Year 12s Inspire GCSE Students With Revision Tips

Year 12 Sixth Form students who gave a talk to Year 10 Tollbar Academy students about revision techniques. They are Ethan Elaisa, Alice Goodwin (Head Girl), Tilly Fairgrieve, James Dring (Head Boy) and Sophie Hepworth. The Year 10 students (front) are (l-r) Sophie Edwards, Pola Tarasewicz, Joe Holmes, Ethan Bennett and Max Taylor.

Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College Year 12 students have been inspiring Year 10 students at Tollbar Academy with tips on how to get the best out of their revision.

The older students, who are in their first year of studying for A Level exams, went through the GCSE exam process a year ago and are well aware of the techniques required to succeed. The Year 12s produced a video with tips from fellow students and members of teaching staff and chatted with the younger students.

Year 10 student Max Taylor said: "The Year 12s were confident to stand in front of us all and talk. The video was was good. It was about trying your best and not stressing too much about revision."

Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College Head Girl, Alice Goodwin, said: "The idea is to promote confidence in the students because we know what it is like when you are facing your GCSE exams. It can be very daunting and we wanted to show them that there are techniques you can use and ways of making revision work for you, and ultimately show them that you do come out the other side."
