TOP REVISION TIPS

 

Post It Notes
Write key words on each note and stick them around your house. Use different coloured stickers for different subjects

Past Papers
Do every past paper for your exam board and subject that you can find! Go to your exam board website to download more!

Posters
Make revision posters and put them around your bedroom.

Attend Revision Session
Draw up a timetable of which revision session you will go to after school each day. It is often easier to revise with teachers and friends than home alone.

Acronyms and Mnemonics
Acronyms—use the first letter for each word to make a new word to  prompt your memory e.g. SOHCAHTOA

Mnemonics—make up a silly sentences to help you remember the order of something e.g. North East South West > Never Eat Shredded Wheat

Revision Websites
Make sure that you know which revision websites are best for each subject/topic. See the list on the other side and ask your teacher.

Mind Maps
Don’t just rewrite class notes. Put them in the form of a spider diagram. Add pictures as visual aids and use different colours.

Flascards/Postcards
Write information about a topic on a postcard. This will force you to condense your notes so you only include the most vital information. They are easy to keep in your pocket to use at any time.

You could also write 10 questions on one side and the answers on the other.
