All students have been provided with a folder to organize their revision material alongside individual revision booklets for each module which will aid them in the creation of revision resources. Students are encouraged to focus on individual topics during each revision session and ensure their revision is active. This means creating revision resources such as mind maps and flash cards. Students should then use their revision workbook, as well as accessing past papers through the Corby Technical School website to test themselves on the subject they have just revised.

To encourage good practice student should use their cue cards to test their factual knowledge alongside creating more detailed revision notes/mind maps for each of the topics shown in the revision guides.

In addition, students are set a weekly practice question through “Show My Homework”. Students are given weekly questions to answer which should be completed under timed conditions to practice their exam technique. Students will receive weekly feedback on these and are expected to improve their answers where necessary to aid their progress.
