Nairobi, Kenya… Saturday, 30th September 2017. 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, the 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 skilfully 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,” reiterated Mr. Mwazemba.
