The GCSE Intensive course is designed to offer students the chance to revisit and potentially improve upon the GCSE qualifications that they have taken during years 10 and 11. Oftentimes, due to unpredictable or unforeseeable circumstances, a student may not achieve their full potential in their first sitting; we are here to provide the chance for each student to reach their potential.
Over the span of fifteen years in an educational field, we have discovered students mainly suffer in their GCSE grades due to methodologies, or simply a lack of application and hard work. Resistance in overcoming problems in key skills such as numeracy and literacy can sometimes be due to a student’s previous study environment. Our intimate, warm atmosphere provides the perfect environment for students to learn and feel comfortable tackling the tasks they find most difficult, with practiced, patient tutors to guide them.
One year intensive GCSE courses offer students another opportunity to progress in this key milestone in their study life. Here at Reliance College we offer students the ability to study 6 GCSE’s (with a maximum of 9 at once, depending on ability and interest). These are IGCSE’s, which are the International version of the GCSE qualification and recognised all over the world. IGCSE examinations are favoured by the leading independent schools, seen as a more advanced test and as a better preparation for AS and A levels.
Our one-year GCSE courses are equally suitable for students who have previously taken their GCSE’s at another school and wish to improve their grades, and for those who have never taken GCSE’s before and wish to do so in one year. These courses would also suit those who have been home-educated as a final preparation for the examinations.
This course is also quite popular with A-Level students who may have completed their GCSEs and moved onto AS levels but failed to get passes in core subjects such as English and Maths. These two subjects are particularly important because all universities will look for these qualifications as a pre-requisite for the reading of a degree in any subject.
