The summer holidays are an important time for students to take a break and recharge their batteries – at the same time, parents often worry about academic regression which may make the start of the new academic year harder than expected.
Last summer, we shared a video from our lead tutor Vivek Gathani on managing academic regression. In the video, Vivek highlighted the importance of practising “little and often” in order to stay up to speed with the material studied in the previous academic year. You can watch the video here.
