Top 5 Tips For Smooth Revision
Exam season is stressful for many students across the country. With GCSE, A Level and undergraduate students preparing to undertake their exams, our friends over at the Student Development Co have provided you all with top tips to revise:
- Understand your learning style. Whether it’s visual, auditory or reading and writing, understanding your unique learning style will help you to study better and retain more information.
- Make a timetable for your revision schedule. Organising your revision timetable is ideal for those with multiple exams. Allocate an equal amount of time for each subject with regular breaks in between.
- Practice using previous exam papers. Doing as many past papers as you can is the best method to familiarise yourself with the exam format, question style, in addition to performing your absolute best within strict timed conditions. Moreover, questions repeat themselves often, particularly for GCSE and A Level papers, so be prepared to answer a question you have come across during your examination preparation.
- Take regular breaks. Studies have shown that taking regular breaks whilst revising is an effective method to retain information.
- Collaborate with others. This can be anything from swapping notes to having a debate on a certain topic. Collaborating with classmates is a great way to learn new information and to remember information you may have forgotten.
