Revision strategies – twilight session

16:00–17:30 on 15 November 2018

These skills are especially crucial in the time leading up to examinations when pupils need to be revising outside of the classroom. However, many pupils lack the knowledge of how to revise effectively, and so time dedicated to revision is often wasted on unhelpful activities that have no impact on learning or outcomes. […]
