GCSE Easter Revision courses are offered on a non-residential basis only in Mathematics, English Language and Science. The GCSE stage has always been accepted as an important point in any student's education, marking, as it does, the first public examination of a nationally recognised qualification. In recent years though, it has carried increasing weight. The requirement of at least five grades of C or better has become the standard measure of success for schools and pupils. Progression to further study at Advanced Level now often depends on attaining specified grades in particular subjects. In offering places many universities will take GCSE performance into account, especially for competitive courses where places are limited. Grade C in Maths and English is a minimum expectation for most higher education courses and is now an entry requirement for many professions. It is therefore essential that students take advantage of every available means to raise their grades, whether to meet those basic requirements or to push on to the higher levels.
Enrolling on the GCSE Easter Revision Course at Oxford Tutorial College provides the opportunity for intensive study in the key subjects of Maths, English Language and Science. The course for each subject will cover the core material found in the specifications of the main examining boards. Teaching, by experienced GCSE tutors, will take place at the college's premises in the centre of Oxford. Students will have use of the library and computer room when not being taught.
