Key EXAM COACH Terminology - TUNE INTO 👻SNAPCHAT👻 FOR MORE
A Town = the end goal. It’s where you’re headed, what you’re working towards, it’s that top grade. Whether it’s a letter or a number you’re trying to hit - A Town is that.
The Road To A Town = this is the journey, the graft, the hustle. It’s a long and winding road with speed bumps, pot holes and unexpected turns. But you have to stay the course and persevere…That’s what separates an A Towner from everyone else. A Towners go the distance and do things other students are not willing to do in order to achieve success.
Cruising Speed = that feeling you get when everything is going to plan and you’re getting stuff done. It’s that power hour at the desk, a well executed daily routine, a cracking week where things go to plan…You get the idea.
Brain Fuel = the foods we need to help us perform and think at our highest level.
Liquid Thinking = water isn’t just water. It’s liquid thinking. Keep topped up and hydrated to sustain optimum performance.
🚌 Knows (say Coach knows) = it’s my way of saying I’ve been there and done it. I wouldn’t be telling you all of this stuff or helping students work through The 7 Day Exam Plan unless I had 100% confidence that it helps and improves their exam performance. All the things I recommend I’ve done myself, I don’t talk about what I don’t know, only what I do know. 🚌Knows. 😉
Power Sesh = a good revision session. The information is sinking in and staying there and you’re excited to get stuck into the next sesh.
20 Minute Stress Reliever = exercise. You need to get this done daily in order to relieve stress. It’s as simple as that. You don’t need to go running marathons everyday, but you do need to get a quick 20 minutes in daily.
