Exams/Psychology: How Can Educational Psychology Help You Pass Exams? With 1 University (TBC)
April 30 @ 13:30 - 14:15
In this interactive webinar, we will look at what psychologists know about how memory works and how this can be used to help students understand the topics they are studying and help them pass exams.
Using concepts from A level Psychology and other equivalent courses, these points will be illustrated alongside short interactive exercises for students to practise the ideas.
The session is therefore ideal for students studying Psychology who will be able to see how concepts they are studying can be applied to understand how students perform in exams, as well as helping them to consider their own approach to preparing for and taking exams. While the session will derive its theory from Psychology, it will be delivered in a way that will be relevant for all sixth formers.
Suitable for: Year 12s and Year 13s. It will be particularly relevant for students studying Psychology and/or thinking about studying Education or Psychology at university. However, its content will also be relevant and accessible for students studying, and taking exams in, other subjects.
Preparation/Pre-Reading: There is no preparation or pre-reading required for this session although students are encouraged to consider the challenges they face with exams and questions they might like to ask relating to these, or to further study at university.
The IT Setup: The IT setup will be different depending on whether schools are open or closed as a result of COVID-19 and therefore whether students will access the session at home or at school. We will update this section nearer the time when we have a clearer idea.
Booking a Place: This is free for schools and colleges. Please do express interest here
We will contact you nearer the time with further details about how to connect in to the session.
