Boosting Memory Performance
In Elevate’s surveys with High School students, we find that 70% of students leave themselves only 1 week to prepare for major exams, and within this week, the bulk of their preparation activity is focused on the wrong material. Students find themselves rote learning material and focusing too heavily on making note-summaries, rather than focusing on higher value tasks.
This was the case for Sean, who had an Elevate Coach come in to help him develop his pre-exam strategies.
Sean's Focus Areas
See Sean, his mother Renee and his Coach Maddy talk about how they used memorisation techniques to help Sean plan for exams and retain information.
"The last 12 weeks have been a lot of fun. I've probably learnt more about memory techniques...in the last 12 weeks than i have in the last 12 years."Sean B.Year 11 Student
