What I would highlight I am a first year A Level student and am currently studying 4 AS subjects, English Language, English Literature, History and Psychology. All of my courses are amazing. There are skills that are built upon in all of them, such as essay writing and analysis and so they all complement each other, but at the same time they are all different enough that it isn’t repetitive. I find all the subject matter really interesting and engaging, and the tutors are so helpful. If you don’t understand something or you miss a lesson they will help you go through the lesson if there are bits you don’t understand.

What could be improved Nothing bad.
