OFFICE PINBOARD

Alexandra: It's the Easter holidays and many UK boarding school students are home for the holidays enjoying Hong Kong sunshine and Sevens. For those with exams coming up there is also some revision to be done. My top three tips are:
1. Identify what you don't know and learn/revise that as a priority. This is more effective than spending time reminding yourself what you already know.
2. Work smart, not hard. Don't spend hours staring passively at your books or re-writing notes. Pose questions to yourself to answer, plan essays to address titles from past papers, construct a timeline of key history dates/events, explain a chemical process to someone else. They say you only really know a topic if you can explain it to a six year old and answer their questions!
3. Keep a balance of work, rest and play. You need to return to school for the summer term healthy, rested and ready to face the weeks ahead. Build in some fun, good food and exercise to your time in Hong Kong .......and sleep!
Good luck!

The first step in most UK school application processes is the academic pre-test. Students often have little to no prior experience of its format, so focused practice is essential in the run up to the assessment. In exciting news, British Tutors have secured a partnership with Atom Learning, who provide a computerised pre-test practice suite. We are happy to be able to offer exclusive pricing to our British Tutors clients: click the link below to find out more and take advantage of this offer! 📝
