Before starting your revision for your exams make up a timetable which includes all the topics you need to know and how much revision you need to learn them. Write down in hours per week how much the subjects get. Now produce the timetable from that day till your last exam and place your revision slots on the time you have free. If you don’t have much time free, make time. Use realistic times that you can stick at. There’s no point putting 4 hours of revision because you know that you will not do it.
When planning your revision try to cover each subject at least twice, this will let you refresh your knowledge or allow you to come back to topics that you are unsure of.
When planning your revision do not plan to cover the entire subject in one session, instead plan to cover a topic or aspects. For example to not plan to revise Science, instead break ti down into topics such as Human Systems, Waves or Chemical reactions.
If you want to get an idea of what the exam will be like, ask your teacher for some past papers to complete. This will give you a good idea of the questions, their structure and the amount of questions that you are likely to get. By completing past papers you also help you to get rid of your exam nerves.
Everyone is different so everyone has a different time for revising. Many people will say they revise best in the morning before dinner but some say they revise best at night. Test yourself and find out when your best time for revising is because this is very important and may be the difference between a pass and a fail.
Thank you to all those people who supported Children in Need here at OHA, our first-ever gunge a teacher was extremely popular and the winner Mr Salt got lots of votes to see him gunged! Mrs Heath ran an amazing three consecutive marathons in 17.5 hours around Stoke on Trent! https://t.co/TQlay4VXNU
