The General Certificate of Education Advanced Level (A-LEVEL's) s an examination completing secondary education. The A-level diploma is internationally recognized and accepted by most foreign
universities. Excellent results in the A-level’s exams are one of the criteria for admission to the most prestigious British universities.
Students usually prepare for exams for 2 years. They start their preparation by choosing 3 - 4 preparatory courses in the first year of Further Education.
Unlike other qualifications, this exam does not require preparation for specific subjects. Students have the opportunity to combine subjects at their discretion, but most will
choose those subjects that they want to study at the university. In fact, so is the condition at most universities.
Students are usually tested externally and in writing (except for an oral exam in a foreign language). The output of the evaluation are points called Uniform Mark Scheme. Based on
the percentage measured according to these points, the final grade is calculated as follows: 100-90% = A* (only for the total grade in the whole A-level; the percentage in A2 must not fall below 90%),
89-80% = A, 79- 70% = B, 69–60% = C, 59–50% = D, 49–40% = E, 39–0% = U. U grade indicates a failed test.
The examination board creates tests and subject syllabi, so the curriculum within one subject across the syllabi can differ significantly from different committees.
It consists of two subtests: Advanced Subsidiary and A2. Both of these subtests account for 50% of the total grade. Students start preparing for AS in the first year of preparation. A2 is a more complex,
more academically oriented exam than AS.
Students usually prepare for 4 subjects within the AS, and three within the A2.

Thank you all
Vicky, student of Italian
Thanks to your School Populo, my horizons have been widening since February, and my tutor and I are experiencing exciting moments while learning Italian during our classes. In my 50+ I am again like a young pupil, and progress is visible. I look forward to going to Italy and being able to use my efforts in practice. Thank you all. Knowledge is the only thing no one will take from you!
I would like to thank you all very much for your helpfulness and friendly approach to tutoring our daughter Tina. We will definitely use your services again in the future.
Japanese language learning
To learn Japanese, I was looking for an institution that is able to offer me maximum variability of dates at an acceptable price. I found School Populo, which met my needs both in search of the optimal teaching time and acceptable financial conditions. Communication with the institution has always been fast; the performance of the staff in charge of providing a particular tutor was welcoming and correct.
I highly recommend School Populo lessons
School Populo pleased me, especially with its friendly attitude. It was able to fulfil everything I wanted. I got on very well with the tutor since day one. I could always say what I needed at a given moment or, conversely, what was not necessary. The lessons were held in a friendly spirit during the entire tutoring package. During the emergency period, when it was not possible to meet the tutor in person, the School figured out a way to avoid losing the lessons and hence not falling behind. If you are lost in any subject from mathematics to English, I highly recommend the lessons of School Populo.
Thank you for your professionalism, friendly approach to individual times of lessons for my daughter
Tutoring with the tutor Leanne K. was at a high level; my daughter improved her pronunciation, acquired knowledge that she would not have received at primary school. It is true that I was surprised by the price per hour, but the discounted package provided by you for a higher number of hours paid off in increasing knowledge and improving English pronunciation and the above-standard approach of your school to the possibility to move the last lessons to the next summer holidays. If we need help with high school subjects, not just English, we will contact your School again.

My son Dominic was getting prepared for resit
My son Dominic was taking your classes to get prepared for a resit from physics and chemistry. He passed both resits successfully and is advancing to the next grade. I would like to thank you; without your tutoring, he would not be able to do so. My husband and I were looking for quality tutoring, but we weren’t satisfied until we found your School. Thanks again. I will definitely recommend your services to others.
Many thanks to Miss C. for tutoring Suzanne. If she needs it in the future, we would definitely like to contact you again. She was always looking forward to the lesson. We wish you all the best and, above all, health.
Mom’s story – “edutainment”
My daughter Elisabeth was quite scared of going to school. She cried and had a stomach ache. Just a mention that she was going to start school in September and had to leave kindergarten, and a hysterical attack followed. Although she went through a pre-school preparation, her fears did not disappear. I was desperate for that myself. I didn’t want to go directly to a counselling centre with her, and I found a pre-school preparation on the Internet that offered exactly what Elisabeth and I needed. The nice tutor took away all the phobias and worked up all possible kinks, and after a few weeks, the fear and stress were gone. In addition, her pre-school preparation aroused her desire to learn, and we are no longer afraid of school!!
We were very satisfied with chemistry tutoring.
Paige B., mom
We were very satisfied with chemistry tutoring. School Populo provided us with a great tutor who was able to help my daughter with high school chemistry so that she could pass demanding tests and understand the subject. Thank you.
Jane has been tutoring at School Populo since September 2018. She is a student of Molecular and Cell Biology at the University. She tutors Chemistry in such an easy way, so students can understand the context and there is nothing to be afraid of in this subject anymore. In addition to chemistry, she also tutors English, which she studied at an English grammar school and holds a CAE certificate. She enjoys reading, mostly in English. She likes movies and everything related to the Star Wars series. Her other hobbies are skiing and swimming. She decided to tutor because she enjoys passing on her knowledge to students and showing them new perspectives.
Julia loves our branch so much that she spends every afternoon with her students there. Although she eventually decided for accounting, she originally studied mathematics at Masaryk University and tutors this subject in our school. In addition to the tutoring of school subjects, she is primarily involved in careful preparation for admission or graduation exams. She always does her best so that the children learn as much as they can from her classes, but also leave in a good mood, feeling better about themselves. That’s Julia’s biggest reward.
Russian and English language tutor
She graduated from the grammar school and is now a student of Corporate Russian. She has been working at School Populo since September 2018, which she enjoys and is happy working with students. She tutors languages, namely Russian and English. She takes tutoring primarily as an opportunity to move students and herself forward. She likes to maintain a friendly and relaxed relationship with her students and tries to pass on the content in a fun way. In her free time, she likes to travel, discover new cultures, do sports, or go out with friends.
Physics, mathematics and computer science tutor
My name is Irene, and I am currently studying Physics at the Technical University for the third year in a row. Although I have always been interested in mathematics and physics, I sometimes also struggled in them. That’s why I decided to work at School Populo because I know from my own experience how important tutoring can be and how much it can help. It is a pleasure to work with students, because I am always very happy for the students when mathematics and physics finally start making sense to them and they stop being afraid of these subjects. In addition to working at School Populo and studying, I enjoy spending time watching series, playing computer games, and caring for my overly large family of cats.
German language tutor
Georgia has been working at School Populo as a German tutor since the beginning. She graduated from the University with a degree in German for Specialist and Professional Communication and worked in a company as an accountant with German. She also previously worked as a teacher at the Kofoeds School, where she taught German language courses. Now she prefers one-on-one tutoring of pupils, students, and adults. That’s why she enjoys tutoring at School Populo. She always wanted to become a teacher. She likes to meet new people and help them achieve their goals. Her hobbies include languages, traveling, and literature. In addition to German, she also likes English, French and Russian. Her favourite destination is New Zealand, where she goes to visit her son. Georgia says that German can be studied with a smile.
