The impact of all of this on my students has been pretty good. I’m pleased to say that my AS level results were much better this year with far more students achieving top grades and making good progress. The exam results analysis showed that students performed better then the national average in most questions in the Psychology AS paper. At A2 level, the topic where these strategies had been applied the most was the one that saw the best results being achieved in the final exams. One student embraced these strategies fully and gained an A* grade, exceeding her grade B prediction. Most importantly, the impact of these strategies on students’ study skills and their ability to learn material has been extremely positive. They have learnt the importance of regularly revising from the start of the year and testing themselves through practice exam questions, flashcards and quizzes. They know and understand that memory is the residue of thought and they talk about testing and distributed practice when discussing their methods to revise. They have become better at studying because when it comes to revision, they now know what works and what doesn’t.
