Revision techniques from BBC Bitesize

What are revision techniques?

Revision techniques sound complicated but they are just ideas, tips and strategies that help you revise.

There is no such thing as the ‘right technique’ or even the ‘best technique’. What works brilliantly for your friend might not suit you. It’s a case of trying a few out and seeing which ones work best for you.

Below you'll find three videos from BBC Bitesize that explain some popular revision techniques: mind mapping, using key words, and using sound.
