What happens if schools are forced to close again, will my Live Easter Revision Courses take place?chevron_right
Should schools be closed during our Easter Revision Courses, students will be provided with the online version of their Easter Revision Courses in place of their classroom-based courses. This is to ensure that no matter what happens, students will receive tuition. When schools closed during our Christmas Revision Courses, all students had received livestreams of their remaining classes ensuring no tuition was missed.

Do I need the notes to get value from the On-Demand Easter Revision Courses?chevron_right
Yes, absolutely. Students who attempt to watch the On-Demand Easter Revision Courses without the notes will not get value from these courses as our teachers constantly refer to the notes constantly throughout the video lessons. As such, we advise all students to follow classes with the notes in front of them.
If I take the On-Demand Easter Revision Courses, how and when do I get my notes?chevron_right
Please allow 3 working days to receive your notes. There may be a scenario where you are granted access to our online Easter Revision Courses prior to the notes arriving but we advise students to wait until they have the notes before commencing watching the online video lessons.
