Cambridge - Easter Revision Courses

MPW Cambridge has been running Easter Revision courses for over 25 years. These courses build understanding and confidence by providing intensive revision of core topics, daily examination practice and help with study and revision skills.

Our tutors are highly-qualified graduates whose experience at MPW has trained them to be particularly adept at building students’ confidence quickly and efficiently. Many are GCSE and A level examiners and are therefore attuned to the requirements and approaches of the various examination boards.

Easter students are taught in small groups (maximum of 9 students). Students must expect to be worked hard and tested regularly during their courses.

Fully-supervised, full-board accommodation is available on selected weeks for students who are unable to commute daily. Please contact us for more information on accommodation options.

Why do A level Revision Courses?

Summer examinations are of pivotal importance for lower sixth as well as upper-sixth students. For lower-sixth students, regardless of whether the examinations are internal or external, their results will have considerable influence on their UCAS references and predicted grades. For upper-sixth students, their results will determine their university and career prospects. For those who are studying certain legacy syllabuses, summer 2017 will be of even greater significance than usual as it will be absolutely the last opportunity they have to sit the examinations.

Why do GCSE Easter Revision Courses?

GCSE results have always been an important milestone but their significance today is greater than ever. Government led reforms mean that the examinations are now more challenging. Schools and colleges are also raising their requirements for sixth-form entry. Furthermore, with A levels becoming linear, university tutors are paying much closer attention to applicants’ GCSE grades. Not surprisingly, students are keen to ensure that their exam preparations are as comprehensive and streamlined as possible during the final few weeks before their examinations begin.
