5 fundamental areas of exam preparation:

  2. Focus: Develops students’ concentration and helps them to avoid unnecessary distractions.
  3. Effort: Empowers students to make sacrifices and put the hardwork in.
  4. Motivation: Taps into students’ inner driving force and maintains enthusiasm.
  5. Revision: Advances students’ revision strategies, to help them get the most out of their revision.

What do teachers say about this resource? (8202)

The educational value of this resource is vast. The activities can be used for all levels of learner but could also easily be added to tutor time in order for students to reflect on their individuality and achievements. Through simple reflection and identifying their strengths students can plan to work on their weaknesses. I feel that this resource can be easily applied to any level of learner and any specification.

The activities certainly reinforce learning... it can be generalised for all students who are taking exams and using the [sports] principles it describes can be extrapolated for better success in all exams the students are taking. This is a really good idea.
