Perhaps the leap from GCSEs has proved quite big or maybe English isn't your first language. Sometimes the social side of a sixth form or college environment can be a bit overwhelming, your individual learning needs might not have been met or you've found that left to your own devices you just weren't getting through the workload. Some students realise early on that they are not getting enough help to succeed and others find they have to repeat a year or an exam to get the end result they deserve.
Every year hundreds of students sit exams with us from GCSEs to BMAT and many in between.
There are lots of reasons why some teenagers need to work in a small focused group, where they won't fall behind. At Magdalen Court School our teachers are friendly and easy to talk to. They have a great deal of experience in helping students through A-levels in a wide range of subjects. You'll be in a very small study group of just a few students and will get all the individual help you need to stay motivated, learn, revise and gain your qualifications.

MCS has established a reputation for providing first-class tuition in 'A' level, GCSE & NVQ subjects. The school offers first-time A-level courses over one or two years, as well as one-term and one-year retake courses for both A-level and GCSE.
The effectiveness of these courses hinge upon a high degree of individual attention and supervision, careful adherence to the precise syllabus requirements with reference to previous exam questions and an emphasis on sound study, revision and examination techniques. Our well qualified staff are specialist teachers and tutors of high calibre. They communicate ideas skilfully and are sympathetic to each student’s learning style.
One of the strange aspects of academic life is that at your interview for university or work, little emphasis will be placed on your academic qualifications. Those qualifications you worked so hard to achieve, will be the key to open the door to the interview, but at the interview the focus is likely to be on what else you have been doing with your life.
So just like your post 16 academic choices you need to carefully plan, execute & achieve experiences outside of the classroom.
