Whether you’re studying for an exam or revising for a presentation, a quiz on identifying different learning methods promises to help you maximise the amount of information you can retain.

Meanwhile auditory learners prefer listening to instructions, while read/writers prefer to write things down and recite them.

Speaking about how the quiz can benefit each individual, the founder of Tutor House Alex Dyer, said: ‘Exam season is not an easy time of year, so we’re happy to help students work out the best way for them to revise.
‘Every individual is different, and I think it’s important that we acknowledge that not everyone absorbs information the same way.
‘Unfortunately most schools do not cater to different learning styles, so a lot of the time it’s up to the students themselves to adapt their learning.’
So are you using the best revision style for your personality?
