English classes for GCSE and A level exams

We’re specialists in online exam tuition across all exam boards in England and Wales including AQA, Edexcel, Cambridge, WJEC, Eduqas and IB. Our English GCSE, IGCSE and A level students consistently achieve grades 9-7 for GCSE, A*-B for A Level and get into their top choice universities including Kings College, UCL, Bath, Exeter, Cardiff, Bristol and Reading. Our undergraduate students achieve 1st and 2:1 results, awarded for assessments and their final degree results.

Our English exam tuition classes focus on the syllabus and requirements of that particular exam or University board. Our tutors have a sound knowledge of the requirements of the syllabus, module guidelines and grade boundaries. Examinations and assessments are susceptible to changing frameworks and so parents and pupils will have peace of mind that we are up to date with these changes. We have an extensive library of past examination papers, mark schemes, transcripts, listening exams and assessment resources for students, which can be used well before the run-up to exams to maximise students’ performance.

Our classes are designed to help students fill in any knowledge gaps, revise and apply proven exam techniques and improve their overall confidence and be exam ready.
