If you are applying to study a course at Edge Hill University and don't have the required GCSEs, our revision course gives you the opportunity to gain the equivalent qualification with the support of tutor-led revision sessions. We offer English GCSE Equivalency revision courses at a cost of £275 for either a 12-week course (12 x 3hr tutor-led sessions), or a 4-week intensive course (8 x 3hr tutor-led sessions). This price includes the final exam and two further re-sits if required.
The GCSE English equivalency test is for applicants to Edge Hill University degree programmes (excluding Medicine), where GCSE English is included in the entry requirements. Students who do not already hold a GCSE in English or a recognised equivalent, can use this equivalency to replace the GCSE entry requirement. Other universities may accept the equivalency qualification, however, it is your responsibility to check with the individual institutions first.
The 12-week revision course requires some prior subject knowledge (i.e. the courses are not suitable for complete beginners). The 4-week intensive courses are aimed at later applicants, suitable if you have a sufficiently advanced level of existing subject knowledge. All course dates can be found here: www.edgehill.ac.uk/tests
After you’ve made payment, the Equivalency Tests Team will confirm your registration. Please note, the Equivalency Tests Team work Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm. If you make payment outside these hours we will be in touch when we return to the office.
Important: in order to meet the assessment criteria for the English and Literacy examinations, you must demonstrate a satisfactory level of English language proficiency through the use of appropriate grammar in your answers in order to pass. This course will help you answer the exam questions, but it is not possible to teach English grammar in this short space of time.
