Welcome to Preparation For College

We know that the current situation is particularly difficult for students and here at Itchen Sixth Form College we want to make your transition to college as easy as possible. This is why we have collated different resources for you to start going through ready for September.

We would also encourage students to complete any work issued by their schools, and particularly anything outstanding from subjects you are intending to study at college. Although there will be no examinations in the summer, the best possible preparation for college would be a full and thorough revision of the three or four courses that link most closely to those subjects that you plan to study at Itchen.  Keep exercising your brain, and please try to retain the good study habits that you have developed over the past 11 years!

As well as the Preparation Work below, take a look at GCSEPod, which has podcasts to help you revise and refresh your knowledge and help bridge the gap between GCSE and A Level. You might find this guide on Getting Ready For A Level useful as well.
