Revision Tip of the Week!

Spacing is another good revision technique that you can employ. This involves you learning a little information regularly, rather than trying to learn a lot in a single day. Recent research has found that the use of spacing resulted in a 10% to 30% difference in final test results compared to students who did lots of cramming. Spacing out you revision gives you enough time to forget previously learnt information, meaning that when this information is re-visited and re-learnt it is more likely to be transferred to you long-term memory.

Clothes Swap

The Clothes Swap will take place in the Tutorial block

on Tuesday 25th and Thursday 27th at lunch break
