s essay writing has let them down, this can be the focal point of the tuition; or perhaps an entire module was a mystery due to the student missing school and not catching up adequately. It may also be that the student was unmotivated by their original teacher so was not inclined to work as hard as was needed. Whatever the reason, working one-on-one with a tutor, with us to back you up on all the exam admin, can be a reassuring and straightforward way to retake your A-Levels. And it may even be that you achieve a higher grade than your original predictions!
