Thinking, behaving and revision courses

By Richard Riddell Subscribe to RSS | December 5th 2011 | Views:

When it comes to revision courses, the emphasis here is on both learning and recall. Let’s take the example of a Maths revision course. Your Maths revision course provider will have the expectation that you will have generally covered the material in your school classes, but that there may be a few outstanding comprehension issues to deal with. The good organisations will ask you to complete a questionnaire prior to your Maths revision course to ask you which those issues might be. However, most of the focus for your time on the course will be on consolidating what you know, understanding the exam technique and putting the material to you in a way that you are going to remember.

Maths AS revision course

If you’re taking a Maths AS revision course, then unless it’s a retake, you’re in Year 12 and you’ve recently experienced the jump from GCSE to A Level. You may not be clear on exactly what standard you need to maintain with your application to revision in order to receive the results you need. I cannot emphasise enough the importance of the completion of past paper questions to give you a marker on where you’re sitting. You will likely do past paper questions within your Maths AS revision course and receive feedback. Use this to help you understand whether you need to increase your level of effective revision or whether it’s a matter of maintenance. I must admit to recommending that students err on the side of “more is more” rather than “less is more” when it comes to effective study, though, hence the recommendation of completing a Maths AS revision course. It’s a risky business to take a chance that the minimal amount of effective study will be enough.

Maths A2 revision course

If you’re take a Maths A2 revision course, you’re likely to know exactly what it’s going to take to receive the best possible grade – and how much effort you need to make. Frequently, I work with students who have not done so well at AS Level, but the “fright” they received with their AS grades gave them enough of a boost to raise their efforts another notch for A2. Again, doing past papers within your Maths A2 revision course is going to help you clarify what more needs to be done. They will also help you to prepare mentally: What are the systems that you can use at different times? When you first sit down? When you first read a question, what is your first step? By applying this thinking to past paper practices, you’ll consolidate the approach you’ll take in your exams. In this way, your Maths A2 revision course isn’t simply about revising the material – or learning the bits about which you’re not sure; it’s also about practising the thinking and behaviours that you’re going to do when you go into that exam. This will also significantly help to reduce exam anxiety as well as the “brain freeze” that often hits when you first read that question.
