Students will be provided with detailed comprehensive notes on all of the above topics.

**All students must bring their own everyday classroom materials + 1A4 notes copy & 1 A4 folder**

**Unfortunately sharing of any equipment cannot be allowed due to the current health & safety guidelines so students must come prepared with their own materials**

Finally, EXTRA RESOURCES will be published each week on Edmodo for students to be able to study supplement course material at their own leisure outside of our tuition sessions. We would ask all members to use these digital classrooms platforms on a weekly basis to maximise their overall grade.
