Top grades are more important than ever
We offer Support for National 5 Higher and Advanced Higher
Our Glasgow Easter Revision Courses are an excellent opportunity for students to accelerate their exam preparation
With the SQA exam period fast approaching, thorough revision is necessary. To achieve top grades in exams students, must revise during the Easter break. Despite their best intentions, it can be difficult for students to possess the willpower and discipline to work effectively during the holidays.
Glasgow Easter Revision Courses are led by a subject specialist, working with small groups of students, providing structure, revision materials, exam practice and support. Attending Easter school can help students achieve excellent examination results.

Easter School has moved from the Livingstone Tower where we have run courses for a number of years and we will now host courses at our new home within the Strathclyde Business School (SBS) Building
course structure and teachers
Easter revision courses take place over a four day period and consist of a daily tutorial session, each 2 hours in duration, and combine intensive revision with examination practice.
All of our tutors are experienced school teachers and many are also SQA markers and therefore offer a wealth of experience and knowledge of exam technique to our students. For each subject, the teachers have put together a course which covers the key areas that students need to concentrate on in preparation for their May exams.
Our courses allow students to speak directly with teachers, and to ask questions about their revision. We take students away from the distractions of the home and help them to plan and execute their revision in a focussed environment.
We’ve always had excellent feedback from our students. Not only do they tell us that they felt much more prepared for their exams, they also tell us that their confidence levels increased dramatically after attending the course.
We cover the following subject
- National 5 Subjects: English, Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
- Higher Subjects: English, Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Human Biology, Business Management, Modern Studies and Geography.
- Advanced Higher: Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

How can an Easter revision course help?
To be successful in summer exams, revising at Easter is very important. We know, however, that it’s difficult to conduct self-led learning during the school holidays. Attending an Easter revision course is an excellent way to get the ball rolling.
Not only do these courses focus students’ attention on revision, they also give them a structure to follow, and the chance to practice sitting the exams. Easter revision courses have a significant positive impact on performance. Once students are firmly on the right path, they can make the best use of their evenings and weekends throughout the spring term.
What happens on an Easter revision course?
During a course, students can expect to conduct intensive study in a small group. They can expect their revision to be led by an experienced educator, and to finish the course amazed at how much content they’ve covered.
Not only do our courses provide students with lots of exam practice, they also give them valuable feedback on what the exam boards are looking for. This insight gives them a much more confident and guided approach to learning. By the end of the course, the wheels of revision will be in full motion, and students will find their summer term much less daunting, and easier to manage.
Aims of the courses
Our courses have very clear aims, which are as follows:
- Give students confidence in their revision plan, and their ability to achieve their potential;
- Develop students’ subject knowledge, and plug gaps in understanding;
- Develop students’ exam techniques;
- Develop students’ revision techniques;
- Identify, and tackle development areas.
WORDS From students and parents
The way we covered the whole course in a few days was helpful with the assistance of tutors / teachers.
I liked how the course was handled - we covered everything in-depth, but still at a quick pace.
The approach used to tutor us with the use of PowerPoints was very useful. The questions and answers books are also good for revision
I enjoyed the in-depth explanations of certain aspects of the course.
Very helpful, went over a lot of the course and quickly covered everything I was worried about, was asked what we wanted to go over and got to take home PowerPoint on USB.
Very concise and concentrated learning. A good revision of everything. Also, small classes felt like there was more attention from the teacher.
I love the way things were described (especially in Chemistry). The teachers were all enthusiastic about teaching their subject which helped a lot because my teachers at school aren't like that.
Good teachers, learnt a lot, nice class.
Very helpful teachers, willing to answer any questions, concise and informative teaching.
The material handed out are excellent and not too simplistic which is great. The key areas covered really hit the nail on head with regards to where students struggle most. I left feeling I could achieve a much higher RUAE.
The teachers enhanced my understanding of how to answer questions better.
It helped me to understand the questions better and feel more confident.
We went over every aspect of the RUAE paper in-depth
The location was easy to access from the train station. I obtained assistance with work and explanations.
Helped improve understanding and how to tackle exam style questions.
Good way to revision, teacher was helpful.
Gives good resources and information and teacher is very good/informative. Also, gives an idea of what places you are comfortable with or need to work on.
Going over all the units again aided my understand more clearly.
Chemistry and Maths tutors were very helpful with the use of technology to understand difficult subjects
It helped out with my knowledge, did more here that I would have done at home.
