No this won’t be possible. We feel that to have the best possible chance of improving grades (and gaining entry to a competitive university if studying A-Levels), students should study for the whole academic year and retake in Summer 2021. This will allow more time to learn the elements of the syllabus missed when schools closed in mid March and also allow better preparation for A-level and/or University study.
Yes, you can dependent on the rest of your programme. Normally doing one subject from scratch works best. This is something that we would discuss further with you on an individual basis.
This depends on the subject – but due to the different circumstances this year A-Level students you will be joining Year 13 classes and having coverage of Year 12 lessons as required.
For GCSE classes the whole syllabus is taught in one year, so we would recover everything from your two year course.
A-Level Subjects are:
Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths
Business and Economics
Art and Photography
English Language, Geography, Psychology, English Literature, French, and German are available if there is sufficient demand.
GCSE subjects are:
Art, Biology, Business, Chemistry, English, Maths, Further Maths, Photography, Religious Studies & Physics
This is not a major issue and can be discussed at the interview.
Yes, we will get to know you very quickly and we build on your previous reference. It is always helpful if you can get your previous school or college to release your reference to us.
Yes, we offer a programme called Combined Studies programme and it is a good alternative to A-Levels and recognised by some very good universities.
We would be very happy to talk to you about what courses would be suitable for you to study at the college and accept students at a number of different entry levels. Different exam boards and our option blocks may mean that it is not possible for you to continue seamlessly, but we can discuss your options here.
We have been offering a highly successful online programme since March, holding classes on line via Microsoft Teams and following the students’ normal timetables. All students have received one to one contact with tutors where needed. If necessary, this will continue in September. We also record all our online lessons, ensuring that students have access to all their lessons and can look back at previous teaching as a learning resource.
Yes, Abbey College Manchester offers a One Year GCSE course, which is an ideal way for students to improve their grades. Students are able to take up to six subjects. Please click here for subject options.

It’s been a wonderful experience studying my A-levels at Abbey College Manchester. The small class sizes meant that my teachers were able to individually tailor their lessons towards us and ensure that we received all the support required.”
Although I will miss Abbey College Manchester, I am excited to start a new chapter at university. I’m very grateful for the support from the staff, they have helped me greatly to reach my full potential.”

Outside of lessons, the staff s were still very supportive. Applying for medicine as I did, or any competitive courses or university is a rigorous process. Yet, by practicing for Multiple Mini Interviews and taking part in the medical ethics club at Abbey College, I was given an invaluable tool when preparing for various medical school interviews. I will always be grateful for this preparation now I leave Abbey College and go on to study at university to become a doctor.”
