Biology A Level Summer Revision Course – Online

Course Information

Course Description

Our online Biology summer refresher courses are designed to give soon-to-be Year 13 students a comprehensive recap ahead of the new academic year.

During the three-day course, our experienced teachers will walk students through everything covered in Year 12, ensuring they have a solid knowledge and understanding of the key topics presented so far. Past paper questions will be used throughout teaching to consolidate knowledge and practice exam technique. Skills learnt on the course can be used by students once back at school to help boost grades.

In addition to our online classes, students joining us will receive a comprehensive package of original, high-quality revision materials. These professionally printed guides and question booklets have been designed to make revision as digestible as possible, both during and after the course.

Helping to develop the confidence and skills to succeed, our refresher courses are an excellent way to prepare students for the final year of their A Levels.

Suitable for:

  • Students entering year 13
  • Students looking to review year 12 subject knowledge, ready to go back to school
  • Students going into year 12
  • Students wanting to focus purely on exam technique

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.

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.
