The Feedback

  • “It was great (but a little bit scary) to see my habits so clearly. At least I have the chance to make some changes now.”

  • “Practising so many different revision methods in the session was really helpful. Because the presenter taught us how the methods work, it made me trust the methods. I will definitely use some of them.”

  • “One of our aims is to become an outstanding school and for this we need to maintain top exam results. The 'Drive for Results' programme offered by Study Skills Zone is part of our annual plan to achieve this.”

    Keith Defter
    Headteacher, Commonweal School, Swindon
  • “This seems to have been just the boost our students needed. Exam techniques are necessary but, more than anything else, students need to believe in themselves – that they can achieve. This seems to have been a key message from today.”
