The content and structure of the A-level are the same for all colleges in Britain. The number of items is insignificant, but they are all conducted with exceptional detail.

Abbey College Birmingham reviews

Marina Savelova

Hello, I never thought that studying in England is so easy. My friend advised Abby College in Birmingham - I had to take an IELTS exam.

Our institutes nervously smoke on the sidelines - everything is clean, cozy and thought out. I successfully passed the exam, but the impressions were the best. It was amazing that there is hot water !!! Believe me, after our hostels you feel it - the girls will understand. Of course, a little expensive (thanks, parents are not poor), but it's worth it.
