Chemistry AS Level May Half-term Revision Course – Online

Course Information

Course Description

Our AS Level Chemistry recap courses are perfect for students preparing for their end-of-year assessments or to round up Year 12. To ensure students only learn what they need to for their specification we offer different classes tailored to specific exam boards – all of which are taught by our professional team of highly experienced tutors.

During the course, students will revisit the key topics they learned in Year 12, primarily focusing on exam technique. Using past paper questions, they’ll learn how to formulate answers that maximise their marks and how to avoid the common mistakes that will cost them. As students work through each topic, they’ll have the chance to identify and fill in any gaps in their understanding while solidifying their existing knowledge along the way.

Not only is this course a fantastic way to prepare students for their exams, but it’ll also get them feeling confident, positive and ready to take on Year 13.

Suitable for:

  • Year 12 students
  • Students preparing for summer assessments or looking to review content before year 13
  • Students struggling with content (we suggest booking our summer courses instead as content is covered in more depth and over more days)
  • Students working at a grade 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.
