Cambridge- Retake Courses
Here you can find out about the retake courses offered by MPW in Cambridge.
A Level Retakes
There have been no domestic January sittings permitted since January 2013 at AS or A2. Students who might have previously spent the Autumn term improving just one or two units in a given subject prior to examination in January must now defer the examination to June (with the option of top-up revision either at Easter or the beginning of the Summer term) or take the revision course itself from January to June. There may often be an interaction, which should be discussed fully at interview, between the UCAS re-application cycle and the decision on retake course duration.
To accommodate this change, MPW now offers four different options for short retake courses, as well as full year retake courses for students who have fallen substantially short of their target grades.
Winter retake courses at GCSE are a dying breed. The exam boards offer very few subjects these days. At MPW Cambridge we now only offer full-year GCSE courses.
Students who have previously sat GCSE exams will typically transfer to MPW’s preferred exam board and take the full suite of units that are available.
