Back to School; Getting Organised
It’s Back to School already so what is your Revision strategy this year?
S-cool have been working hard over the summer to help get you on track and make a revision plan.
Making a revision plan early will help you make sure that you have amble time to cover all subjects. GCSE students know that there are usually 8-12 subjects to revise, which equates to three months of revision.
Ask your teacher for the exam dates or you can search online through the Interboard Examination Timetable.
GCSE and A level results poll
A recent series of S-cool polls asked students what results they received for their GCSEs and A-Levels. An even 24% received A* in both GCSE and A-level results, while 56% of GCSE takers and 27% of A-levellers received A-B grades.
The national average for those that achieved an A* or A grade in A-levels was 25.9%

Why an apprenticeship?
Brought to you in association with Milkround
When apprenticeships are mentioned, the expression “earn while you learn” crops up a lot. And with good reason as well - when you are an apprentice you get paid in order to become proficient at a job. Essentially companies are investing in people, moulding them to be the kind of worker they want to be a part of their business.
Over 50% not confident when it comes to their Exams
With exam season fully upon us S-cool decided to ask our users how confident they felt about their exam success.
Over 50% said they were not confident while only 5% said they were very confident about their exam prospects. However, while 24% were quietly confident that they would pass their exams, 20% had no idea how they would do.
