A Level Retakes

Westminster Tutors is a top private sixth form college. Our A level retake students’ results are superb - in 2016 the average retake improvement was 1.7 grades and 56% of our students placed at Russell Group universities. Our retake courses are unique as they are taught one-to-one and designed to focus on the specific areas where help is most needed, saving both time and money. We think we really are the best - find out what we can do for you!

Flexible choices of A level syllabuses can be made according either to students’ areas of interest or to teachers’ areas of academic expertise, and for subjects such as English, History, Politics, Art History etc students are able to select the options they most want to study. This allows our students to embark on lively and engaging programmes of study, and gives them an opportunity to make choices about their courses in the same way as they would at university.

A level students are taught three hours per subject per week if studying one-to-one, and four to five hours per subject if studying in a small group. It is also possible to complete A levels intensively over one or one and a half years, and we increase the number of taught hours and fees proportionately to arrange this.

A levels are normally studied in Years 12 and 13. Under the current reforms final A level exams will be taken at the end of the second year. However, in the first year students are also able to sit separate AS (Advanced Subsidiary) exams which cover the work completed in the first year.

Almost all British universities require three subjects at A level and some require a fourth subject for AS level. For very competitive universities or very able students, it is also possible to take four full A levels. In the light of the current reforms to A levels, the Principal will offer each student individual advice and guidance on the best combination of A level and AS choices according to his or her future university goals.
