Preparing students for GCSE exams- Course Review

It’s been a long time since I have been on a geography course, but I jumped at the chance of going to meet Helen Young (please take a moment to look at the excellent resources on her Geography Geek website) who was delivering the GA course ‘Preparing students for GCSE exams’. The course was also based in Nottingham and within walking distance, which was a bonus!


Helen discussed a number of strategies she has used with her students to prepare them for exams, I was particularly stuck by her message that revision starts from the first day of the course. As a course leader she stuck a balance between delivering content and providing time for participants to develop their skills, with the opportunity to make revision videos and podcasts. I had a little time to remix one of her podcasts to a funky beat… Smile

Sadly it’s fully booked at the moment, but I’m sure the GA will run it again…
