 Helping your child through exams:


  • Help you child create a revision timetable (Download ours here).

  • Find a quiet place to devote to you child's study space.

  • Help them get a good supply of stationary together, such a postcard size note pages and coloured pens or highlighters to make studying more interesting.

  • Make sure they are taking regular breaks - you could plan things to do in the longer breaks, such as a walk to the shops or park, visiting family and friends, or doing exercise such as a game of their favourite sport.

  • Offer to listen to them read back their notes, test them, or time them doing a past exam paper, then mark it together.

  • Have plenty of snacks on hand - brown pasta, granary bread, nuts and fish are all good brain boosting foods.

  • Try and create a calm atmosphere around the family home for them.

  • Discourage them from staying up late, especially the night before an exam. 

  • Prepare a good breakfast on exam day
