    Revision Tips for Students Created by Parrs Wood Sixth Form students

    • Create a revision timetable
    • Make sure your revision is strategic, don’t cram loads of work into small periods of time
    • Take regular breaks between revision, you will be more productive in the long run
    • Make sure your revision timetable includes your hobbies/past times, this will help you to stay motivated and positive
    • Test yourself in timed conditions using past papers
    • Make sure you get a good night’s sleep, especially before exams. Don’t revise through the night, you need your sleep
    • Make flashcards for each topic; put the question on one side and the answer on the other
    • Set yourself a goal every day and reward yourself at the end of it, so you have something to look forward to when you finish revising
    • Change the subjects you are revising for often, this will help to keep you focussed
    • Work with another student who knows the topic well and test each other. This way, both of you will benefit and you can point out each others strengths and weaknesses
    • Focus on subjects and topics that you don’t know as well
    • Creating mind maps can help with subjects like Science, Geography and History. Mind maps can help you to organise information into ‘easy to remember’ chunks
