  • Plan what you need to revise and decide on when

  • Break each subject down into sections and decide which need most work

  • Create a timetable that makes sure you cover the subject and all its sub-sections by the time that exam day arrives

  • Make time slots, and try to get one revision section done in each time slot

  • Tell everyone in the house when you are going to be revising. Do not disturb!

  • Create your workspace: a quiet room and a clear desk

  • Try to get hold of as many past exam papers as you can and practise practise practise!



  • Try to revise in front of the television

  • Keep delaying – 'I'll just watch this/have something to eat or drink and then start revising'

  • Spend a whole day revising one subject. Shorter periods of time spent on one subject are more effective

  • Let good weather stop you revising

  • Be complacent. If you need a tutor, get one!
