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...

We brought him to the centre in Year 6 because he just had no idea about maths.  This year won the ‘Most Improved in Maths’ certificate for his year.  He also came top of his class in 2 out of 3 maths exams.  Coming to here is the best thing we ever did!
Mr S White
She loves coming, and sees that it helps her at school.  Her scores are going up all the time and recently she got three class awards in three weeks, she says this is ‘Thanks to you.
Mrs C Walker
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!
Alex had been tested in Year 4 for dyslexia and he came out mildly dyslexic for spelling.  He has a poor short term memory, and we were concerned about him going to Senior School with these problems. Alex started off a bit ‘anti’, but now he agrees that his writing is better and the improvement has been commented on by teachers.  We are so pleased he is getting professional help, and are especially pleased that he now see the benefit and is self-motivated. He now is now asking for help with his Maths too!
Mrs D Wilson
Thank you so much for helping me with my maths!  I have come along much more in maths lessons at school! Hopefully, depending on whether I need help when I go to Secondary School I might come back again. (I hope so)  Thank you again. Madison.
Mrs H Breen
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.
Laura (Thomas’s mum)
Thank you very much for your help and support in helping Tomek achieve his goals in English
Monica (Tomek’s mum)
“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”

I was told at school that Harrison had fallen about 2 years behind in reading, writing and spelling. Harrison took to it straight away.  He has made fantastic progress and is meeting all his targets.  He loves the points and prizes that he collects for working so he comes out buzzing after every session!
