Exam and Revision Techniques

Despite the intense focus on exams and grades in education today, students do not always get all the help they need to perform at their best. Revising effectively is a skill which can be learned and developed, and the strategies students use within the exam itself can be worked on and improved. On this course students will learn a range of revision skills including ways of taking notes, memorisation techniques, developing a revision timetable, and improving motivation, and exam skills such as coping with pressure and structuring written answers.

This course is not specific to any particular subject, as the skills taught are applicable to all academic subjects.

The course is available to, and recommended for, secondary school students of all ages, either as one-to- one tuition or in small groups.

Note that there is some overlap with the Thinking and Learning Skills course, in the areas of memorisation techniques, time management, and organisation.

A level and GCSE Revision Courses

AS, A level and GCSE revision courses are offered in several subjects by subject specific tutors, including Maths, English and Science. These courses offer structured revision opportunities, aiming to consolidate knowledge, focus learning, reinforce skills and application of knowledge in exam questions as well as increase confidence. The courses are 3 hour sessions with AS and A level courses offered as 1 or 2 day courses.

Thinking and Learning Skills

On this course, students will discover and develop abilities they never knew they had, and which can boost their confidence and their progress. They will learn effective methods for memorisation and recall, and discover that their memory is better than they thought it was. They will learn how to do effective research and apply critical thinking to sources of information. They will develop lateral thinking skills for approaching problem solving in new and more creative ways. In addition, students will learn techniques to improve their time management, organisation, note-taking, and teamworking skills.

The course can be adapted to suit particular students in terms of which skills are included and how long the course lasts. The course is particularly recommended for pairs or small groups but is also offered as one-to- one tuition. It is available to, and recommended for, secondary school students of all ages.

Note that there is some overlap with the Exam and Revision Techniques course, in the areas of memorisation techniques, time management, and organisation.
