Planning regular revision and exams practice come naturally to few students. Most of us find it difficult to get the balance right between doing too much or too little revision - or simply starting too late and causing major stress just before the exams. In addition to well planned revision at home, attending an intensive residential revision course offers some distinct advantages and takes the headache out of exam preparation.
At Oxford Science Studies our courses are designed to give students the best conditions for gaining confidence in their subject, learning exam techniques and getting ahead of the game. The structured daily timetable helps students to strike the right balance between revision, study sessions and relaxation and socialising. Students are able to break subjects into smaller sections allowing them to concentrate on specific problems which can be difficult in a normal classroom environment. Last but not least, revising together with other motivated students in the inspiring environments of Oxford can be rewarding and fun:
"Everything about the course was fantastic - the food, the accommodation, the surroundings and the amount I learnt. Chemistry and Biology are among my biggest weaknesses, yet I felt I gained most from my teachers in these subjects. I cannot wait to return, I am so grateful for the confidence, and pleasure, the course gave me."
