Length of Course

8 hour seminars or 4 hour seminars (where advertised)


9am to 6pm daily

The texts offered are selected on the basis of popularity and difficulty from those set by all three examination boards. Text seminars will be one day in length. Such intense immersion over the course of the day encourages full ownership of the texts studied. The morning session will be devoted to developing an understanding of the respective text’s key themes, putting the text in its historical context and providing character studies. The afternoon session will include the careful analysis of exam papers, their formats and their rubric. Attention will be paid to the
context options, where appropriate, and the seminars will conclude with the planning out of answers to past and future examination questions.
