7150432 IGCSE Revision Course - Biology - New Course

Tutor: Catherine Dunford

Location: Uppingham School

Uppingham School is delighted to offer intensive tutoring for students in Year 11 about to sit their IGCSE Biology this summer. The course is the ideal preparation for this very important stage in a student’s life and can be combined with other courses in IGCSE Chemistry, Physics and Maths.

The subject will be taught by a team of highly qualified and experienced teachers, including teachers from Uppingham School. Students will receive 6 hours tutored revision per day and each course will last for two days.

Tuition will include reviewing core areas of the syllabus and improving understanding of key facts in order to boost confidence and motivate each student. 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.

Class sizes will be a maximum of 10 to ensure every student is given individual attention and directed tuition.

The syllabus for both the Edexcel and CIE IGCSE course will be covered and students studying for a GCSE Biology exam are welcome on the course, since nearly all the topic areas covered are common to IGCSE and GCSE.
