Oxford University Press East Africa (OUPEA) has called on teachers and learners to adopt healthy revision techniques that build a candidates confidence and keeps them motivated to tackle exams with ease.

Speaking at the launch of the OUP’s third edition Q&A Revising series, held alongside the Nairobi International Book Fair 2017 at the Sarit Centre, Nairobi, General Manager, John Mwazemba noted: ‘’The run-up to exam season is a tense time. Students and teachers clock up extra hours as the revision timetable takes hold. Students should not be spending every waking hour cramming – the most effective revision is short, targeted bursts months before an exam.”

The 3rd Edition of the Q&A KCPE Revision series boosts the candidates’ confidence as they prepare for the KCPE examination. Each book in the series of six is packed with relevant notes, examples, exercises and model test papers.

The subjects covered include English, Mathematics, Science, Kiswahili, Social Studies and Christian Religious Education (CRE) The Revision series will enhance understanding and retention of concepts, and will expose the candidates to different types of examination questions.

The Q&A Revision series is thoroughly researched and skillfully written by teams of experienced authors, examiners and teachers. Some of the major features captured in the series include examination tips and guidelines, competence-based tasks, KCPE-grade questions and model test papers.

According to Oxford University Press, quality revision will ease the stress on students and teacher alike, striking the right balance to achieve exam success.

“Deliberate practice is what constitutes effective revision. The Q&A revision series will allow the candidate to revise in his or her own and also access short notes on the areas that he or she finds problematic,” said Mr Mwazemba.

During the launch, two pupils narrated the challenges they go through while preparing for exams

Patrice Mutua, a Class 7 pupil at Goodrich Schools, said: “During the exams time most students and teachers are tense and we spend alot of hours cramming, the revision series will enhance understanding and retention, I commend Oxford University Press East Africa for helping students adopt healthy revision techniques that builds our confidence.”

Donell Bikketti, who is also in Class 7 at Goodrich Schools, said: “I have established a revision routine of waking up early every morning to revise and doing frequent revision exercises, the third edition of the Q & A KCPE series allows me to use revision techniques that will lead to quality revision and keep me on track.””
