Thinking of Going to University?

A Levels are assessed primarily through examinations, and in some cases, coursework and/or practicals too, which are then combined to give a final grade. If you are planning to go on to higher education, this grade can then be translated into Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) points. You will be awarded up to 56 points per A Level which can then be added together to reach the total number of UCAS points required by your chosen university.

To help you achieve the best possible grade, our courses include carefully-devised learning activities, as well as a number of tutor-marked assignments, so you get detailed feedback to help you fine-tune your technique before you take the exam. Your assignments can also help your personal tutor to provide you with a predicted grade, where this is required for your university application.
