Maths AS Level May Half-term Revision Course – Online

Course Information

Course Description

Our AS Level Maths recap courses are an excellent choice for those gearing up for their end-of-year assessments or to consolidate Year 12. We offer one-day courses for statistics and mechanics and a two-day course for pure. The topics taught are universal to all exam boards, so the courses are suitable for all students. Practice questions will be taken from Edexcel past papers. You can get an idea of how Edexcel questions are worded by looking through some papers here.

During this exam technique-focused course, our professional tutors will guide students through the content they studied in Year 12. Working topic by topic, they’ll study past paper questions to learn how to maximise their marks on exam day – and just as importantly – how to avoid the common pitfalls that could cost them their target grade. Along the way, our tutors will help students identify and fill in any gaps in their understanding, strengthening their overall maths skills.

In addition to giving students the confidence to succeed in their exams, this course provides an excellent round-up of Year 12 ahead of the new academic year.

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.

Our Tutors

At PMT Courses we work with a talented team of professional teachers and tutors, many of whom have worked at some of the best-rated schools in the UK. We’ve recruited them not only for their exceptional academic credentials but also for their innovative teaching styles, infectious enthusiasm, and wealth of experience too.

Rachel P.

Rachel P.

Rachel has taught maths to KS3-5 students for an impressive 11 years, working across a number of schools in the North East. She has a real passion for her subject and her infectious enthusiasm shines through in every lesson she teaches.

Alongside her regular teaching job, Rachel lectures Decision Mathematics at Newcastle University. She also leads the Teach First maths course at Northumbria University – helping to inspire the next generation of maths teachers as they embark on their journey into the teaching world.

Paul W.

Paul W.

Paul attended Leeds University, where he gained a first class degree in Maths, followed by a master’s in Pure Mathematics. After taking his PGCE at Nottingham University (in which he also achieved a first), he taught at a secondary school for four years before becoming head of maths in a sixth-form college. Today his teaching experience spans a whopping 38 years.

Paul believes that teaching is what he was made for and despite taking formal retirement, education is still very much his passion. After retiring, he continued working, training new teachers, before becoming an online tutor during the Covid-19 pandemic. These days he tutors both individuals and small classes, using his vast wealth of knowledge and experience to help his students succeed. When he’s not teaching, Paul chairs a theological discussion group for adults and likes to try his hand at DIY (to varying degrees of success).
