If you feel you can help us, please reach out using our livechat!
On or after results day, send a photo of your A Level certificate to us via our Live Chat. We’ll then verify that you completed the course and that your certificate is authentic. If both of these conditions are satisfied, we’ll process a refund!
This depends on the subject! We aim to cover the three main UK exam boards: AQA, Edexcel (Pearson) and OCR. Depending on the subject, we may support WJEC, CCEA, Cambridge Assessment International Education and IB.
Don’t worry! You can still use Up Learn. We recommend that you look at what exam boards we offer, and choose the syllabus that matches yours most. If you don’t know which of our exam boards this is, you can:
When you sign up for a parent trial, you can invite your child. When your child signs up, your accounts will be automatically linked. You can also reach out to us on live chat with your child’s email address.
For plans where you pay upfront, you generally have the option to purchase access until the end of the current academic year (August) or the next academic year. You may also have the option of access until the academic year after the next.
For weekly plans, you have access until you cancel your plan (if subscribed for less than 12 weeks) or until the end of the current academic year (if subscribed for 12 weeks). You pay for a maximum of 12 weeks at a time – access afterwards is free for the rest of the academic year.
We designed weekly plans to match how you would pair for a tutor – weekly, and with the chance to cancel anytime. 12 weeks is all you need to complete Up Learn, so we don’t think you should have to pay for more!
Hundreds of thousands of pounds go into developing our courses and technology. We have world-class teachers, tutors, illustrators, animators and engineers. When you compare Up Learn to other revision aids or services like academic tutoring, we promise a lot more at a fraction of the price! We also offer scholarships to eligible students.
In 2010, our founder, Guy, fell ill with glandular fever at the beginning of his A-Levels and missed an entire term. Faced with the prospect of re-doing the year, Guy spent some of his time off researching ways to learn faster and smarter. He discovered research on cognitive science, and applied key techniques to his learning. Upon returning to school, he rose from below-average grades to top of the year (to the surprise of his teachers).
Guy realised that there were many students who could benefit from this research. However, it was also relatively difficult to apply. He therefore founded Up Learn to make this learning experience accessible to all.
