Easter Revision course comparison

As explained in more detail on our advice page 'getting Easter Revision right', Easter Revision courses come in all shapes and sizes, with significant differences in taught hours, syllabuses covered, costs etc.

The table below compares some of these key differences for all the CIFE colleges offering Easter Revision in 2018. You will still need to contact individual colleges (or the CIFE secretary) to find details of syllabuses etc, but we hope this Easter Revision course comparison page will get you started.
