Our A level tutors aim to foster a deep understanding of all concepts taught at A level. This is because rote memorization is insufficient if looking to achieve top grades at this level. Careful mastery of exam technique, tailored attentively to each exam board, is crucial. This includes an appreciation of timing, definitions, and specific nuances within mark schemes. With our expert A level tutors providing a comprehensive perspective on each specification, JTC Education can help students slowly unravel the complexity of the A level curriculum.
At JTC Education, we provide comprehensive academic support across multiple academic subjects and exam boards at A level. Our expert A level tutors are proficient in English Literature, English Language, Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, History, Economics, Computer Science, Geography, and various Modern Foreign Languages.
A level students find online learning to be comparatively quicker and more effective when compared with in-person tuition. Many find that due to having carried out tutoring online they are subsequently better prepared for the remote nature of many university courses and jobs later in life.
JTC Education is able to provide additional support in demanding entrance exams such as STEP, PAT, TMUA and other exams. We also offer pre-university courses to help bridge the gap between university and A level. This support has helped many students hit the ground running when taking up this next step.
Yes, A levels are a significant step up in difficulty when compared with GCSEs. Indeed, a student that achieves a level 9 in a GCSE subject can typically find themselves being graded anywhere between a D and an A* without professional support. Many GCSE exams can be studied by rote, through memorisation of key mark scheme points, whereas A levels require a deeper understanding and appreciation of the subjects. However, students should not be alarmed if finding it difficult at first and scoring lower grades than at GCS as with professional tutoring assistance students are often encouraged back on to the right track.
Professional tutors can help with A level exam preparation in a number of ways. Firstly, they may help you understand the A level content more deeply, which is crucial when faced with curveball questions which are dissimilar to what you have seen in past papers. Secondly, they can help guide you on where to focus your attention. Finally, they can help dissect key assessment objectives and generalise approaches to different questions. With the assistance of a professional A level tutor, many students jump multiple grade boundaries.
You can take as many A levels as you wish to or your school allows. However, top universities will typically request a minimum of 3 A levels as their minimum entrance requirement, which is why this is the amount of A levels most schools will advise a student to take.
