Raise Your Grade

Raise Your Grade answers the question: ‘how to revise’ in a, lively and engaging walkthrough style. It gives students a practical, step-by-step, start-to-finish revision framework, PUMP: Plan, Understand, Memorise, Practise.

Written with GCSE and A Level students in mind, Raise Your Grade will enable all students, in all subjects, at all levels of study, to revise smarter and get the grades they want.

According to Google’s 2011 Zeitgeist study, ‘how to revise’ was the UK’s most popular how-to search. It is clear that GCSE and A Level students are on a quest for quality revision skills support. But the need for reliable, relatable guidance is not being met.

In designing the unique methodology in Raise Your Grade, Dr. Denise Gossage seamlessly pulls together learning from three sources of expertise:

  1. 30 of the UK’s most successful revisers: A-grade achievers, who had just taken a place at Oxford University.
  2. A full review of everything science has to say about revision, learning and memory.
  3. The latest insider knowledge from the exam-setters and markers themselves.

Clear, practical and actionable, Raise Your Grade spells out exam preparation for students like no other revision guide.
