How do I revise?

Top tips

  • Make sure you know which topics you need to revise for each subject. Use your exam board specifications as a revision list
  • Make your revision active. Don’t just read notes. You could make flash cards, mind maps or use post it notes
  • Watching videos online can really help to bring your notes alive!
  • Test yourself by completing past papers or asking a friend to test you! This will identify areas of strength and weakness
  • Build in rewards for your revision eg: your favourite snack or using social media
