Easter Revision 2022
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 30 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 but expect to be worked hard. The revision is structured for you with the emphasis in the right places and lots of practice on past papers.
Full specification A level revision courses (reformed specifications) involve studying one subject solidly for a week.
By contrast, up to two GCSE revision courses, two AS revision courses (legacy specifications), two A2 revision courses (legacy specifications) or two end-of-Year 12 revision courses (reformed 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.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book or if you have any questions and one of our Course Directors will get back to you promptly.
Why do A level Revision Courses?
Summer examinations are of pivotal importance for lower-sixth as well as upper-sixth students. For Year 12 students, regardless of whether the examinations are internal or external, their results will have considerable influence on their UCAS references, predicted grades and even sometimes the subjects that they are permitted to pursue into Year 13. For Year 13 students themselves, under the reformed specifications university and career prospects hinge on the results obtained in a single sitting at the end of a linear course.
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 now 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.

"I chose MPW on the strength of its exam results and when I came for my admissions meeting I felt like the system seemed robust and that MPW could help me achieve what I wanted to. The teaching is exactly what I needed, particularly with regards to exam practice. I found the environment at MPW very nuturing. They focus on supporting each individual to achieve what they want; at my previous school I was sometimes made to feel very small if I achieved a mediocre mark but I have never felt like that at MPW and the atmosphere is very relaxed."
"This year has been a journey for me. When I started in August my confidence was shot and I didn’t know if I was going to go to the universities I’d always dreamed of so my time at MPW has really been one of gaining confidence back and believing in myself but also having a new attitude in terms of the future. MPW has really given me back the belief that I can achieve top grades and succeed. They give you the independence to direct your own time; although there is an extra-curricular programme, there is no pressure to take on a lot of extra activities and you focus on what is important to you, which in my case was studying."
