Revision Courses

Online revision weeks and webinars are available to BGS students who’ve purchased a module or full course.

Each module has a distance learning phase followed by an online revision week, which is held Monday to Friday*. When we are able to open our school again for classroom delivery, students will have the choice between attending the online revision weeks or attending them at our premises in Clevedon, North Somerset (near Bristol Airport); normally the week before the UK CAA exam dates. To supplement our revision weeks, we also run a series of regular live webinars to cover the syllabus and to support students with their learning.

The purpose of the intensive revision course is to consolidate your learning, correct any misunderstandings and prepare you for the exams. Much of the time is spent working through practice papers and debriefing your results so there is very little time to cover new material. While intensive, the results speak for themselves – most Bristol Groundschool students pass all the exams first time.

Prior to attending the Revision course, it is a CAA requirement that you must have passed all your ATPdigital lessons and progress tests. To get the best out of the Revision Course, you must have completed and thoroughly revised your self-study material. If everything has been completed honestly, you will be well prepared.

* Module 3 Helicopter course is a 4-day Revision Course.

Order of modules studied
Fixed Wings revision courses should be studied consecutively, i.e. Module 1, 2 and finally Module 3. For Helicopter revision courses, Module 2 and 3 can be studied in either order but Module 1 should be studied first.



The online revision weeks run 0825 – 1645 Monday – Friday. You will receive joining instructions and a timetable for the week the week prior to course start.

When we are able to offer classroom revision weeks again

If you are attending a face to face classroom revision week please arrive on the first day of the Revision Course before 08:25. The Revision Courses runs from 08:30 until approximately 16:40 each day thereafter.

Some Revision Courses run through public holidays and you will be expected to attend each day. You will complete the Revision Course on a Friday and may sit your exams the following week by booking your exams with the CAA at least 72 hours before sitting your first exam, but we recommend you book your exams at least two-three months in advance to get the dates and venue you would like.  If you are sitting your exams with Austro Control at Bristol Groundschool we would also recommend you book 2-3 months in advance to get the dates and venue you would like. You will find more information about Austro Control exams here.

If you wish to sit your exams under a different EASA state you must seek the approval of that state to do so.


There are limited on-site parking spaces – please see the image below for the area available to park on-site, highlighted red. If you have a motorcycle, please park next to the building rather than in a car space. There is also free parking available on nearby roads; however, please do not mount pavements to park, even if you see other vehicles parked that way; it is common for vehicles parked on the pavement to attract parking tickets and they restrict access for good vehicles. If you find you are staying at the same accommodation as another student, please share lifts if you are both driving.
