There are six units of study across both courses. You will undertake a range of practise papers, which will lead to, with the approval of your teacher, a wave of final examinations: three for English and one for Maths. The English exams relate to Reading, Writing, and Speaking and Listening. The Maths will be a 2-hour examination.
Exams cost just £95 when you choose to sit them online, or to sit them in person here at Oxbridge. If you want us to come to you, it will cost £175 + travel costs.
