The large room smelled of polish and wood. Each desk was positioned the same distance apart – close, but not close enough to cheat.
On the desks were blank white sheets of paper. At least, they looked blank. There were also pencils and erasers.
Everyone had to leave their bags and phones in another room. Some of the others showed signs of nervousness. Straight faces and twitchy fingers.
This exam was important. It was the last one. If he passed, it meant he could go to a better school next year.
What was he thinking – if he passed? Of course he would do well. For the last few months, he’d been revising with Education Quizzes. Their quizzes used the proven technique of Active Recall and were perfect for giving him confidence.
He calmly sat at his desk, waiting for the signal to start so he could turn over the paper and begin.
Every time you play one of our quizzes, you’ll remember things you’ve already learned - it’s called Active Recall.
The best way of explaining it is with an example:
Imagine you meet someone for the first time. You’re told their name, but then you don’t see them again for a year. When you do see them, it’s not very likely you’ll remember their name.
Now imagine you meet somebody else, only this time you speak to them a few times over the next year. This time it’s almost certain you WILL remember their name. Every time you speak to them, your brain uses Active Recall to recall their name. The more often you remember their name, the better it sticks in your mind – until you know it without a thought.
Active Recall forces the brain to remember, instead of just asking it to. Playing a quiz is a prime example of Active Recall.
As far as education is concerned, Active Recall is probably the best way to learn. Information becomes easy to remember when you need it - in the exam room, for example. With more and more pressure on students to do well in exams, Active Recall is the best way to practice.
Education Quizzes isn’t the only way to learn and review, but it’s probably the best. Our quizzes are ready-made for all the tests and exams you will face at school.
