Lewis Capaldi will be helping students to revise with a new radio show

Scots singer Lewis Capaldi is among the new presenters joining Classic FM for a series of programmes dedicated to helping school pupils and students study for their exams.

With Highers, GCSEs, A-Levels and University exams on the horizon for many young people across the country, Revision Hour will air from 9pm to 10pm on Saturday nights.

Capaldi will host the first programme in the series, airing on Saturday April 27. As well as playing classical music specifically chosen to help aid concentration, he will focus on the myths about revision and what does – and, crucially, doesn’t – work.

The 22-year-old, who launched his first arena tour earlier this week, said: “I’m absolutely buzzing to be hosting a revision show for Classic FM. I definitely could’ve used some advice like this a couple of years back when I was doing my exams!

“Anyone tuning into the show can expect lots of lovely sensual classical music delivered by my extremely handsome dulcet tones with some tips thrown in from people far more qualified than me – which isn’t difficult!”

Bastille’s Dan Smith and Capital presenter Vick Hope will also be hosting two programmes each, with more presenters to be announced.

The show sees Classic FM team up with The Student Room, the UK’s largest online student community with 10 million users a month, to support exam-takers through what can be a challenging and difficult time.

Each week, the programme will focus on a different theme, including managing exam stress, beating procrastination, last-minute cramming and dealing with exam panic.

In each episode, the presenter will play classical music by the all-time greats such as Mozart and Beethoven, to modern composers including John Williams and Ludovico Einaudi, whilst offering practical advice and tips from The Student Room – all related to the week’s theme.

Further resources and help for students will be provided online throughout the series.

Pete Langley, The Student Room’s director of study help, said: “We know that this period of time for students, as they prepare for and start their exams, can be stressful and overwhelming.

“Our partnership with Classic FM on this new series will help provide an additional outlet and haven for students.

“In a unique way, the series brings together classical music, to aid relaxation and concentration, with advice and tips from some of our leading experts on studying.

“Revision is all about balance and we believe everyone could benefit from giving themselves an hour every Saturday to tune in to Classic FM’s Revision Hour.”
