Year 11 exams made easy with Made in Education workshop - 09/03/2018

The Year 11 students were given another opportunity to further develop their revision techniques recently, this time through a workshop presented by Robert Devaney from Made in Education. 

The session was attended by all Year 11 students at the Academy and very much focused on four important revision techniques which are proven help students digest information. Students were also provided with some extremely simple strategies to help them prepare for examinations in the summer. 

Mrs Westwater said: “Rob’s delivery was energetic, exciting and instantly captivated the student’s imagination; you could see how their confidence was boosted as the session progressed.” 

Ryan Jones, a Year 11 student at the Academy, said “I feel more confident already, Rob showed us the importance of ‘benchmarking’ and how to use ‘mindmaps’ and ‘cue cards’ to retain key information.  I can still remember the 12 most populated countries using the visualisation techniques he introduced us to.”
