Phew. Let’s just take a breather shall we? It’s getting a little hot in here.
You already know that this stage of your education is extremely important. You also know that good grades won’t just fall out of the sky (if only they did). It takes work to land those high grades on that fateful piece of results paper, but that doesn’t mean revision has to be laborious. Often, where students go wrong is they subject themselves to revision that doesn’t engage them, and it can produce underwhelming results. Long revision sessions can amount to not very much at all, if it’s not the correct revision.

When revising, boredom can happen in an instant. Before you know it, what should have been a revision session has turned into a TV show marathon... now what?
When it comes to revision, it’s natural for minds to wander. There’s so much information to retain and so many distractions at hand. The problem of boredom is an important one and one that has to be listened to. If students aren’t engaged, they won’t learn. So, how can focus be brought to this type of revision? How can students find something engaging while still learning the core curriculum? We’re glad you asked.
Exam revision is notoriously difficult to get into, especially at GCSE level. Get some tips in our What is the Best Way to Revise for GCSE Exams? article.

"It’s a quick way to find out where there are gaps in your knowledge and improve on them." - Jenny, Parent Reviewer
With our quizzes on hand to help, students can turn screen time into revision time, and lose themselves in revision that actually engages them.
