We know how devastated you may feel about having missed out on the grades required to make it to your first choice university place, but think carefully before accepting second best. You’ll spend a long time with your final A level grades and a long time looking back at a university career at an institution and course that you didn’t really want. We know that your top-class university ambitions need not end here and remember that many major employers routinely sift on A level results as well as university class.
MPW has an outstanding Russell Group placement record for retake students and our experienced tutors will go the extra mile to ensure you get there.
At GCSE there are limited options for students to study for examination in English Language in November and Mathematics in January. These courses are only suitable for those students who have narrowly missed grade C at first attempt.
MPW offer both one-year GCSE courses and short retake courses. Students resitting selected units on short courses will often stick to the same exam board as they have sat before, whereas those studying on one-year courses will typically transfer to MPW’s preferred exam board and take the full suite of units that are available.
"All the staff at MPW are extremely helpful and supportive. For me, being constantly encouraged to revise and consolidate knowledge was highly effective. My Personal Tutor gave me the necessary motivation required for me to excel in my subjects and gain a place at the University of Manchester."
"MPW gave me a second chance in pursuing a career in dentistry. The small class sizes and weekly timed assessments gave me and my tutors a clear indication of my progress. The rigorous teaching schedules, structured and tailored to my personal needs, was exactly what I needed. MPW placed heavy focus on exam technique as the key to achieving the required higher grades. Being able to talk with my tutors at any time in the day was an invaluable aid. It was also clear how much the teachers took a personal interest in the development of each individual student."
"I came to MPW with very low self-confidence after under-achieving at AS level at my previous school, and have left with greater confidence about my academic ability and with a definite degree of clarity about what I hope to achieve in terms of my career. My experience at my previous school was that those with Oxbridge potential receive the most support and attention. This is not the case at MPW. I have found that it does not matter about that what the student's potential may be, each student receives the same amount of help to achieve their goals"
"Having not achieved the grades I wanted or needed in my A levels at my previous college I decided that retaking would be the best option for me. I have found the small classes at MPW to be a real asset, and that, coupled with the fantastic teaching, has certainly enabled me to grow academically. Further to this, both the academic support and the university guidance provided by the college have been exceptional."
"I joined MPW having not fulfilled my academic potential during my AS level exams at my previous school. I decided to retake my AS year at MPW and it was the best decision I ever made. The tutors at MPW have pushed me to achieve my maximum potential and have greatly improved my academic performance. The best part of studying at MPW is the weekly timed assignments as they ensure that you continuously review and revise work as well as helping you to make weekly improvements on exam technique."
"The Personal Tutors at MPW are extremely supportive and make things so much easier. They constantly check-up on you and are always available when you are feeling stressed. It's not only the Personal Tutors though. The subject tutors are amazing! It's so helpful and lovely that they care about you so much. They genuinely want you to do well and fulfil your true potential.King's College London (Medicine)"
