Exam revision was given a twist at St Neots Community College when more than 100 pupils took part in a workshop aimed at making learning easier.
Organised by a group called Positively Mad (Make a Difference), the workshop included a range of exercises which, when mastered by the Year 10 students, are designed to be useful not only in their GCSEs but also other exams.
Kim Boxall, of Positively Mad, led the 14 and 15-year-olds through a variety of activities, including memory games, word association exercises, mind mapping and encouraging the use of both sides of the brain through multi-tasking work.
Head of Year 10 Jennie Hardie said: "The morning was a fantastic success.

"Our pupils gained so much from this project, and all these newly-acquired learning skills and techniques will not only help them in their school studies but also prove most useful in a variety of everyday activities."
