The Confident & Successful Student = Excellent Study Habits

The first three years in secondary school are essential for setting up a student’s academic career for success and cultivating a positive attitude toward learning.  Laying a solid foundation, including organisational skills, time management and taking responsibility for their actions, leads to school success. Research indicates a strong correlation between study habits and test results*. In fact, many students fail not because they lack ability but because they do not have adequate study skills.

#1 Top Tip  
🔎 Identify and develop your primary learning style 

 

One of the first activities in our Study Skills course is guiding students to recognise if auditory, visual, or kinaesthetic learning techniques are most effective for them personally. Tailoring study around these preferences makes a real difference to memory and enjoyment of revision!
