In house exam revision tailored to your needs
Ali regularly visits schools and colleges to provide bespoke revision for students, typically focusing on exam technique for both AQA and Edexcel exam boards, and is able to accommodate your school / colleges timings and make it either a half or whole day's revision.
A typical day at A level involves getting both Y12 and Y13 to attend in the morning for paper 1 and general revision / exam technique, and then just have the Y13 present in the afternoon for paper 2 and paper 3 revision. At GCSE the focus would be on Paper 1 (am) and paper 2 (pm) or whatever suits you and your students best Sessions are fully interactive and focus on exam technique rather than content, resources will be provided.
Other colleges also get the students to contribute to the cost. Bookings for dates over Easter and February / May half term are popular as demand is high and it also prevents students being pulled out of other lessons which some staff prefer. Twiilight sessions are also available.
Outcomes of the day:
Increased understanding of assessment demands for each exam paper
Understood current and common issues from a senior examiner’s perspective
Received key feedback from recent A level and GCSE examinations
Taken part in a range of interactive activities to fully understand content
Understood examiner insight and teaching ideas to raise student attainment
Will leave the day fully motivated to revise and properly prepared for the exam
This is an excellent opportunity for your students to absorb the necessary examination skills from someone who has supervised the marking of thousands of candidates’ exams over the last 13 years.

When told about the talk I thought it was going to be very boring but I actually found the talk so beneficial. I learnt so much about structuring the answers & how I should answer them. He was super engaging & motivating.Shebbear College Devon, April 2019
Ali is an inspirational speaker who combines expertise with enthusiasm, and knowledge with humour. When Ali came to talk to our students he kept them completely engaged, interested and enthusiastic for three full hours. All came out saying that they had learnt a great deal and that they had enjoyed the experience and wanted more. I thoroughly recommend Ali for his wit, expert knowledge and imaginative delivery. We will certainly be inviting him back.Landau Forte College Derby, May 2013
I enjoyed listening to everything he had to say, but also thought that everything he told us was very relevant. He was so cheerful and made everything he said very exciting to listen to, even though it was about exams.Shebbear College Devon , April 2019
