Holiday Revision Courses
Why should you attend a holiday revision course?
With university admissions looking for students who are passionate about their subject and show dedication to learning, it is important for high school students to find ways to distinguish themselves and prove they are committed to academic rigour. Attending a revision course or summer school is the perfect way to do this. Not only does it demonstrate enthusiasm for one’s chosen subject, but it also gives students the prospect of developing academic and professional skills. Furthermore, it is the perfect opportunity to try out subjects that are usually not offered at school, as well as experience a university environment for the first time.
University presents a huge shift from high school, and as a result, it necessitates extensive preparation, often beyond what can be provided in school. As a result, students (and their parents) frequently spend the holidays perfecting the skills that will help them excel in university and in their future jobs.
