Benefits of a GCSE English Easter Revision Course

GCSE scores have always been significant, but their importance today is higher than ever.

Because examinations were previously cancelled owing to the Corona Virus, the pressure on GCSE grades is at an all-time high, as GCSE 2022 exams are scheduled to take place as usual.

Many students writing their GCSEs haven't had a normal school year since Year 8!

Furthermore, because A levels are now linear(The Uni Guide), university tutors are paying far greater attention to candidates' GCSE results.

Not surprisingly, more students are eager to put their best 'foot forward' and make use of all available help and resources while studying for GCSE examinations.

This 6-hour English GCSE course is one such valuable resource.
