Oxford Revise Science:
The Revision Project

The Oxford Revision Project has one mission: to find the secret to revision success!

Our crack team has worked together to trawl the research and pool their expertise and insights. They've built the insights into our newest publishing - the ultimate, evidence-based revision guides.

We've collated links to research and blog posts on the topic which have got us thinking. Scroll down to browse them for yourself and to meet the panel members.

We are delighted to announce that Oxford Revise has been awarded 4 stars for Curriculum Impact in the Teach Secondary 2021 awards. Entries were judged on how well they met a genuine need, their ease of delivery, adaptability and value for money.
