Submitting Assignments (A-Level)

Most weeks you will be set an assignment to help you to practice the topics set for that particular week of the course. I strongly recommend that you complete all tasks and assignment for all sections of each week of the course even though the tasks are not marked as this would represent the work that you would complete in a classroom.

In a classroom, students would be studying for 2.5 hours each week in class plus an hour of independent study. For your course, you have a pre-recorded class each week, a live study group, plus an average 3 hours of independent study. At the start and end of the course, you may find that this increases as practical tasks may take longer, and you are required to watch the films used in the course.

To access your weekly assignment, click on the relevant assignment tab ‘lesson’ on the left hand menu of the course.

From the assignment screens, you will be able to click to download your assignment as either PDF (to print out and complete by hand), or a Word Document (to type your answers into).

Once you have completed your assignment, you should return to the relevant assignment page and upload your assignment. (feedback will given within 14 days).

Your assignment will not be sent to me until you click the Upload button on your assignment.
Please check that you have done this each week!

If you have any questions about your assignment, you can send an email to me at: hello@jqslearning.co.uk.

After your assignment has been marked, you will be sent your score and feedback, which you will also be able to read via the TutorBird feedback portal.
