About These Revision Sessions

These Science Student Revision sessions will give students the final edge and boost for their final preparations for the upcoming 2020 examinations.

They concentrate on the key points students need to be concentrating on to maximise their success in the exams – exam techniques & tactics, reinforcement of key essentials for the exam, what examiners expect to see, sample responses and, of course final revision tips.

Sessions can be focused to groups of Grades 7/8/9 students as well as groups of Grades 4/5 students as well as full cohorts of students. Contact us today at online@keynote.org.uk or call 01625 532974 to book these revision sessions.
