NEC recommends that for standard A levels, you consider studying across two years. However, we understand that occasionally life gives you deadlines and sometimes some things simply can’t wait.
If you are a highly motivated individual with the time to dedicate yourself to 36 weeks of programmed study, and would like to improve your chances of achieving your desired grade. Our highly structured Fast Track A level Chemistry course could be the perfect option for you, and will help ensure you are ready to sit your exams in 2021.
Important information: Enrolments for our Structured Fast Track A levels are now closed for the September 2020 intake. You can enrol on A level Chemistry at any time or register interest for September 2021 below.
A structured Fast Track A level course is particularly useful if you’re studying with a specific purpose in mind, like applying to university, and need your grades quickly, applying for a new job, or seeking promotion. Perhaps you’re retaking an A level and still want to apply to your chosen university?
The flexible nature of distance learning and home study courses means that it’s possible to do this, as long as you’re able to schedule in enough study time. What’s different about our structured Fast Track A level Chemistry course is that it has been specifically designed to follow a carefully considered 36 week study programme, providing you with the extra support you need to gain the all important grades you require.
