Outline of Session
In this two hour session, students should bring along their revision material and be prepared to study. A member of staff will guide the session in order to give students the opportunity to revise in a structured way.
The session will include a short introduction and explanation of the session, which will touch on time management techniques and apps to aid revision. Students will be encouraged to leave phones on the front table, and potentially use an app to block distracting sites like fb if they are using a computer to revise.
This will be followed by three revision sessions with short breaks in between. There will be water available, (possibly tea and biscuits!) and for the five minute break it will be the responsibility of the session leader to encourage students to have a break, get up, walk about, chat, and re-energise.
After the final revision session, the session leader will ask students to complete a feedback evaluation form.
