Alternative revision strategies & techniques

  • Teaching a concept to friends and family will help your child to understand it for themselves, becoming a master of their subject!
  • Did you know that smelling rosemary improves results? Northumbria University found pupils working in a room with the aroma of the herb achieved 5-7% better results in memory tests. Time to get the cupboards stocked!
  • If you’re looking for fun ways to mix up revising, making up a song can be a great way to help retain information and improve English language skills.
  • Feeling sleepy? Research shows that just the smell of coffee wakes up the brain and may help people perform better in analytical tests. So why not make a nice cup of coffee while your child is revising?
