Revision Tips

Posted : Thursday 28th March 2013

Short spurts of revision (20-25 minutes) are most effective. Your concentration lapses after about an hour.

Find a quiet place to revise - your bedroom, home, university, school or the library.

Make sure you don’t just revise the subjects and topics you like. Work on your weak ones as well.

Make your own revision notes, because you will remember what you have written down more easily. Stick keynotes to a cupboard or wall so you can see them everyday!

Re-write the key points of your revision notes, read them out loud to yourself. We remember more than twice as much of what we say aloud.

Use different techniques. Make your own learning maps. Use post-it notes to write key words on, create flash cards. Record your notes on tape and listen to them back on your MP3 or mobile phone.

Practise on past exam papers or revision tests available on the web.

You will need help at some stage; ask parents, teachers, or even friends.

Don’t get stressed out! Eat properly and get lots of sleep!

Believe in yourself and be positive.
