I attended a Bristol Groundschool online revision week and wondered how it would be. I anticipated problems with poor quality streaming or getting distracted as I was studying at home but I was surprised to find myself totally ‘in the zone’. I am self employed and the new online course has allowed me to study around my work, in my spare time.

I am delighted I can complete my course online, I much prefer this, than to go back to tuition in the classroom, particularly as it has saved me a considerable amount of money and travelling time and the instruction is equally as good.

I chose Bristol Groundschool because of its great reputation and I am very pleased I did. The instructors are all industry experienced and the quality of teaching is excellent.  The computer based training material is of a high quality and includes tests all the way through to check your level of understanding. I passed all my exams first time.

Duncan Grocott

Former Bristol Groundschool student

I chose the modular route as I have a full time demanding job. Flexibility and distance learning was key for me.

I chose the modular route as I have a full time demanding job. Flexibility and distance learning was key for me.

I did a fair amount of research before choosing Bristol Ground School. The time and effort you invest in studying and succeeding is significant. Choosing the right school is a key. I can honestly say this has been one of the best decisions I have made.

The whole process from signing up and receiving log in details was fast and straightforward. The online platform with detailed teaching material, explanations and animations along with regular progress checks and tests really does help build your knowledge.

The revision weeks at the end of each module were a particular highlight as these significantly help consolidate knowledge and prepare you for the exams. Covid meant the last revision week for me was online. I was surprised at how well this worked, with a high level of engagement and participation in a virtual classroom.

So what did I learn throughout the process?

There are no short cuts in this. You really do need to learn your stuff AND practice using various question banks. The banks compliment your learning and help with question styles etc…but you need to know your stuff. I used a variety of question banks but found BGS to offer the most comprehensive worked and explained answers to questions. (It doesn’t help if you get a question wrong…but don’t understand why!)

From my experience, what has set BGS apart is the quality and dedication of the staff at every level, from administration to teaching. The subject leaders are seasoned pros (All are current or former pilots and engineers) who have a passion for their subject matter and an equal passion to impart knowledge and prepare you for the exams.

Make no mistakes, I found the exams tough going…but that’s because they are tough. That said, with an average mark of 91%, dedication and hard work pays off. What has made the difference for me has been the quality of the teaching material and the outstanding team who have supported and guided me throughout. Their passion is infectious!

If you are planning to invest in doing your ATPL exams, I cannot recommend BGS more highly.

I couldn’t recommend Bristol Groundschool enough – from the ATP digital software and the revision week, to the massive and really up-to-date question bank – bgsonline, the whole package together with the great support from the whole BGS team made it easier than I expected.

The school is a really great place to come and study, the instructors are very good and interesting, highlighting all the right things. It is also a very pleasant environment too, where you can really focus on your lessons. I will be recommending Bristol GS to anyone who wants to pass their ATPL. The question bank is also great and always up-to-date.
