Focus NOW for Exams – Cameron Parker – I normally say it’s never too late for your students to get in the right mindset for their exams. Well, I guess it is too late when I receive message after message the night before exams, saying they haven’t done any revision. However, I do believe the earlier we can grab the students’ attention, the better. Here is a prime example from a Priory City of Lincoln Academy year 9 student:
“I’m one of the year 9 students at City school from yesterday, I just wanted to thank you for coming in to talk to us and that you have inspired me and a couple others to really focus on our exams”
Messages like this really put a smile on my face and they do really stand out for many reasons; not just because it is a positive message about how my motivational service has helped them, or the fact that they have taken time out of their schedule to send me a message, but because they have mentioned EXAMS!
They are in year 9, going into year 10, and if they transition over with that same mindset then they will be on the right track to achieve great things. I understand there is still a lot of work to do; this is only the beginning, but through continuous follow-up and resources I provide, I am confident they will maintain motivational levels throughout the next 2 academic years.
It makes my job and teachers jobs easier when the exams come crashing down on the students, because by the time this happens, the work is nearly done and the focus will then be more on reducing stress and pressure, instead of panicking to get the last-minute revision in.
I hope I have got my point across to you all. If you are a teacher, get your students motivated as soon as possible. If you must, then resource this out to other individuals – I know a great person who can do this for you, haha! And if you are a student, watch my videos and follow me on social media, as I post on them every day.
Teachers, if you are looking for impact and value in your school, then email me personally on firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
