It’s never too early to get ahead

With year 6 SATs out of the way, GCSEs and A Levels in full swing, many students this time of year often wish they’d revised more or got to grips with that tough part of the syllabus earlier.

Last minute revision can lead to panic. Feeling unprepared – and sometimes terrified – many children blank out in exams when faced with those dreaded questions.

And because exams are naturally competitive, a loss of confidence at the wrong time can sadly affect their eventual grades.

How can this cycle be avoided?

There’s no doubt: through steady revision and planning ahead students perform better. In fact, regular study helps them:

  • Overcome exam nerves, rather ¬†than react to pressure the week before!
  • Structure their time better so that they don’t end up cramming
  • Boost their self-confidence and self-belief
  • Master difficult study areas so they feel ready to tackle any question
Passing exams often boils down to confidence. Whether you’re at primary or secondary school, in further education or an adult learner, you need to believe in yourself.
