If students haven’t received the A level results they were hoping for, it is bound to be very disappointing – but our experience of helping students in this position at Brampton College shows that it is far from the end of the world. For some students, a further year also offers the opportunity to reassess their options and possibly take up a new subject intensively over a year. We have a great deal of experience advising our students on the best course for them, after carefully assessing their individual situation. The vast majority of our A level retake students are extremely successful, achieving top grades and going on to study their first choice of subject at university.
Essentially this course covers the whole syllabus of a subject over a one year period rather than two. This can be a challenging prospect because it requires intensive teaching with fast learning and a determined attitude. However, the teachers at Brampton have a superb level of expertise and are happy to successfully guide the students through what can be seen as a difficult process. They give a great deal of attention to individual students’ needs with a thorough revision programme and weekly examination practice. Specialised support also helps to ensure our retake students’ university applications are as effective as possible.
“We will be forever grateful to Brampton College for helping our son to turn things around, achieve great results and feel really good about himself.” Parent of retake student 2014
