How to make the most of online tuition classes for revision purposes

With the GCSE 2024 exams coming, many students are gearing up their revision process to score their best. With the exams this close by, a lot of options are being made available to students for revision purposes, the most prominent of which are online revision courses.  

While it’s arguable whether it’s the best mode of revision out there, most students do prefer online crash courses as their fallback option. Our views on this deviate slightly from centre- while we agree that online crash courses are most suited for students who aren’t prepared well, we would also like to add that crash courses as a mode of revision should only be reserved for the subjects that you’re weakest at, and not as a general revision tool.  

While our opinion on this is arguable at best, we do remain firm on our stand when it comes using crash courses as a revision tool in general- it’s an absolute no-no, if you wish to score well in your GCSEs. 

GCSE 2024- Revision for GCSE exams

Why we stand firm on our point here is because crash courses are designed not to cater to your learning needs, but to make money. Commercialization of education at its finest- if you will. We firmly advise against enrolling in such courses, but in case you feel a brush-up would help your preparation, (which works only when you’re prepared enough- if we may add) it’s probably what’s best for you.  

That said, following are a few ways in which you can make the most out of an online revision course that you’ve enrolled in, if you so choose: 

  1. Take extensive notes during class: The best way to make the most out of a course designed to walk you through the basics of an otherwise extensive syllabus is to take extensive notes during class. This works in a two-fold way- the first, writing everything you’re being taught is an aid to memory in itself and secondly, it’s also the best way to revise a day before the actual exam, if you’ve taken the course because your preparation for a particular subject is subpar.  
  2. Ask the subject matter experts teaching the course if you can contact them for your doubts: The most common problem that arises out of enrolling for crash courses is during revision a day before the exam. Because you were underprepared with the subject to begin with, you’re liable to have more doubts in general. We would recommend you to stay in constant contact with your tutors throughout your revision process if they’re ok with it.  
  3. Organize your notes: While taking notes is important, organizing them so that you don’t get frazzled on the day before your exam is probably more important than that. While it’s relatively easy to take notes during class, keeping them organized so that you don’t have a hundred different sheaves of notes lying around is a task that you need to consciously keep abreast of. 

And that’s it- that’s our two cents on how you can make the most of crash courses for GCSE revision.
