Online UCAS Tutoring FAQs

What is the UCAS?

UCAS stands for Universities and Colleges Admissions Service and is the main service students use in the United Kingdom to apply to different universities. It serves as a portal to filter through thousands of university courses and find the one that best suits you. 

It consists of a system of application forms filled by hopeful students just before admission. It is mandatory for all universities and colleges in the United Kingdom to be registered with UCAS in order to apply. It will also make it easier for universities and higher authorities to keep records and compile statistics. 

Applicants applying through UCAS will need to provide various details such as predicted grades and personal statements. With a bit of luck and good grades in your GCSEs and A-levels, there's a good chance you'll get a place at a prestigious university of your choice through UCAS. 

There is no particular subject that UCAS specifically helps with, but it offers admissions to almost all universities in the UK. However, universities and colleges set their own admissions requirements, which vary widely. The aim of UCAS is simply to act as an intermediary and match students with their universities of choice. 

The requirements set by universities help filter the students based on their qualifications, subjects and exam grades. Most universities will expect you to have pre-16 qualifications such as GCSEs and A-Levels to ensure you meet their standards. 

UCAS will also help you find out if your skills meet the requirements of the university you are applying to, so you can save yourself the exorbitant application fees. For example, for each course you can see what skills, interests or experience you need to do well on that course. Also, UCAS informs you about all the compulsory admission tests you need to take before applying. So it's always better to visit UCAS some time before you start your admission to find out if there are any other tests you need to take.

UCAS is the portal to thousands of university courses, and subsequently thousands of career paths. Millions of people apply through UCAS every year and go on in so many different ways.

How expert tutoring can help you

Teachers will take the time to assess your starting point then develop a personalised syllabus to work towards your objectives. Online classes will focus on your areas of weakness and on developing the confidence you need to achieve your goals. Lessons will also push students in areas that they are already comfortable in, encouraging constant improvement and developing positive learning habits.

Why Choose Spires’ Tutoring?

We only hire 4% of the teachers that apply to Spires and they are all professional and experienced school and university level educators. Many have qualifications from top universities and institutions in the UK, USA, and around the world. All have a Ph.D., MSc, Ma, BSc, or Ba in their chosen field.

We have a lot of repeat students and you can check out the high star ratings our clients leave. 

Because tutors set their rates via an auction system, our prices are more competitive than many other companies. Our online classroom is stable and fun to learn through. It has an interactive whiteboard and students can access recordings of classes at any time. They use webcam video chat when being taught.

Spires deals with all of the matching, scheduling, payments, and administration, we take all of the hassles out of organising support and allow students to focus purely on learning.

How does Spires’ online tutoring work?

You can find a professional tutor in four easy steps:

1. Use the Find A Tutor feature to create a post outlining your needs and requirements. You can choose from subject, level, price, and expertise.

2. Find your perfect tutor from our wide variety of skilled professors and educators. After you filter your search results using the Find A Tutor feature you can choose to ‘view profile’ of the best choices for your needs. 

You can then see reviews and star rating, including total hours taught for Spires and the price per hr.

3. Have your face-to-face class. This can be done whenever and wherever you are, it’s all online- neither you nor the tutor travels!

4. Replay the classes afterward for any missed information at your own pace and convenience. 

Private help is that easy!

Does it matter if I have a tutor near me?

No, it doesn’t! It’s all done online whenever and wherever you are. All you have to do is pick your ideal mentor and speak to them to arrange the best time for you to have video lessons.It doesn’t matter at all if they are miles and miles (or kilometre and kilometre) away from you!

Who will my tutor be?

This is all up to you. You have a huge choice. You can look through our member tutor profiles, check student reviews and bids, their qualifications and backgrounds, hourly rates, hours taught, other subjects they teach - and even check out if they have many repeat students. 

Then, communicate with your favourites to see if they are right for your needs and learning style. You can have a free video call by webcam, usually over zoom. Then you pick the person you’d like to help with your studies and schedule your first webcam lesson!

How many UCAS tutors are available to give private lessons?

We currently have over 80 UCAS Tutors and 100s of others with academic and professional experience specialising in a wide range of topics from GCSEs to postgraduate support, and everything in between.

What happens when I send a message?

Once you’ve used the Find A Tutor feature to find your perfect UCAS tutor, you can contact them with any questions you might an even meet in advance. A tutor should respond to you within 24 hrs with an answer and the hours they are available. If your selected teacher isn’t able to fit you into their schedule we will recommend others that fit your specifications. After a tutor replies, you can then schedule a free webcam meet and if you are satisfied you can go ahead and schedule your first lesson!
