This is a very important time in the life of any student preparing for a variety of year group assessments, mocks or final course exams. In support, thorough revision is essential if students are to be successful in any examination.
We recommend that revision be completed over an extended period of time to be effective and give the best possible experience and outcome.
Our effective revision resources give instructional advice about the best ways for students to revise to effectively store and retrieve information, along with helpful tips and information for parents.
We have created an Effective Revision Google Classroom that all students have been invited to join. In support, subject teams will be uploading revision material directly onto their Google Classroom pages. Students will be able to access this using their Google Classroom accounts.
As part of our Personal Development Curriculum, Tutors and Teachers will also be leading effective revision based sessions to complement the revision that students will be completing at home.
We have listed below a series of instruction video clips to help students, of any year group, get started straight away. All of them are available in the Effective Revision section of Google Classroom.
