- Don’t spend ages making your notes look pretty: This would just waste your time. For diagrams, include all the details you need to learn, but don’t try to produce a work of art
- Take short breaks every hour, not every 10 minutes
- Don’t just read your notes, you have to WRITE STUFF DOWN
- Do plenty of past papers: Ask your teacher for some past papers or google them yourself. Most exam boards nowadays put a lot of emphasis on exam technique and simply familiarising yourself with it before the exam can often save you time and help to earn marks at the exam
- Find the right environment to revise: NOT in front of the TV.
- Making summary notes is by far the best way to memorise lots of information
- Use your family and friends around you to test you and give you feedback
- Draw up a revision timetable. Do it today. They are frightfully useful
- Remember to Eat Well
- Think positive – it’s seriously not the end of the world if you fail..
