Contrary to many teenagers beliefs, you cannot be completely successful by cramming the night before an assessment. Our brains do not work this way it's Science. Please explore the materials below to really see what can help.
We all learn differently so we all revise in varied ways. Our aim is to expose our youngsters early on in their time at Woodlands to all different revision techniques. This way they can see what work best for them and use this as a way to learn more, know more and remember more.
This page contains links to many revision resources.
