As well as learning subject content itself, it's important to set aside time to consider HOW to learn most effectively. In this class, students will learn how to motivate themselves to revise by setting goals. They will then look at how long and short term memory works and how we can use this information to structure your study to make it effective.  Students will also consider how preparing for your examinations correctly and efficiently can make a marked difference to your grades. 

Taking the time to access a class such as this, will save students considerable time in the future and allow them to revise for exams and teacher assessments in a more focussed way, skills learned will be useful right the way through their lives.
