This suite of E.T.A. Tutorial Programmes is aimed at those A-level students who didn’t quite achieve their target grade in the Summer Session in their Mathematics examinations. This is particularly disappointing; especially if a student has just missed out on winning a place at their chosen university or higher education college for a degree course starting in the Autumn.
Hard as it undoubtedly is, it is important that students are able to respond to Summer examination disappointment with positive action, and to use the months of August and September to fully engage with and commit to, a focused and structured programme of revision.
The focus of these courses is to consolidate learning to date, check on the effectiveness of your learning strategies, and of course to assist each student with their subject and exam board specific examination preparation and techniques. Each Revision Course will use a bank of past and specimen papers, together with our own question and tasks databank and calculator technique exercises (as appropriate).
Each E.T.A. Exam Revision Series Online Short Course is especially designed for groups of up to five students and is hosted by an experienced tutor who leads the session on our dedicated online interactive whiteboard.
E.T.A. is offering the following online resit examination preparation courses to help students prepare for A-level Mathematics and Further Mathematics resit examinations in the October 2021 Session:
Our Exam Revision Series Online Short Courses are built on the principle that a student resitting an examination is more likely to be successful if structured revision is run alongside a self-correcting ´refresher´approach. To facilitate this, our courses adopt a THREE STAGE learner-centred facilitation process to help empower students adopt their own refresher-correction-approach alongside their subject-content revision to:
The course is delivered through an interactive whiteboard (that is embedded in the course webpage). This is a very powerful platform with the following features: file sharing, session recording, breakout rooms, polling, screen sharing, pan-and-zoom, limitless pages, maths tools and symbols editor, live chat, etc.
A User Guide and on how to use the main functions of the learning whiteboard is available to students on the course delivery webpage.
During the course, you will have your own, secure portfolio-database dashboard record with a link to the course delivery webpage, and a document exchange area to upload assignments and download tutor set tasks, feedback, progress reports, etc. There is no software to install.
