Gemma Styles joins Classic FM’s landmark Revision Hour series




Writer, podcast host and mental health ambassador Gemma Styles is joining the line-up of Classic FM’s Revision Hour to present two programmes. The six-week series from the UK’s most popular classical music station is dedicated solely to students, to help them through the current exam period.

Gemma, who has 8.3 million followers on Instagram and 3.8 million on Twitter, will join Classic FM’s Revision Hour from this Sunday 22nd May, alongside other guest presenters in the series, including A&E doctor and UK Youth Mental Health Ambassador Dr. Alex George.

Broadcast on Sunday nights (9pm to 10pm) until 12th June, each hour-long programme will have a different theme based on the exam calendar, from managing stress and controlling exam panic to keeping exams in perspective and general wellbeing.

The third episode on Sunday focuses on last-minute cramming, what works and what doesn’t, and will feature a range of well-known classical music, including the William Tell Overture by Rossini, Chopin’s ‘Raindrop’ Prelude and John Williams’ score for E.T.

To help create the series and provide practical advice, tips and information, Classic FM has partnered with The Student Room – the UK’s largest online student community – which attracts 10 million student visitors each month. Further support and help for students, provided by The Student Room, will be available throughout the series at, with extra content posted on Classic FM’s social channels, including Instagram, TikTok and Facebook. All programmes will be available via Global Player.

“I am thrilled to become a presenter on Classic FM’s Revision Hour. I remember my own experiences of studying and exams, both at school and at university, so I know how beneficial this series is.

“I hope that I can be a friendly and comforting voice for students going through exams and – accompanied by some great classical music – offer a moment of calm and relaxation during what can be a stressful time.” - Gemma Styles

"We are excited to welcome Gemma to Classic FM’s Revision Hour as one of the presenters of the series. As a mental health ambassador, Gemma understands how students can feel during exams, and will be able to connect directly with our listeners.

“Along with advice from The Student Room, we hope that this series will help support, encourage and relax students over the coming weeks.” - Philip Noyce, Classic FM’s Managing Editor
