intensive easter revision courses
1-5 April and 8-12 April 2013
Rochester Independent College offers both traditional Easter revision courses in all subjects as well as ongoing personalised programmes of exam preparation and study leave support to students from local schools who may be on study leave in the run up to their examinations.
Our revision courses are tailored to your needs. We encourage all students to contact us to discuss their requirements.
Intensive revision courses provide an opportunity to gain an overview of the syllabus and a chance to practice applying knowledge to real examination questions. This helps with recall of facts and hones skills required for accurate question interpretation and structuring full and concise answers. Most importantly, as many past students have commented, the courses give a real confidence boost at a crucial time.
Many students are hardworking and committed to their studies yet still find the top grades elusive due to poor revision techniques, inadequate examination preparation and practice as well as a general lack of confidence. Our Easter and Study Leave courses are designed to remove these barriers and help students from other schools realise their potential. Exam board specific courses give the opportunity to spend time with a new teacher when students can ask the questions they really want to ask and revisit parts of the syllabus they need to revise.
The courses allow students to concentrate exclusively on structured revision without distraction in an environment in which they can easily obtain help with any problems. Although it is of course impossible to measure the improvement in examination results achieved by students who have taken revision courses, past students consistently comment that they felt very much better prepared and that they have approached their examinations with far greater confidence. Our courses are far more effective and enjoyable than solitary home based revision.
Uniquely at Rochester Independent College, because we already have a well established provision for part time students, further support is available after the Easter revision time from our team of subject specialists. Students are welcome to join weekly after school classes or to attend for additional lessons or revision help during the day in their study leave. This support is available right through the examination period.
