Exam Revision tips!



"How to study
1. There is no ‘right way’ to revise, as long as the method you choose enables you to gain a solid grasp of key facts and consolidate your knowledge. Some students are happy to read their classroom notes from start to finish, others prefer to simplify the information as much as possible, turning everything into skeleton notes, diagrams or mnemonics. In practice, most students find that mixing techniques suits the varied nature of the subjects being revised, and provides essential variety when studying.
3. Last-minute revision tips
Although time may be short, you can still make a difference to your grade. Try and prioritise; do what you can.
  • Use your revision tools (prompts, diagrams etc) to check final facts
  • Keep calm and consolidate your existing knowledge rather than trying to learn new topics
  • Don’t stay up all night revising; being overtired will not help you to do your best"
