BEST WAYS TO REVISE:
The first thing I’ve personally found that helps with revision is specifications! No matter what subject you take it will have a specification (an outline of the entire course, what you need to know for the exam), it can be found on the subjects exam board website (AQA, Edexcel, OCR, e.c.t.). Simply find your qualification and subject and tad-ah!
Another great way to revise is past papers! Again, these can be found on exam board websites. I know what you’re thinking ‘ew exam prep’ but trust me, getting used to the structure of the paper is a massive plus. You’ll gradually notice the general trend of questions asked which will help you prepare and if you decide to actually do the paper in timed conditions it will help you get used to answering them!
Start revising ASAP, even if its just getting to know your way around the course specification if will be a massive help and it will mean less cramming!
Make notes in colour, it has been proven that those who make notes in colour (or highlighting) are more likely to remember them!
Find out if you’re a visual, auditory or kinaesthetic learner, by doing this you’ll be able to figure out the best revision techniques for you! (Take a free test here, it’s just multi-answer questions dont worry)
Record yourself speaking your revision notes, if you do this and listen back to them over and over you’ll be helping yourself remember without realising (this is especially good for auditory learners)
Read back the notes you just made and then try again without looking! If you get something wrong, do it again!
Create mindmaps, this is a really good technique no matter what type of learner you are as its easy to picture them in your mind when trying to recall (especially if you do it in colours!)
Flashcards!
Create presentations, this is a really great way to revise sub genres of a course! (this website is especially good for making presentations)(it is free as well)
Revise in 20-30minute bursts then have a 5-10minute break!! It has been proven (again) that after a prolonged period of time your brains ability to concentrate decreases, so try to have regular breaks, even if its just a pee-and-tea break!
