COMMON QUESTIONS

What is the difference between AS and A level?

The A level can be split into 2 qualifications both accepted by universities. The first year is an AS level. The second year is called A2. If you complete both the AS and A2 you have completed a full A level.

 

 

How much is the course?

£150 per AS and A2

£250 if you purchase both together (a full A level)

What is included in the price?

  • A set of pre-recorded videos and online assignments released weekly.

  • Marking: Half termly tests and final full mock exam.

  • Two years of support per AS and A2. If you purchase the full A level there is 3 years of support.*

  • For tutor information (see here)

  • Support accessed via email or messaging on your student account.

  • Suggested timetables to meet your exam dates.

 

What is not included in the price?

  • Textbook (AQA Biology - Oxford - A level Year 1 and AS - 2nd Edition - Glen and Susan Toole)

  • Exams. Please arrange these with your chosen centre.

What are the entry requirements?

 

There are no official entry requirements for our course. However, an ideal student would have a recent level 7 biology, chemistry and maths at (I)GCSE. Without these you'll need to devote more time to study. We attempt to fill in (I)GCSE gaps during lessons, but there may be an element of self research if gaps are significant. 

Can I complete at my own pace? 

 

Yes, however we are currently creating the course, so A2 lessons will be released weekly. If you start now this should not affect you.

How many hours a week will I need to devote to study? 

 

This is different for everyone, but expect to devote a minimum of 5 - 6 hours of study per week.

Exam board: AQA

Can I pay by instalments? Yes. We currently work with Klarna to offer interest free instalments. Complete at checkout.

 

Please be aware that Klarna's Pay in 3 / Pay in 30 days are unregulated credit agreements. Borrowing more than you can afford or paying late may negatively impact your financial status and ability to obtain credit. 18+, UK residents only. Subject to status. Late fees may apply. Ts&Cs apply.

Final assessment: 

 

For the AS qualification there are two exam papers.

For the full A level there are three exams taken at the end of the course. You do not take the AS exams as well.

There are no coursework or practical assessments for either qualification unless you intend to take the additional practical endorsement with your exam centre.

What is the practical endorsement?

A levels are composed of written exams and an optional practical endorsement. The endorsement works on a pass or fail basis. It has no influence over your grade in the written exams.

 

Historically universities have stated students must have both written and practical exams to attend their science courses. This has slowly changed with many omitting the need for practicals from home educated / distance learners. Contact your preferred universities for their stipulations.

 

Are the exams included? 

No, you will need to organise these with your chosen centre.

Is there a trial pre-recorded lesson? 

Yes. Click here to view.

Is there a limit to the number of students that can enrol each year?

Yes. This ensures students receive the necessary support they deserve. We are working on a first come first served basis.

System requirements: Internet, ability to open video and pdf files. Ability to create pdf files to submit your mock exam. Most assignments can be completed on a computer with standard computer skills. However, it is recommended you have a printer to practice mock exams in writing to best prepare for the real exam.

*If you join on or after July 1st you will have access until June 2025 exams for AS level and A2 purchased separately.

If both (the full A level) are purchased on or after July 1st you will have access until June 2026 exams.
