Brian DickinsonHost: Brian is a History and Sociology teacher with 26 years experience. He is also an examiner with two exam boards, so he likes to focus on material and techniques that will best help students when it comes to exam time.

This is a key class which every student will gain valuable lessons from. Hosted by Brian who is an experienced examiner, students will be guided through what they need to look out for when they're taking their exams. 

This is a unique chance to get first hand insight into how examiners read and mark exams which can hugely help students consider what is important when they take their exams and when considering how teachers will assess their work.

Students will not only learn tips on taking exams/assessed work itself but help in how to revise subjects in advance, to use their time wisely and feel confident when entering an assessed situation.
