William Wadsworth was the featured expert for The Times series on exam preparation, spanning 4 columns in the Weekend supplement and a fifth online-only summary (The Times Revise and Shine: The Exam Survival Guide).

In his time at Hymers College (1999-2008), William achieved 6 A grades at A level and 10 A* grades at GCSE, receiving the Pramila Parekh Award for Top Academic Achievement. He was also part of the Young Enterprise team Force-7, who were awarded first place at the National Finals in their year. William went on to study Natural Sciences at Cambridge, with a Psychology specialism, where he earned a First Class degree.

William founded the Exam Study Expert research house and training company in 2018, combining his twin passions for exam success and entrepreneurship, to help the next generation of students ace their exams with the cognitive science of memory and the psychology of high performance.

William's two books (Outsmart Your Exams and Outsmart Your Studies) have topped Amazon bestseller charts in their categories in multiple countries, and his podcast and blog (at Exam Study Expert) are trusted by well over 1,000,000 students around the world every single year. Exam Study Expert's speakers and tutors are in high demand for their study strategy workshops and coaching at schools across the UK.

William is also an active researcher on the science of effective learning, partnering with academics at the Washington Memory Lab to run the largest-ever programme to monitor the uptake of evidence-based study methods in the UK, the Revision Census. Now in its fourth year, the programme has surveyed some 50,000 students, with findings presented at several prestigious education industry conferences, including ResearchED and the Independent Schools Association (ISA) Heads' Conference. William and his colleagues have been invited to present an academic paper on their research at the British Education Research Association (BERA) this autumn.

He'd like to wish any current GCSE and A-level students every success with their remaining exams this summer!
