Spring term AQA A Level Biology Student Revision Conferences.
The conferences will be led by Michael Brown, Harjit Singh and a team of presenters who have extensive experience of teaching and assessment. The emphasis of the day will be on examination technique.
Note that AS students can attend the day as the examination techniques are common to AS and A level students, even though the contexts may be different.
All students will receive a pack of notes to help with their learning and planned revision.
Accompanying teachers will also be emailed a set of notes to further help classroom revision.
Course fee: £20 (+VAT) per head. Accompanying staff FREE OF CHARGE
