A Level Bootcamp

A-level bootcamp

About the programme

Option 1: 3-Day Bootcamp in Biology, Chemistry, Physics or Maths.

The University of Warwick is committed to working with young people to maximise their academic potential. We are offering Year 13 students who are taking part in one of our access programmes, and predicted to achieve between A* to C grades the opportunity to participate in a free three day A Level Revision Bootcamp during the Easter holidays.

Participants will learn, revise and study one subject area intensively and we aim to provide a packed timetable, which will be constructive, valuable and enjoyable. Each day will be hosted at the University of Warwick, but sessions will be delivered by qualified teachers with vast experience in their subject areas.

The bootcamp is non-residential and will take place on The University of Warwick's campus. The bootcamp will take place on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th April 2024. You will be required to attend all three days.

Option 2 - Revision Spaces

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer the bootcamp for all subjects and have had to prioritise those that are amongst the most popular for students on our programmes. If you are studying English Literature, History or Psychology, we are pleased to be able to offer a revision space for a very limited number of students on the following days:

Tuesday 2nd April – English Literature

Wednesday 3rd April – History

Thursday 4th April – Psychology

These spaces will be on campus and will be staffed by student mentors from the university of Warwick who are studying the subject at degree level and/or who studied the subject at A level. You should bring your own revision and this will be a self-study event – the mentors will be on hand to help if required but will not be teaching or leading a session.

Applications have now closed.
