Up and down the country, both A-level and GCSE students have been collecting their results determining their progression onto further education. As reported top grades have soared, with a total of 44.8% of A-level grades being A* or A grades, reaching a record high.
Crescent Tuition would like to congratulate all students, regardless of their results achieved, for their effort and diligence throughout this year. This has been an unprecedented year, with the assessment format plans changing, resulting in students having to be resilient. By completing the A-level and GCSE courses, regardless of the final grade, all students should be proud of their effort and dedication.
We appreciate that there will be students across the South West, whose results aren’t what they desired, expected, or needed in order to progress onto their desired further education institution. At Crescent Tuition we have the resources available to help assist students to get to their desired destinations, whether this is with the provision of supplementary revision throughout their resit year or a tailored course leading up to the Autumn exam series. We recommend that all students unsure about their next steps, get in contact via the form below to discuss bespoke educational solutions.
These grades were rewarded following the second year of exam cancellations because of the lasting impact of the pandemic. The plans for next year’s assessment format have not been confirmed, yet it has been agreed that students will have access to ‘advance information’ about the ‘focus of the content of the exams’, in the majority of subjects for the 2022 exam series. The exact ins and outs of the provision of advanced information have not yet been verified, as in certain subjects where a choice of topics is being proposed, advanced information will not be provided.
We have compiled a list of resources to assist the next cohort of students with their preparations for the next academic year and exam series including:
- A-level Results Day 2021: What to do if Your Grades Aren’t as Good as Expected?
- What to Expect Transitioning from GCSE to A-level?
- How to Motivate Yourself to Study?
- The Pressure of Perfectionism and the Importance of Resilience
It is unknown what the year ahead holds for academic students, with future assessments and examinations remaining unclear for now. However, Crescent Tuition has the resources available to offer comprehensive and bespoke advice for each individual student, to help assist at each stage.
