Year 11 Study Skills Day

A pair of young and dynamic recent graduates marveled at the eager participation and dedication of Year 11 students at Meridian High School on 16th December as they engaged with a series of workshops, activities, seminars and presentations designed to enhance student’s independent study skills, exam preparation and motivation.

Students were introduced to concepts such as ‘Memory and Mnemonics’ in order to ‘ace’ their exams by our successful young visitors who capped off their own successful educational journeys by signing up as mentors and experts in the vital field of independent study skills to share their ‘insider’ tips to help ensure our students hit their targets.

A large majority (73.4%) of students who took part felt that a key benefit was having young, presenters from outside school delivering the sessions. Students comments included:

‘Steve was very helpful’

‘I think my memory is better now’

‘it was more involving and fun to do’

‘I found more useful revision tips here’

‘the man gave us some good tips and he was funny’

‘it widened my knowledge’

‘it helped me understand the different ways to remember key points of learning’

‘I know how to revise better with different methods’

‘it taught me about the mind and how it memorises’

‘it helped me understand how to revise’

‘my memory is good but it can be better’

Students were also given access to the amazing revision app ‘GCSEPod’ and have been logging on regularly to undertake highly focused and targeted independent interventions to improve their grades and ‘plug’ any gaps.

76% of students rated GCSEPod as good to outstanding after just one session using the app with more than 83% rating it as easy or very easy to use and 74.8% saying they planned to use the app regularly to support their revision.

Key benefits identified by our students included: ‘It’s organized and easy to see what to focus on’ and ‘it has all the information useful for my GCSEs.’

All in all, Study Skills Day proved a hit with Year 11 students who made sure they got the most out of this incredible opportunity.
