Exam Busters with GCSEPod

Amalgamating two leading educational products

Exam Busters is our world class programme that builds enthusiasm for revision leading to improved exam performance. GCSEPod is taking the UK’s educational world by storm and is already credited with attributable increases in GCSE attainment.

What better way forward could there be than to amalgamate these two leading educational products to provide the best all-round study and revision tools for GCSE students?

The Exam Busters GCSEPod workshop is fast-paced, high-energy and highly interactive. Students are shown a range of techniques designed to improve memory and build an awareness of the importance of reflective practices and regular review – all of which can then be applied immediately and directly to the GCSEPods.

It provides a heightened sense of aspiration and self-belief promoting a positive attitude towards learning with immediate practical application.

Description

Ideal for Key Stage 4 students this highly-interactive, multisensory learning experience shows them how to prepare for exams, equips them with a range of very effective learning tools and exam preparation skills with immediate practical application through GCSEPod. It's a refreshing 2 hour learning to learn presentation for students proven to boost exam performance.

Run in your school hall to groups of 150 students at a time, this course also shows students how to reduce exam-related stress by preparing more efficiently.

Benefits

Students will leave the Exambusters GCSEPod workshop feeling energised, enthusiastic, prepared and will have a full understanding of precisely how to apply these new skills directly to their pods.

The skills learned in this workshop are skills for life: study, preparation, relaxation, stress reduction, organisation, mental & physical health and well-being – as well as BUSTING through revision and exams themselves!!

Especially useful for students in Key Stage 4 and above, this course will also benefit:

  • Students who do not know how to prepare themselves mentally and physically for exams.
  • Students who need to improve learning skills.
  • Students who need exam support.
  • Students who need more confidence to aspire higher.

"Jay’s enthusiasm, knowledge of the strategies, techniques and tips was excellent and was exactly what we were looking for at this time in Year 11 for our students and parents. It’s testament to Jay and the workshop as to how many pupils had told their parents about how much they enjoyed it and how useful they found it that some students were calling and texting their parents during the school day to say ‘Mum/Dad you need to come to the Parent’s workshop this evening!’ The strategies were relevant, easy to use, engaging and delivered in a way which will facilitate the students use of them as well. It was great to be given some resources by Jay in order to support the pupils through the revision process as the year goes on as well. I will look to rebook this event for next years, Year 11 at a similar time."
