A simple, easy to follow approach to revision.

Get your GCSE revision planning in hand

STRESS BUSTING

Not knowing where to start can be a source of anxiety for lots of students. And it’s stressful for parents too! 

EASY TO USE

The Study Buddy method is based on knowing exactly what you’ve got to study and when you’re going to do it.

TAILORED

We’ve broken down over 300 GCSE and Level 2 courses from 8 exam boards. Our revision sets reflect the courses that you are doing at school 

Revision can be overwhelming.
But it doesn’t have to be.

A few things the system is great at

The Study Buddy is an innovative way of managing a GCSE revision work load

TANGIBLE BENEFITS EVERY WEEK

Focuses the mind on short term goals. Achievable and satisfying.

BALANCE FREE TIME AND STUDY

The weekly schedule lets you plan out of school activities and the all important lie-ins!

CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT TO DO

A comprehensive backlog of course units lets you know what has to be done.

PARENT AS COACH, NOT TASK MASTER

The parental role becomes much more focused on support, not hassling.

SKILLS FOR THE FUTURE

The entire approach helps develop prioritisation and task management skills.

FLEXIBILITY AND CONTROL

A complete view of what needs to be done and power to schedule when to do it.

SIMPLE TO FOLLOW

The 5 step process is straightforward and highly intuitive.

OVERCOMES PROCRASTINATION

Allocating units to time slots overcomes the single biggest barrier to revision:”what next?”

CASE STUDY

Jake

Jake was a fairly typical teen. Bright and capable but if he didn’t find a way to focus on his revision he’d never do as well as he could. 

CONTROL

16 years old is a tricky age, not experienced enough to know how, but not so young as to willing take direction. The Study Buddy gives students the sense of control. They manage their own schedule and become accountable for working through their tasks.  

COMPREHENSIVE REVISION

Everyone has subjects that they prefer and it’s hardly a surprise that you might spend more time on those. For Jake he loved science, hated English Lit. Our sets are colour coded so it is easy to see at a glance if one subject is being favoured and others ignored.  

FLEXIBLE

The life of a teen can be unpredictable – parties and FIFA tournaments spring out of nowhere.  Planning a schedule weekly means that you can account for a social life and not feel constrained.

NAG FREE

No one wants to have someone on their backs the whole time. And parents don’t want that role either. The visual nature of the Buddy Board means that everyone knows what is meant to be worked on and when. No more asking “what should you be studying now?”
