“In the run-up to my exams I was given probably the best revision help I have ever received, and so was able to get through my exams with the minimal amount of stress. When I heard that I had achieved my A-grade in English A-level I felt that the congratulations should really go to Excel for their ongoing support and excellent teaching.”

How the GCSE ONLINE Intensive Courses Work?

(please note that the Easter Intensive course in 2022 is NOT online, but in-person at our centre in Olympia – West London. The information below is just to explain how the online version works.

 

ONLINE – GCSE programme – the online version  is a three-day programme, and below is more information

Two days of online teaching and one day of question practice by the student.

 

GCSE Day 1

Teaching of key topics, with detailed explanations of concepts and question practice. Examples and practice questions are done as part of the teaching. Work is set for the students to complete the following day. They do this at home and write by hand and must scan/take pictures of what they have done and send it in by e-mail. All teaching is done by a live video via Zoom or Skype. Six hours of teaching with one long break of 45 minutes and about three short breaks of about 10 to 15 minutes each.

GCSE Day 2

Working individually at home by answering the questions that are set. Students are expected to spend about four hours working at home and do the work in handwriting (this reflects what is required in a real exam). When the student finishes, he or she must scan/take pictures of the work they have completed and send it in by e-mail or download it onto our portal.

GCSE Day 3

A recap of work covered on Day 1 and also feedback on the questions the students have done at home on Day 2. After that, the same format as in Day 1 – teaching of key topics, with detailed explanation of concepts and question practice. Like Day 1, examples and practice questions are done as part of the teaching. All teaching is done by a live video via Zoom or Skype. Six hours of teaching with one long break of 45 minutes and about three short breaks of about 10 to 15 minutes each.
