IGCSE Preparation Courses

Formerly known as Ordinary (“O”) Levels, the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) or the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is the main qualification for British students when they complete their compulsory period of secondary education at the age of 16. The IGCSE is generally regarded as being more suitable for international students while most UK nationals take then GCSE.
Students typically study up to 9 (I)GCSE subjects over 2 academic years or up to 6 (I)GCSE subjects over 3-4 terms with a full timetable each week. Upon successful completion of their (I)GCSE courses, students generally proceed to an IB, A Level or University Foundation Course to qualify for entry to university. (I)GCSE examinations are set according to nationally agreed criteria that provide guidance on syllabus content. A national quality assurance framework in the UK ensures that (I)GCSE standards are consistent between the various awarding bodies and syllabuses from year to year.
GK Consultants is happy to provide specialist tutoring in different (I)GCSE subjects. GK Consultants tutors work continuously to ensure their (I)GCSE students receive the best tuition available and show the best academic performance of which they are capable. The (I)GCSE subjects they teach include Combined Sciences, Art, Biology, Business, Chemistry, Physics, Economics, Mathematics, French, History, Geography, Psychology, English, Sociology, Law & Computing / IT. Other subjects may be available on request – please contact GK Consultants for further details.
Academic English support is also available at GK Consultants for international students whose first language is other than English. Students normally require IELTS 4.5 or TOEFL 450 or an equivalent pass grade in another Intermediate level EFL examination to be able to succeed at (I)GCSE.

GCE A Level Preparation Courses

GCE Advanced (‘A’) Level examinations are the most popular pre-university qualifications taken by students seeking entrance to UK universities. They are recognised worldwide as being of a very high academic standard. Students normally choose their A Level subjects in accordance with their future BA, BSc and B Eng degree studying plans. An A Level course usually consists of 6 modules (3 AS or Advanced Subsidiary and 3 A2 units). Coursework can contribute to final results; A Levels examinations are graded A-E. A Level students generally undergo regular tests under examination conditions and their results usually help identify areas in need of special attention.
GK Consultants tutors are pleased to provide specialist A Level subject tutoring, A Level study, methodological, essay wri9ting and examination skills assistance and associated counselling and guidance, all of which is individually tailored in accordance with each A Level student’s personal needs. Many A Level students find the expectations of A Level examiners in relation to independent learning, critical thinking and argument statement skills somewhat daunting while others experience difficulties with practical matters such as note taking, skimming and scanning.
GK Consultants tutors are pleased to provide students with help in whatever academic, methodological or practical areas they require, and an in-depth interview is conducted immediately after registration to enable all newly-enrolled A Level students at GK Consultants confide in the Director or his authorised deputy over whichever aspects of their A Level studies they feel are not enabling them to achieve their full potential. The Personalised Learning Plan that results from this preliminary discussion is then structured around these areas with the aim of ensuring any weaknesses are addressed and then rectified in the weeks and months ahead.
Most A Level students who enrol at GK Consultants find this individual attention enormously helpful in enabling them to air personal learning difficulties they may feel shy or inhibited about raising in larger classes with the result that they are thus able to raise their A Level mock test results in preparation for their final A Level examinations.
GK Consultants’s A Level tutoring is provided both to first-time A Level candidates (in their first and second years) and to A Level retake students (GK Consultants tutors’ expertise can help retake students achieve a 2-grade improvement on their previous results.)

GK Consultants is happy to provide specialist tutoring in different A Level subjects. GK Consultants tutors work continuously to ensure their A Level students receive the best tuition available and show the best academic performance of which they are capable. The A Level subjects they teach include Accounting, Art, Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, Physics, Economics, Mathematics, French, History, Geography, Psychology, English, Sociology and Law. Other subjects may be available on request – please contact GK Consultants for further details.

Academic English support is also available at GK Consultants for international students whose first language is other than English. Students normally require IELTS 5.5 or TOEFL 550 or an equivalent pass grade in another Higher Intermediate level EFL examination to be able to succeed at A Level.
