Science GCSE Christmas Revision Course – Online

Course Information

Course Description

This two day course is designed to prepare the students for their January mock exams. The course will cover all three sciences, focusing on the most challenging topics and questions for each subject. Often students struggle with the same types of questions for each science such as titration calculations for Chemistry and long-answer questions for Biology. Time will be spent correcting misconceptions and practicing exam questions. Moreover, time will be spent working on effective study techniques so students learn the most efficient and productive way to revise for exams.

Learners are supported beyond the course through the provision of high-quality, comprehensive and original material including notes, guides and question booklets. These resources have been specially designed and created to supplement the learning experience.

Suitable for:

  • Year 11 students
  • Students looking to improve exam technique in preparation for their January mock exams
  • Year 10 students
  • Foundation tier students

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.
