Is Your Teen Using An Effective Revision Timetable?
To successfully pass exams requires good planning and an effective revision timetable. Parents can have a significant impact on the success of their teens revision season by helping them to implement three timetable strategies .
Typically a GCSE student will undertake between eight and twelve subjects and therefore they need enough time to develop, understand and master the skills required to successfully pass each of their GCSE subjects.
To achieve this goal requires a revision timetable that is strategic in its approach and that operates within a revision framework to deliver successful exam results. To develop an effective revision timetable requires skill and often students do not have these skills. As a consequence students develop ineffective revision timetables that do not support their revision process. Developing a revision timetable without an effective revision framework or specific structure can have a detrimental impact on a student’s exam confidence but also on their ability to retain revision content.
