A Level Maths Easter Revision Course

Easter Revision Courses for A Level Maths and iGCSE Maths

The Easter revision courses described below run during the school Easter holidays and aim to give students everything they need to give them the best chance of success in their studies. Please read below for much more detailed information about how the courses are structured and what content is covered.

Each course comes with free access to The Ultimate Study Tool For A Level Maths

A Level Maths 3-Day Easter Revision Course

(at the University of Surrey)

Each course comes with free access to The Ultimate Study Tool For A Level Maths

This course is aimed at students about to take their A-Level maths final exams. This differs slightly from the 4-day full syllabus course in that the topics covered in the 3-day course are predominantly from the material taught in Year 2 of the A Level Maths course (see the expanding menus below for details). These happen to be the topics students tend to struggle with most. Given that these topics have likely only recently been taught, this means students have had less time to learn/revise the content.

The purpose of the course is to fill gaps in knowledge and really kick-start the intense revision process, giving students the understanding, the motivation and the materials they need to embark upon a productive and successful revision regime.

    Really great teaching and a very organised course structure, we also went away with revision … More packs for ongoing work with past papers, exam questions etc as well as access to John’s online material. Very intensive course but I found that helpful!! thankyou for your hard work in putting this together.
  • Avatar rosy dickinson ★★★★★
    Professional, knowledgeable and an excellent teacher – you want results, go to John – couldn't … More recommend him highly enough!
  • Avatar Ben Brown ★★★★★
    Did all of these before my maths A levels and helped me achieve an A* in maths and A in further … More maths. They also really took the pressure of in terms of revision as you can get the majority of it done in one day freeing up lots of time for other subjects, making the overall exam period much more manageable and structured. The tutors were much better than my maths teachers at school and their fresh insight really improved understanding. They were also really flexible and able to allocate time to target problem areas based on individual needs. Could not recommend more.

Why an Easter revision course? 

By the time the Easter holidays arrive, the revision phase of the learning process should be well underway. But even this late in the academic year, students often have difficulty in knowing how and what to revise, and how to plug the gaps in knowledge that revision uncovers. Consequently, the three main aims of this course are to help students to:

  1. Learn how to revise
  2. Learn what to revise
  3. Fill gaps in and consolidate content knowledge

This will be done with a major emphasis on tackling the content taught in Year 2 of the A Level Maths course. These tend to make up the more challenging exam questions in the A Level Maths course. Particular attention will be paid to:

  • Exam technique
  • Targeting the marks (i.e. writing what the examiners want to see)
  • What to do when presented with an unfamiliar question (i.e. how not to panic)

How does the course work?

The course will take place over three days during the school Easter holidays at the University of Surrey, Guildford, providing a studious and focused atmosphere in which productivity can flourish.

As mentioned previously, the major focus of the course will be on the Year 2 A Level Maths content. In order to revise the Year 1 content, students will be given free access to The Ultimate Study Tool for A-Level Maths which contains hundreds of hours of lesson videos and associated worksheets and learning materials.

Who delivers these courses?

The courses will be delivered by myself, John Armstrong, the creator of ALevelMathsRevision.com and some carefully selected and trusted colleagues. I am a qualified teacher of Maths with many years of experience working in a sixth form college. I have an extensive and in-depth knowledge of the A Level Maths and Further Maths specifications across all exam boards. I graduated in 2007 from the University of York with a Distinction in MSc. Mathematics with Modern Applications having previously completed an undergraduate BSc in Mathematics and Computer Science. Please visit my YouTube Channel to see examples of my teaching. 

How do I know how good your courses are?

A very good question! These courses have been running for many years now. Just check the “testimonials” section above to see the opinions of students who have been on the course in previous years.

Why is this different to other revision courses?

I firmly believe that in order to get the best out of students, you need to do far more than simply “tell them how to do it”. My courses work on developing the mathematical thought process, adopting a radically different approach than simply “lecturing” students to success. A combination of many years experience of delivering A Level Maths in schools and exam board marking experience, students can ask about any problems they encounter as they occur means our approach is very different to those of other providers.

Is there a limit on group sizes?

Yes. In order to ensure that students are able to make the most of the revision course, we have limited the group size to 20. The teacher:student ratio is guaranteed to be at least 1 teacher per 10 students, allowing for questions to be asked an help to be given to individual students on the topics they are struggling with.

How much do your courses cost?

Click the “Dates/Prices” section below for details on price.

What times do the courses run from/until?

Courses run from 9.00am to 4.30pm with regular breaks throughout the day. Students will receive a total of at least 6 hours tuition per day.

How is the course structured?

The course will be divided into topic-specific sections with regular breaks throughout the day to keep students engaged and fresh.

Which exam boards does the course apply to?

The course applies to all four of the main specifications sat in England: Edexcel, OCR, OCR-MEI and AQA. When the A Level Maths specification was reformed in 2017, one of the main requirements was for the exam boards to align in the content they teach. Whilst there are some very minor differences in the Statistics content which will be made clear on the day, the Pure and Mechanics content is aligned across all exam boards, making this course applicable whichever of the four syllabuses you study.

Specific exam technique points will be given with each and every example covered, ensuring that students not only learn content, but also learn how to apply it to real-life exam situations.

The content of the course will be predominantly from that taught in Year 2 of the A Level Maths course and will include:

Pure Maths

  • Proof by Contradiction
  • Functions (Domain, Range, Inverse and Modulus)
  • Sequences (Arithmetic, Geometric and Binomial Expansion)
  • Advanced Trigonometry
  • Differentiation techniques
  • Integration Techniques
  • Parametric Equations
  • Numerical Methods

Statistics

  • Conditional Probability
  • The Normal Distribution
  • Hypothesis Tests for Mean and PMCC

Mechanics

  • Vectors in Mechanics
  • Projectiles
  • Forces and friction on a slope
  • Moments

    At the beginning of Year 12 I was struggling with maths a lot, but after John started tutoring … More me my confidence increased massively as well as my overall understanding of the content. I also really appreciated being able to ask John for help at any time throughout the week with maths questions providing even more support. This Easter, I went to John’s A-level revision course and it was so helpful and recapped all of the A-level content , leaving me feeling a lot more prepared for my maths exams.
  • Avatar Jess E ★★★★★
    John is an amazing tutor. I did the Easter course at York University with him for a week and … More learnt so much that I decided to have 8 one to one tutor sessions with him on line. These work really well with an iPad and stylus. John replies to all your questions during the week too!
  • Avatar Sophie Grogan ★★★★★
    Highly recommend these to anyone looking to improve their grade. The tutor’s knowledge and … More enthusiasm stretches much further than teachers at school. Definitely worth doing as they cover the majority of the course with quality teaching.

Students have commented after past courses that the intensity of the four-day experience, whilst tiring, gave insight into how it was possible to remain productive for long periods of time. This is an experience that can be learnt from and applied across all subjects, increasing productivity at a crucial time of the academic year.

How does the course work?

The course will take place over four days during the school Easter holidays at the University of York, creating a studious and focused atmosphere in which productivity can flourish.

As mentioned previously, the major focus of the course will be on exam question revision across the entirety of the A Level Maths syllabus. A recap of every element of the syllabus will be presented to the students by experienced teachers of A Level Maths. Time will then be spent allowing students to practise questions on individual topics and teachers will circulate the room, helping students with whatever problems they have.
