This programme consists of 14 LIVE webinars, each approximately 30 minutes long. Specific, targeted revision for the Scottish National 5 exam.

These topics have been identified (by the SQA) as areas that students find the most challenging in the National 5 final exam.

Why This Works

These regular, focussed, short sessions allow your son or daughter to get the most from revision. They target the areas where students lose marks in the exam. Your child can pick up more of these marks.


The price of 14 LIVE webinars, ON DEMAND replays, 2 Zoom Q & A Calls and private Facebook group membership is £375.


Remember, the programme isn’t for everyone. Your child should be keen on Chemistry and be willing to work. They should also regularly achieve 40% or more in class exams.
