Did you know that only 72% of students actually revise when it comes to their GCSE exams? That leaves 28% unprepared students taking an exam which could possibly predict their future. Could this be to a lack of support? Or is it the fact that students don’t have a clue what to do when it comes to revision? This article is about tips and ways to revise when it comes to these dreaded exams.
Tip 1: Make a plan.
Create a timetable and set a day for each subject but be sure to give yourself a hard earned break in-between, such as taking a 5 minute walk.
Tip 2: Understand, don’t memorise.
You’re more likely to be successful by understanding a subject than just trying to learn something new and not understanding it at all.
Tip 3: Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
Ask a teacher or a close friend to test you on questions about the subject.
Tip 4: Stay focused and avoid revision the night before.
Revising the night before can stress you out, relax and get a good nights sleep. focus on the parts you know on the exam day, not the ones you don’t.
Tip 5: Get rid of all distractions.
Put down your phone and step away from your Xbox because these will not help you when it comes to your exams. Get comfy and revise whichever subject you feel you want to revise.
