Easter Revision

Helping Students Prepare For Their A-Level And GCSE Examinations

At Lansdowne College many A ­Level and GCSE students realise their full potential and achieve academic success on our Easter Revision courses.

In our experience, students often find themselves unaware of exactly what the examiners are looking for and subsequently unsure of what makes an A* grade answer. Our Easter Revision courses provide a methodical approach to revision which, in turn, gives students the motivation and support they need in their summer examinations.

The Objectives

These courses are designed to improve students’ performance by focusing on five key aspects of exam preparation:

● Consolidating knowledge and understanding

● Planning a successful approach to revision

● Developing and sustaining confidence

● Employing effective examination technique

● Working out a personal revision programme for the run­ up to the exams

All Easter Revision students at our London sixth form college receive a full set of specimen examination papers with accompanying model answers. Throughout the course students are set examination questions. These questions are subsequently marked with tutor commentary on how improvements can be made. Each course culminates in an examination session.

Study Options

Students can study an individual AS, A2 or GCSE subject intensively for 18 hours per week during either the mornings or afternoons. Students wanting to combine two subjects or revise for a full A­-Level (AS and A2) can study for 36 hours per week during both the mornings and afternoons.
