Summer Exams Countdown…

The clocks going forward heralds exam season. A wake-up call for many GCSE and A level students embarking on the busiest three months of their education so far.

It’s often a time when the realisation sets in for many a youngster that their future depends on passing key exams. With that comes panic.

First things first: don’t let it overwhelm you. Let’s get practical with some study targets you can start today:

1. Focus on your weakest core subjects first. If it’s English, Maths or Science, whittle down each subject to a list of areas/skills you struggle with most.

2. Look back on mock papers you’ve sat in the last year to see where you lost marks. Perhaps it’s your essay structure, timing, lack of question planning. Passing exams isn’t just about knowing content; it’s about exam technique too.

3.  Start a plan of action. Build a revision timetable around these key areas to build your confidence over the next few months.

There’s no shame in getting things wrong in the past. We’ve all been there! Just make sure you learn from those mistakes?

Unlike school revision sessions, a private tutor can focus on your specific needs in half the time. Plus give you a boost of confidence at this critical time. Imagine what a difference that would make?
