GCSE revision can get a bit same-y. Read subject, make notes on subject, make smaller notes on subject, perform miracles with ant-size writing to make notes even smaller. Remember notes. Rinse. Repeat.
I once heard a teacher of GCSE English remark that one of the best ways to teach his students how to pass was to take the examination himself.
When the great illusionist David Blaine was asked how he manages to achieve difficult stunts he admitted he says to himself, somewhat pragmatically; “so today I’m going to have breakfast, read the paper and stand in an ice block”.
For our students sitting the new GCSE exams in 2017, the watchword is “rigour”. Engaging teenagers in their learning through fun activities, challenging tasks, personal tuition and guidance equals a winning formula when it comes to them sitting their all-important examinations.
