To help your students improve their memory-recall techniques before their exams, it’s vital to understand the essential role of memory in learning. Misconceptions are often based on rote learning and memorisation, or the mistaken notion that remembering mere titbits of knowledge is pointless in the electronic era of Google.
Looking for GCSE and A Level revision courses in London? Harrow School revision courses are held for ten days annually over the Easter holidays.
Harrow School Easter Revision Courses are suitable for students taking GCSE, IGCSE and A Level exams during the 2019 Summer term. They are designed to improve candidates’ grades by increasing their knowledge, refining their examination technique and by boosting confidence.
Over 90% of our students felt more confident after attending our courses last year. Many of our tutors teach at Harrow School all year round, and others teach at other reputable schools such as The John Lyon School (The same foundation as Harrow School), Radley College, Merchant Taylors’ School and Roedean School. All are selected by the same academic criteria as permanent Harrow School member staff.
The courses are easily accessible to anyone in Greater London or the Home Counties as the School is located approximately ten miles from the centre of London. Harrow on the Hill Station (Metropolitan and Chiltern Lines) is only a ten-minute walk away and offers easy connections to Central London as well as the Chilterns. South Harrow station (Piccadilly Line) is also close by.

Do you want to study a GCSE course from home?
Studying a GCSE at a school or typical college can tie you down to a rigid, frustrating 9-5 style of learning which may not be suit you, particularly if you have a job and want to keep working as you study.
Studying from home is a flexible way of gaining a recognised qualification. You’d be able study at times that suit you – just think about how much easier studying a GCSE could be if you weren’t tied down to set hours and could still do what you want, when you want – study your course when you want to.
Ashbourne has been running a comprehensive programme of Easter Revision courses for more than twenty-five years and was the first college in London to establish such a programme. Our 2019 programme runs over a three-week period:
Week 1 – Monday 1st April – Friday 5th April
Week 2 – Monday 8th April – Friday 12th April
Week 3 – Monday 15th April – Friday 19th April
Our intensive revision courses offer students structured, effective and efficient revision practice in small groups, rather than working passively and unsupervised at home. Students are given extensive past paper practice and draw on specimen questions and examiners’ reports to optimise their success in the final exams. During the classes students are able to consolidate what they have learned and get individual help on areas they are struggling with.
Following each revision course students receive a written report on their progress with constructive feedback on performance and how they might improve in the future. This helps inspire the necessary focus in the lead up to their final examinations.

For A level and GCSE students, Easter revision is one of the most important dates in the calendar.
We’ve been running Easter Revision courses for more than 25 years. Over 1,500 students now attend MPW Easter Revision courses each year.
Easter Revision courses are a great way of getting the bulk of your revision done early but expect to be worked hard. The revision is structured for you with the emphasis in the right places and lots of practice on past papers.
Full specification A level revision courses (reformed specifications) involve studying one subject solidly for a week.
By contrast, up to two GCSE revision courses, two AS revision courses (legacy specifications), two A2 revision courses (legacy specifications) or two end-of-Year 12 revision courses (reformed specifications) may be studied each week.
At MPW, A level Easter Revision courses are for a particular board and specification, so you’re in groups where everyone is studying exactly the same specification. That might influence the Easter Revision courses that you choose to take with us.
- Week 1: Monday 1 April – Friday 5 April
- Week 2: Monday 8 April – Friday 12 April
- Week 3: Monday 15 April – Friday 19 April
Why do A level Revision Courses?
Summer examinations are of pivotal importance for lower-sixth as well as upper-sixth students. For Year 12 students, regardless of whether the examinations are internal or external, their results will have considerable influence on their UCAS references, predicted grades and even sometimes the subjects that they are permitted to pursue into Year 13. For Year 13 students themselves, under the reformed specifications university and career prospects hinge on the results obtained in a single sitting at the end of a linear course.
Why do GCSE Easter Revision Courses?
GCSE results have always been an important milestone but their significance today is greater than ever. Government led reforms mean that the examinations are now more challenging. Schools and colleges are also raising their requirements for sixth-form entry. Furthermore, with A levels now linear, university tutors are paying much closer attention to applicants’ GCSE grades. Not surprisingly, students are keen to ensure that their exam preparations are as comprehensive and streamlined as possible during the final few weeks before their examinations begin.
