Do I need the GCSE in order to take the A Level?
Usually a GCSE pass is not required to sit the A-level but students without a GCSE pass (or those with a low pass) are advised to arrange some focused tuition through us to consolidate the key GCSE skills required. Many students continue with the tuition throughout their A-level studies. Please call us on 0161 839 9817 for the options available.
I wish to take some GCSE/IGCSE qualifications. Which would you recommend?
We cannot recommend specific qualifications although we can advise on the options available. The final decision remains with the student but please remember that access to further and higher education and employment are often dependant on securing specific qualifications most notably passes at GCSE in English and Maths. Please call us on 0161 839 9817 to discuss the examination and tuition options available.
