Prepare For The 2021 Exam Season With Online Tutoring

7 September 2020 Quick Guides

It’s got to be said that the past few months haven’t been as plain sailing for students and parents due to the Covid-19 lockdown, with schools, colleges and universities having to close for five months or more. However, there has been hope for students who have wanted to continue their studies throughout the pandemic with our very own online tutors here at Tutorspot.

Many educational institutions haven’t provided the necessary learning materials or resources throughout lockdown, which has inevitably staggered the syllabus for thousands of students across the country. As a result, those who have wanted to continue with their studies and stay on track with their learning, whether at GCSE or A-Level, have found and kept their routine with weekly online tutoring sessions which have proved to be a great resource in a time of uncertainty. In this article, we take a look at the proposed changes to the Summer 2021 exam schedule and how best to prepare in the lead up to a somewhat crucial time in the education calendar with some of the best online tutors UK.

In recent weeks there has been huge confusion over the handling of the latest August GCSE and A-Level exam results and how students should have been assessed due to the Covid-19 lockdown. Whilst there was a last minute U-turn from the Government and Ofqual (The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulations) to base students grades on teacher assessments, rather than an algorithm to predict grade averages, there is still a huge cloud of concern and distrust lingering over thousands of students and parents at this point in time.

However, in the past few days, there has been a light at the end of the tunnel, with calls from Government ministers, schools and parents to ‘push back’ GCSE and A-Level exams, with students having missed months of schooling at the start of the year. If this were to happen, it would see the exam schedule being delayed for a month – from May/June to July 2021.

How can I best prepare for these changes if they occur?

As schools and colleges return to some sort of normality during the month of September and you master your back to school routine, now really is the time to start thinking ahead towards your upcoming exams. Although there is only so much of a syllabus you can learn in a short space of time, there are many resources out there that can help propel you to ensure you’re feeling motivated and positive in achieving your grades. In one of our recent articles, we took a look at how online tutors and mock exams make the best combination for success. This is a really useful resource for everyone to read, wherever you are in your exam journey with helpful hints and tips to get the ball rolling.

Here at Tutorspot, we want to dispel any uncertainty and get students believing that they can achieve whatever they put their minds to when it comes to their current situation, as well as their future exams and career. We have seen an increase in students looking for extra support during the lockdown period and coming to us in search for the best and most reliable tutors for them and their individual needs in the lead up to the Autumn 2020 and Summer 2021 exams.

Your dedicated tutor may even be able to give you extra resources and insightful knowledge during your sessions and this can be highly rewarding when you’re limited to textbooks and downloadable resources from the internet.
