Three surveys of school pupils, parents and teachers, carried
out by O2 Learn and Edcoms and released recently,
suggest that GCSE students across the UK are falling short of
teachers' recommended time spent on revision.
The surveys also suggest that although pupils make good use of
traditional approaches to revision, including notes from class and
the use of practice papers, too few students are taking full
advantage of the wide range of revision resources now
