    Hi all,

    I needed some feedback on the A level intensive course, if anyone could tell me if it's doable, I am taking 3 A levels, French English and maybe Sociology, I need to know for those who entered how was it, was it that hard? and if you took it from GCSE to A level, since this is what I am going to do, right after I finish my GCSES i am going for the intensive course.

    And what college course did you go to study it?
    Is it expensive tuition fees?

    Thanks

    There are only a few colleges in London that offer them if your 16 - 19, but otherwise they're quite costly and found in certain private colleges known as 'crammers'

    So you think by going as private candidate it is cheaper and better?

    As a private candidate you teach yourself (or hire a tutor of your own choosing).

    Then look for tutors and ask their prices.

    Or just go to your tutorial college. If you can afford that, what's the big deal?

    If you actually live in Cairo then I have no idea how much tutors would charge you! To give a rough idea of UK prices, I charge £25 per hour for Sociology tuition so over a whole year it could cost quite a bit for 3 different A level subjects.

    Are there any private schools or local colleges you could use?

    Egypt lacks of the 3 subjects I have stated, private schools here lack of education therefore I can't study here for this kind of exams.

    I seee.
