Tuition is all about covering the breadth of the syllabus and acquiring knowledge. But, to have the confidence you need to attempt exam standard questions, a revision course is your best option.
Revision is all about applying that knowledge to exam questions and learning how to get the most marks out of the time you have. Tuition without Revision is like studying for your driving theory test and learning how to use a car, but never getting behind the wheel to put your knowledge into practice.
5 reasons why you shouldn’t skip a revision course
1. You’ll miss out on guided question practice
Not sure where to start with a question? Hear from a tutor on how to approach a question, what to look for and how to get the most out of the time you have available as they guide you through exam questions as well as giving you the opportunity to have a go yourself.
2. It’s important to experience a different approach
Tutors may have different approaches to calculations or questions that may suit you better than the tutors you have heard from so far on your tuition course. It’s these little hints and tips that you miss out on by not completing a tutor-led revision course
3. It will be more difficult to practise to time
It can be difficult to find the time at home to sit and practise a question to time. Dedicating yourself to practicing to time, in the right environment is so valuable. It allows you to understand how time-pressured the real exam can be and forces you to think about strategies for how to deal with this. This is why during a tutor-led revision course, the tutor will ask you to attempt questions to time so you can gauge how you will do within a time limit.
4. You’ll miss out on having your questions answered in real-time
Rather than wait on a reply to an email when time is precious during revision, in a tutor-led revision course you can ask your tutor questions and get an immediate response so you can move on with your revision.
5. You won’t pick up on mistakes made by other students
Making mistakes during revision is so valuable as you can learn from them and you are less likely to make them again. During our revision courses, we take in a question for marking and will provide feedback individually, but also as a group so we can learn from what everyone did well and what everyone could improve on.
