As an adult, you might be looking to take an exam in order to progress in your career or move into a new profession. Adults can take all sorts of exams at all different levels, but finding the right learning resources and support isn’t always easy.
Exams in law, accounting, and medicine, for example, are commonly taken amongst adults who are training for a new career or a professional development. These courses need specialist attention and tutoring, which is very often carried out via distance learning through a specialised agency.

And it’s not just specialised professional exams that adults need to sit. Some people find that, in order to move into a new career or progress to a certain level, they might need a GCSE or A-level in a subject that they don’t already have any qualification or skill in at a fundamental level.
Even more base level exams in adult numeracy and literacy require people to invest a lot of time and effort into preparation and practice. This is why many adults turn to private tutors.
Private tutoring, whether an online tutor or at home, tutors can provide people with a fine-tuned education support alongside their studies from an expert. If you find a tutor with particular experience in tutoring for the exam you’re taking, then you’ll benefit from their expertise in the exam format as well as its content.
Studying for an exam as an adult can be tough when you’re having to fit it around a full-time job and other responsibilities. It can be hard to know where to start with exam prep, let alone how to prepare properly and learn everything you need to.
And that’s why hiring a personal tutor is such a great choice! You can meet whenever and wherever suits you, and you can even carry out your lessons via video chat if you don’t have the time to travel around for face-to-face lessons.
Some adults might find themselves opting to take a GCSE or A-level exam, whether in order to apply for a certain job or qualification, or to boost certain skills. This is much more difficult that if you were to take the exams at the target age group, as you are without the classroom education that most students receive in preparation.
