Revision: memory hacks and tips

Film with GCSE and Nationals revision tips and advice, from exam survivors The Mind Set

How to use memory hacks

  • Make flash cards that you can carry around
  • Put the flash cards that you can recall in one pile. Leave the ones you can’t remember in another pile to keep working on
  • Don't be afraid to re-write your notes. Repetition is really important
  • Use patterns of letters to remember key word in topics (mnemonics) e.g. the colours of the rainbow = 'Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain'
  • Mind maps are great visual aids to help you make links within subjects
