Tutor: Luke Bartlett
Location: Uppingham School
Residential and non-residential option for 2 subjects
Uppingham is delighted to offer 5 days intensive tutoring for students about to sit their IGCSE exams in Biology, Chemistry, Physics or Maths.
The ideal preparation for this important stage in every student’s life, subjects will be taught by a team of highly qualified and experienced teachers, many of whom teach at Uppingham School.
Students will receive 6 hours tutored revision per day across two separate subjects. This will include reviewing core areas of the syllabus and improving understanding of key facts in order to boost confidence and motivate each student. Class sizes will be a maximum of 10 to ensure that every student is given individual attention and directed tuition. Tutors will recommend different revision techniques, and students will practise past papers under exam conditions. They will be given additional set work each evening to prepare for the following day.
Subjects and Exam Boards
Tuition will be offered for IGCSE Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths. The syllabus for both Edexcel and CIE IGCSE courses will be covered. Students studying for GCSE exams in any of these subjects are welcome on the course, since nearly all the topic areas covered are common to IGCSE and GCSE, but only IGCSE past questions will be used as examples and in testing.
Two past papers and model answers will be provided at the end of the course, with other revision materials provided by the tutor.
Residential students will arrive on the evening of Saturday 8thApril between 6.30 pm - 7.30 pm.
Non-residential students will arrive on Sunday morning for a 9.15 am start.
Students should choose TWO subjects so that they are studying in both the mornings and afternoons.Three hours of tuition each day for five days will be offered in the morning for Subject 1 and the afternoon for Subject 2. For students wishing to study 1 subject only, please register on our half day revision course.
Residential students will have an opportunity to take part in sporting activities at Uppingham School Sports Centre at the end of each day and there will be supervised study time each evening after dinner in the boarding houses.
