What others have to say about our private A Level courses

“We wanted to extend our sincere thanks for all your continuous support this year.

Your diligence and commitment has been critical for James and it has far exceeded our expectations. Going from a BCD to an A*A*A and being offered a place to study at UCL is an amazing achievement!

James has matured through this process and we couldn’t be prouder of his results.
Thank you again and we will be in touch soon for our two other boys!”

Mother of A level retake student, 16 August 2020

“In the quality of its staff it rates as a Titan. The teachers tend to be stars in their fields with a level of letters after their names that would make most of their profession blush.”
Good Schools Guide, 2017

All you need to know about A Level Retakes

If you are worried you haven’t achieved the A level grades you hoped for, then don’t panic. There are several options available and one of them is retaking your A levels. Although the thought might seem unappealing at first, taking the time to improve your grades may well turn out to be a worthwhile and rewarding decision. Indeed, many of our retake students end up with grades even higher than they initially expected and go on to universities that they thought were beyond their reach. You can find out all you need to know about A level retakes on the advice pages here on our website.

Can you Retake A Levels?

The first question you have to ask yourself is “where can you retake A levels?” It may be possible to stay at your current school to resit the exams in the summer or repeat the year. Alternatively, you can retake your A levels as an external candidate at many exam centres. However, if you are looking for a fresh start and want to enrol on an A level retake course, there are a number of private sixth form colleges which offer these. Westminster Tutors has a wealth of experience and our unique teaching approach means our results generally outstrip our competitors by a long measure.

Tips on Retaking A Levels

Once you have decided on an A level retake course to enrol on, you should start planning how you will improve your grades. The first thing to consider is where you underperformed in your exams. It may be that you missed parts of your previous A level course or your understanding is weak in some areas, or it may be that you need help with academic writing or exam technique. Our expert teachers will help you identify where you need to make improvements so that you avoid making the same mistakes again. It is also possible to request back your scripts from the exam board to help you analyse your previous performance. Read the rest of this article for more top tips on retaking A levels.
