Elevate Education Focus on Revision Strategies with Year 11 and 13
This week Elevate Education returned to Victoria College to
share their wisdom of revision skills with students and parents.
Founded in 2001, Elevate has become an award-winning, global
provider of study skills programs. Working with over half a million
students across the US, the UK, Australia, South Africa, and
Singapore, Elevate has developed a proven track record of engaging
students, fostering critical thinking skills, and improving student
outcomes through an integrated process.
Through conducting more than 2000 interviews with students
across the spectrum of academic results, the research identified
that there are 17 areas where the techniques of the top students
differ from average and lower performing students. On-going
research for the past 13 years has continued to benchmark the
habits of top students.
Elevates study skills seminars, presented by young, recently
finished top university students, introduce students to these 17
'top students' skills, showing all students how they can replicate
the techniques and strategies of the students getting the best
marks each year.
The presentations provided our students with a clear focus and a
number of strategies to use over the coming weeks. Parents also
found their presentation extremely useful as they found the answer
to the following questions:
- How do I encourage my student(s) to motivate themselves, rather
than having to nag them?
- What do I say when I get the 'I have no homework'
- How do the top students approach holiday work and study
- How can I help them to stay calm and balanced around
- What work should they be doing to get the most marks?
- How do the top students approach things like Facebook, studying
with music and balancing social lives?
Many thanks to Elevate Education and also to Mrs Roussel (Senior
Teacher) for organising.
