Cutting-Edge Revision & Exam Skills Programme with Video Workshops & Resources to Secure Exam Success in All Subjects

Effective revision can make up to 1.5 grades difference to exam results, but most students are not revising effectively.

Is your child studying for their exams? Do they feel overwhelmed by the sheer volume of material to be revised, and are struggling to know where to start? Are you fed up of nagging them but worried that if you back off completely they will not achieve their full potential?

Designed for students in years 10 – 13, our annual subscription gives your teenager access to our unique portal containing a programme of video tutorials and accompanying resources. 

Radical Revision is not…

  • The same old revision skills touched on in schools. Our bank of cutting-edge, proven strategies will engage even the most reluctant and anxious student.
  • Subject specific tutoring – our revision skills can help your child to exam success in all subjects.

An annual subscription to Radical Revision includes access to the Radical Revision online portal of video workshops & resources for a full academic year.

Each of the 6 workshops in the programme is available in pre-recorded format to be watched on-demand as many times as you wish. The portal also includes resources covering:

  • Getting Organised
  • Strengthening Memory
  • Keeping Calm & Staying Motivated
  • Exam Technique
  • Past Papers
  • Resources for parents

There is also a pre-recorded parent webinar ‘How to Be your Teen’s Best Revision Partner‘ & other useful resources for parents.

The programme of workshops is delivered by Claire Gadsby – an internationally renowned educational expert, author and past examiner.

Each session consists of 30 minutes of interactive revision, demonstrated and lead by Claire.
