Easter Revision courses at Ashbourne

Ashbourne has been running a comprehensive programme of Easter Revision courses for more than twenty-five years and was the first college in London to establish such a programme. Our 2020 programme runs over a three-week period:

Week 1 – Monday 30th March – Friday 3rd April
Week 2 – Monday 6th April – Friday 10th April
Week 3 – Monday 13th April – Friday 17th April

Our intensive revision courses offer students structured, effective and efficient revision practice in small groups, rather than working passively and unsupervised at home. Students are given extensive past paper practice and draw on specimen questions and examiners’ reports to optimise their success in the final exams. During the classes students are able to consolidate what they have learned and get individual help on areas they are struggling with.

Following each revision course students receive a written report on their progress with constructive feedback on performance and how they might improve in the future. This helps inspire the necessary focus in the lead up to their final examinations.

 

Why Choose Ashbourne College Easter revision courses?
Our grandson was very ready to make a huge step from recluse, out­ of ­step with his age group, not knowing what to do with himself or how to relate to others, many of whom he found terrifying. He found travelling on the tube terrifying and trusted few people. Ashbourne has never pushed him too hard but has always encouraged every step he has taken towards what was sometimes a big risk for him. He has learned to respect himself as a learner, to be realistic about his strengths and what he finds difficult, and is learning what to do about the things he finds difficult. He is becoming sociable, well­ informed good company, smiles 100% more than he did and travels to and from Ashbourne by tube without a qualm. He is punctual (or sends a message if held up). He is learning to trust the many good people he now recognises as on his side. He is very aware of how much Ashbourne has contributed to these huge changes and is looking forward to trying out University in September, becoming a student, knowing lots of other people will arrive by different routes. A real success story/work in progress. Thank you Ashbourne
