Revision time.

It’s time for GCSE revision. Time to revise for the exams that are looming fast after the Easter holidays. Time to focus on being something in the world that holds weight through a grade.

If you have a young person about to sit exams, remember to cut them some slack over the coming months. They have a lot going on in their heads to deal with and the best thing you can do as a parent is to be that wall for them to bounce off.

And don’t forget to tell them that this isn’t the end of the world, it’s just the beginning. Even if the sun is shining outside and they’re stuck in a stuffy exam hall, it will be over very soon.

  1. I remember those days well. Delivering a continual supply of food & snacks to a revision covered room is a must, plus lots of listening & encouraging. It’s certainly a full on time for young folk.

  2. I rememberd a little while ago, that it’s been 30 years ago as we speak, that i did my exams at school… 1989…. How fast time goes en flies away, right outside the window. And yes, tell her, it’s just te beginning 😉



  3. Maltesers got my daughter through… and her sitting on my bed right up to two minutes before she left the house, trying to grasp “the unique properties of the capillaries” ( “Gaseous exchange, ” in case you’re wondering…old blood gets turned into fresher stuff, a but like a recycling centre, but ” gaseous exchange” was all she needed). She was so amazed when she came home from her Science GCSE that it had come up in the paper! Considering it had been in every paper probably since it was discovered, I was just relieved the maltesers and bedside drilling had worked! It was 17 years ago, we both still remember! One good thing about exams, at least in England, you finish school before everyone else, so get a longer, much needed holiday. Good you all x
