Weather this is your first exam season or your third, we can all use some revision tips now and again to get us back on track.
So weather you’re just starting to make a revision time table or you’re coming to the end and just need a little extra support, we’ve got a tip for you.
We’re not here to nag but if all your friends have started revising then it’s probably time that you picked up a few past papers.
2.Create a revision time table.
Now to some of you this may seem obvious and to others this may seem a tad pointless, but trust us, it’s a great tool. Now we’re not saying you need to plan every minute of your day down to bathroom breaks but we are saying that working out what and when you should be revising is a really good way to make sure you don’t miss any key points and most importantly don’t get bored doing the same subject everyday for a week.
Nothing is more boring than a huge mass of black ink against a white piece of paper. Throw some colour into the mix.
Studies show that adding colour to revision notes can actually help you remember them better. reds,yellows and oranges are especially good for grabbing your attention, whereas blues, purples and greens have a calming effect. This is is especially useful if you’re revising a subject that you’re worried about. So get doodling!
The one thing you don’t want to do this exam season is get down about how much revision you haven’t done, stay positive. Focus on what you have achieved and reward yourself for that. All you can do is your best, work at your own pace and reward yourself at each victory no matter how small.
5.Practice, practice, practice
You’ve heard the phrase practice makes perfect right? Well there’s a reason it’s so well known, it’s true! Don’t let all your revision go to waste make sure you can apply the things you’ve learnt to a question. Past papers are your best friend when revising.
