YEAR 11 pupils at Longsands College in St Neots have been given tips on how to improve their memory and revision techniques in preparation for their GCSE exams.
Imagining there is a banana on your head may not seem like the most sensible thing to do, but according to Roy Layton, of Independent Thinking, it is a method that can boost your memory.
He said: "By engaging all your senses and imaging what the banana would smell like, look like, taste like and feel like, you are able to easily remember things about the banana. This can be applied to any object and any revision subject."
According to Mr Layton, this can help students improve their memory while revising.

George Huckle, a Year 11 pupil who attended Mr Layton's lecture said: "I found the talk really easy to follow. He made everyone laugh and made everything relevant. His tips will help me with my revision as I will relate things to my senses and hopefully be able to remember more."
Deputy principal, Rick Carroll said: "The college has continued to improve its A to C grades over the last three years, up from 65 per cent to 81 per cent. This is brilliant news for the school and we believe by working closely with students to teach them memory skills and revision techniques we can increase grades further.
