The National Finals Revision Weekend. An event that has successfully taken place in Wessex for the last two years and that has now become virtual. The aim is to teach students the highest yield topics in medicine (day one) and surgery (day two) efficiently and affordably using the reverse classroom method blended with interactive lectures given by recent graduates with an interest in medical education. Giving students direction for future revision and an incredibly valuable weekend packed full of revision material for a strong head start. Feedback for last year is available on the website under ‘past events’. This event is now of course completely virtual and will take place on the 12th and 13th of December. This year for the first time the team are supporting the charity 'Pencils of Promise'

This year, all profits will be donated to Pencil's of Promise
Pencil of Promise is different from most charities in that it mixes a humanitarian purpose with a smart business approach to ensure there’s a great ROI on every dollar spent. It funds its operations through financial support from private donors, events, and companies. This means that 100% of the money donated to Pencils of Promise goes directly towards helping the children in the countries the charity works in.
