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.
Week One Monday 6th April – Thursday 9th April 2020
Week Two Tuesday 14th April – Friday 17th April 2020
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, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Geography, Business Management, Spanish nd French.
- Higher Subjects: English, Maths, Chemistry, Biology, Human Biology, Physics, Business Management, Modern Studies, Geography, Spanish and French.

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, while practising exam style questions. 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.
