Open for bookings: Easter Revision 2019   

Please email cambridgeeaster@mpw.ac.uk and a member of our Easter Revision team will get back to you promptly.

MPW has been running successful Easter Revision courses for over 25 years. Our courses focus on the following aspects which are essential for students’ confidence and good academic performance:

  • Intensive revision of core topics and examination practice
  • Emphasis on understanding rather than learning
  • Identification of the most common types of exam question set on each topic
  • Question-answering techniques and essay-writing skills
  • Study and revision skills
  • Exam board-specificity

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 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. 

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 all A levels now being assessed in a linear fashion, 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.

Testimonials

We are often asked how much difference our courses can make. This is difficult to quantify, but every year we receive many letters, emails and telephone calls from students who attended revision courses and went on to achieve excellent exam grades and secure places at top universities. A selection of comments from students and parents/guardians follows:

Parents say...

"I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for the excellently run GCSE revision sessions that my son attended. He achieved a lot and the lessons in all subjects have really helped him consolidate his knowledge. We would definitely recommend MPW and he will be keen to join you for a similar A level programme."

a parent of an English, Maths, Chemistry and Physics student, Easter Revision 2018

 "My daughter says that the teacher was really excellent. She felt the course was thoroughly worth it and it exceeded her expectations. She not only enjoyed it and felt she learnt a lot, she also said to me that she was given a new perspective on and an increased interest in the subject, coupled with finding a better and more productive way of learning and revising. I would like to pass on my thanks to the teacher too."

a parent of a Biology student, Easter Revision 2018

 "Just to say how much my son enjoyed his time at MPW. It seems to have made a difference to his understanding of his subjects. It has made revision much more fun than sitting on his own."

a parent of a French, Maths and Physics student, Easter Revision 2017

"Just a quick note to say what a success the two weeks of revision were for my daughter. Both her tutors were excellent and she has learnt so much and is now much more confident in the subject and understands the work she has to do. We will definitely recommend you to everyone!"
