London - Easter Revision Courses
For A level and GCSE students Easter revision is one of the most important dates in the calendar.
We’ve been running Easter Revision courses for more than 25 years. Over 1,500 students now attend MPW Easter Revision courses each year.
Easter Revision courses are a great way of getting the bulk of your revision done early. The revision is structured for you with the emphasis in the right places and lots of practice on past papers.
Expect to be worked hard during our Easter Revision courses. Full specification A level revision courses (reformed specifications) involve studying one subject solidly for a week. Up to two GCSE revision courses, two AS revision courses (legacy specifications) or two A2 revision courses (legacy specifications) may be studied each week. At MPW A level Easter Revision courses are for a particular board and specification, so you’re in groups where everyone is studying exactly the same specification. That might influence the Easter Revision courses that you choose to take with us.
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. As the A level system is now fully reformed, Summer 2018 will be of even greater significance than usual as it will be the first appearance of some of the new reformed, full A level examinations, alongside the second examination of the Phase One subjects. For those who are studying certain legacy syllabuses, this may well be the last opportunity 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.
Mander Portman Woodward (MPW), the independent sixth form college, has long enjoyed quasi-legendary status among the capital’s “crammers”.
The well-established brand, with branches in London, Birmingham and Cambridge, supplies top tutoring and learning over three weeks in April.
