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.
