Biology A Level Easter Revision Course – Online

Course Information

Course Description

Our online Biology A Level Easter crash courses take place over four days. Designed to prepare Year 13 students for their final exams, they feature classes taught by experienced, professional teachers dedicated to helping students reach their full academic potential.

During the course, students will revisit key sections of the syllabus, strengthening their understanding of biology and enabling them to identify and polish any areas not yet fully understood. Attention will also be given to improving students’ exam technique, ensuring they have the skills to maximise their marks when they come to sit their papers.

Alongside online classes, students will receive additional support in the form of our tailor-made revision materials. Professionally printed and bound, these high-quality resources have been designed to make revision easy and digestible, both during and after the course.

Our Easter crash courses are a great way to take revision up a notch, giving students the knowledge, skills and confidence to succeed in their summer exams.

Suitable for:

  • Year 13 students
  • Students wanting to revise content
  • Students looking to improve exam technique
  • Year 12 students
  • Students who are predicted D or below

If you need help deciding if you will benefit from this course you can contact us. Alternatively, you may prefer to book 1-2-1 tuition instead.

Owen B.

Owen B.

Owen achieved his BSc in Zoology from Newcastle University and today teaches AQA A Level Biology at a sixth-form college in West Yorkshire. He began teaching the AQA specification in 2016, which has given him a thorough knowledge of the course content and exam papers. As such, many of his students have achieved fantastic results in their exams.

Owen focuses heavily on fundamental biological principles, helping students develop a thorough understanding that enables them to apply that knowledge to unfamiliar concepts. Whether he’s teaching in a classroom or tutoring privately, his engaging and motivational teaching style ensures students feel involved and supported at every stage.

Teresa B.

Teresa B.

Teresa, also known as Tre, holds a BSc in Biomolecular Science, an MSc in Biomedical Basis of Disease, and a PGCE in Secondary Science. She’s taught biology in various settings since 2007, including online classes and a top ten-rated sixth-form college in the Midlands.

As well as teaching biology and biology-adjacent subjects, Teresa mentors other teachers in IT and works as an A Level Biology examiner for two different exam boards. The latter has given her a thorough insight into today’s papers, allowing her to build teaching strategies that provide students with the knowledge, application skills and confidence to ace their exams.

If you would like 1-2-1 tuition with Tre you can find her profile on our tuition platform.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do your online A Level Biology revision courses work?

Our online revision courses take place within Google Classroom, keeping everything organised in one convenient hub. From here, you’ll be able to access our bespoke course resources and join the live lessons which take place on Google Meet.

Students can interact with the teacher using their microphone or the chat feature.

All sessions are recorded. The lesson recordings are uploaded after each day, allowing you to watch them back for a recap whenever you like.

When will I receive the Google Classroom link for my online revision course?

You should receive your Google Classroom link via email the day before your course starts. Sometimes these emails go to the junk folder so check there before contacting us if you haven’t received it.

When will I receive my revision course handouts?

You will receive physical copies of the handouts 3-5 days before the start of your online course, as long as you book with us before the printing deadline. You can find the printing deadline in the course summary box on each booking page.

Please note: we can only send printed handouts to students in the UK. 

What if my exam board isn’t listed?

If you can’t see your exam board then we are afraid we aren’t running a course for it. However, this doesn’t mean that one of our courses won’t be useful for you. Contact us to see which course is more closely aligned with your exam board.
