Revise it right!

Student revising using a laptopThere are as many ways to revise as there are people but some methods have been tested and found to be more effective than others.  It is believed the best ways to marshal your understanding so it is easy to recall and apply in your exams are:

  1. Plan ahead and spread out your revision for each subject and change which subjects you are revising regularly.  This will help you remember each of them better than if you focus on each in turn.
  2. Test yourself using flashcards: write a question and answer on either side of a card and then test yourself.  This has been proven both to focus the mind and improve factual recall in exams.
  3. Keep a regular routine and maintain a healthy lifestyle (tips for this below).
