A Level Bootcamp

A-level bootcamp

About the programme

The University of Warwick is committed to working with young people to maximise their academic potential. We are offering Year 13 students (predicted to achieve between A* to C grades) the opportunity to participate in a free 3 day A Level Revision Bootcamp during the Easter holidays.

Participants will learn, revise and study one subject area intensively, with the chance to review progress through assessments and 1-2-1 feedback. 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.

There will also be an opportunity to explore effective study skills, exam technique and develop strategies in preparing for exams.
