WHERE

Our Revision classes will take place in the Cavan Crystal Hotel.

COST

A week of intensive revision classes from just €130.

Many parents, and students, ask us: Why should I choose Revise.ie’s Intensive Revision Courses? We always offer the same list of benefits:

  • We offer the best value for money available.
  • Our teachers are all experienced at giving these courses. Each class is intensive and detailed.
  • Students are given excellent guidelines for dealing with exam questions.
  • Professionally printed copy of excellent notes for each subject taken.

See if you can find anywhere else that combines great teachers, professional notes, Supervised Study sessions, and years of experience all in one package. No longer do students from South Leinster, North Munster, and all the border counties have to travel to attend courses. Revise.ie Kilkenny and Cavan have brought the courses to you.

We firmly believe that student focused learning is the most successful route to exam success. Too many students fall behind with conventional learning. Find out more about our Grinds Classes.

We have been talking, and listening, to our students for 10 years. Thanks to this constant evolution we know what today’s students really wants when it comes to preparing for their exams.
