    Planning for Exam Success

    An agile approach to organisation

    Often studying fails because the approach is too rigid. Our method focuses on what’s possible and uses feedback to adapt. And making it really obvious what needs to be done to be exam ready.

    Planning. Simple.

    Leaving GCSE results to chance is never going to be a winning mindset. 

    Our approach delivers confidence through straightforward breakdown of the work that has to be done. 

    No surprises and no panicking. 


    Real world tools.

    Do you find yourself worrying if your child is doing enough, or isn’t on top of their studies?

    With The Study Buddy it’s really clear to see what’s got to be done and what is in plan. 


    An unworkable plan is no good to anyone.

    A great plan needs to be based on achievable goals. And it should be realistic.

    You can’t set them in stone. But you can determine with magnets and our buddy board!

    If you ask any exam facing student whether they want to fail, they will tell you they don’t. Of course. And invariably they’ll know that to not fail (but especially to do well) they have to revise a bit. But strangely this acceptance doesn’t always translate into...
