Frequently asked questions

I’m in Year 12 – why is it so important to get Up Learn now (rather than wait for Year 13)?

The sooner you use Up Learn to start building your knowledge, the more effective your learning will be. Read about how knowledge impacts your ability to learn and perform.

Equally, Using Up Learn in Year 12 helps you get the best predicted grades and reference possible.  These are important aspects of your university application.  So, if you want to smash any interviews and gain an offer from your dream university, use Up Learn as soon as you can!

Do 97% of students that complete Up Learn courses really get A*-A?

Yes! If they didn’t, our money-back guarantee would have bankrupted us by now!

The important thing here is that these students have completed the course. If you buy Up Learn, you won’t automatically get an A* in the same way that joining a gym doesn’t get you fit. If you use Up Learn and finish the course, you will get an A*/A or you will get your money back. You’ve got nothing to lose!

Is completing an Up Learn course hard?

You’ll be surprised at how quickly you can fly through an Up Learn course. Engaging content helps students retain knowledge, so all of our content is made to be as engaging as possible.

Courses take 8-16 weeks to complete from scratch, based on 1 hour per day. This varies by student and subject – many students will not need to start from scratch to attain A*-A.

Students describe us as “Netflix for education” – binge watch some videos and watch time fly!

If I don’t intend to complete the course, is there any point to me having Up Learn?

Even if you choose not to complete Up Learn, you will find the interactive videos (where you can search for topics to get help) and 1-2-1 tutor support invaluable when you come across something you don’t understand. Students find our quiz questions and practice exam papers indispensible when revising. Up Learn is immensely effective in helping you achieve the best results in the shortest time possible. Even when they don’t complete the course, the average student goes up at least a grade using Up Learn.
