Their intrinsic abilities can show a dramatic improvement during this period. They begin to write much more perceptive answers to questions. They may find it easier to remember facts, because these are now seen as fitting neatly into an overall picture of the subject. Revisiting is for deepening and extending learners’ knowledge and understanding. Revision is more about consolidating what learners already know and understand, and helping them to use this to fulfil the requirements of exams. 2nd year of the new courses – this moment is still to come…
