GCSE Exam Study Help

Use These Four Study Habits to Beat the Revision Beast!

Some students leave GCSE preparation too late.  As the countdown begins in earnest in Year 10, they begin to panic.  Make changes now to your study regime and it will pay off in Year 11!

Effective study skills can often make good students into great students. Here are four great study habits to help your GCSE student get the most out of their learning potential.

  • Study Planner- students will know the topics they need to give special attention to. A long term plan of the year ahead helps to avoid last minute cramming before exams.

 

  • Study Schedule- regular study sessions on a timetable will make life easier as it becomes part of the daily routine.

 

  • Study Time- designate a ‘communication blackout hour’ , no phones, messaging, gaming or TV.

 

  • Study Space- create a study area away from distractions, ideally a quiet, well lit area, with materials to hand.

 

In our experience we find that students need to be self-motivated to do extra study by Year 10 and 11.  Pressuring them to study can be counterproductive.

Support in setting up these four study habits will give them the chance to prepare more effectively.   If you do catch them studying or doing something well, that is the time to really compliment them!

What parents say...

Thank you for all your support with our son, Thomas. His hand writing, spelling, maths and reading is progressing beautifully. I would highly recommend your setting to anyone who wishes to give their child a boost or to work on specific learning goals. It has been invaluable. All your tutors are warm, welcoming and professional and Thomas is always made to feel valued. Positive praise and lots of stickers, stamps, rewards, prizes and certificates give that extra special touch to reward and recognise the children’s efforts. Thomas is certainly always proud of his achievements from your centre.

Prezton has done really well and we are very proud of his achievement so thank you all again

“The GCSE Maths Tutors Are Great.”

T’anna came to us as her mum had seen us on Facebook and decided to call.  T’anna, now in year 10, had always struggled with her maths.   In four short months however, she has improved so much that, the school want to put her up for the Higher GCSE paper!!  Kerry, T’anna’s mum says ” She has come on leaps and bounds, I am so pleased with the progress. The tutors are great! It’s a convenient location and the assessment is easy to arrange.”

I would like to thank you for the enthusiastic way in which you have helped Vicky gain confidence in her abilities to learn.  She has been a different child since coming to you and has a more positive view now!

We were super happy with your approach and B settled in so well. She looked forward to the tutoring and got a lot out of the sessions. Without a doubt her confidence has grown and I wouldn’t hesitate to use I Love to Learn again in the future. Many thanks, Cat
We are Super Happy!
Dylan had always struggled with very poor handwriting.  After only a few months teachers can now read his writing and he feels more confident.  His coordination problems have been recognised “Thanks to your suggestion,” and this has helped at school.   It has made a big difference to his schooling as he enjoys it much more now.

“Thanks for all your hard work with Rebecca Kivlin. She has started Milton Cross this week. Rebecca is in the top set for maths and science, and the second group for everything else. Without coming to Love to Learn she would never have achieved this.  Thanks”

We are so pleased that Mahera has got a FULL BURSARY for the local girl’s high school in Portsmouth.  She has been to your centre before for tuition but we came back in November so she could get ready for the exams.   She has worked so hard and Linda has really encouraged her in her writing!  Thanks so much!
