Goodbye revision headaches

Overcome procrastination and reduce exam anxiety. Our tailor-made planning bundle will have your teen up and running in no time.

No fuss and no nagging!

Beat Procrastination

Courses are broken down into specific, bite-sized units. This minimises dither and delay! And is a visible to-do list, helping to focus attention.

Combat Stress

Students have a clear path to exam readiness. This gives them a sense of control which is key to reducing anxiety.

Adaptable Planning

Our approach works by being flexible to your teen’s life. It means that the whole process evolves, based on experience.

Create Routines

In the absence of motivation, structure and routine can help overcome those barriers to keeping going.

Monitor Progress

As a highly visible approach, students and parents know exactly how things are going. It also works by redefining success as something to be achieved each week.

Build Accountability

All too often study planning is something that happens by someone else, for teens. Our system helps them to take control in a sensible framework.

The sooner revision starts, the easier it is to retain knowledge and really excel in the exams. It’s easy to put it off, but there really is no time like the present to get going.

Hope is not a strategy

To really succeed in these exams, students should be on top of their studies from the outset. That’s not to say that every waking hour is spent working. But little and often is far and away the most effective study route.

With our bundles you and your teen will know exactly how much work there is. And you can plan accordingly.
