10 Top Tips for revising.

  1. Make it public: make an A3 poster of your revision timetable so everyone will know what you should be doing and revising. Others can motivate you as ell and make provisions for your revision. You will also feel more committed if you know that others have seen your revision timetable.
  2. Post it somewhere public, like kitchen.
  3. Start early in the morning, maybe 9am. Your brain is relaxed and ready to absorb facts early in the morning. Start in the morning to get most of the revision out of your way so you will not feel so crushed under the weight of unread revision folders.
  4. Ask yourself questions while revising. Facts are piled up in your head just waiting to be refreshed. When you are asking yourself questions you breathe life to those facts. Make it a game, write questions and answers on the sheet of paper and then cover them up with your finger and ask yourself questions.
  5. Try to turn off all your digital devices: laptops, mobile phones etc. It is very easy to get lost in vast spaces of the web. Instead concentrate on your revision folders.
  6. Come up with mnemonics for difficult staff like King Prawn Curry or Fat Greasy Sausages (Kingdome, Phylum, Class, Order, Family Genus and Specie).
  7. Mitosis Phases: I propose men are trouble (Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase and Telophase)
  8. Need to remember all the visible colors in the color spectrum? They are R – red, O – orange, Y – yellow, G – green, B – blue I – indigo, V – violet. Try to remember: Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain.
  9. The Planets (without poor Pluto) are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Noodles.
  10. Don’t forget to have frequent breaks while revising. I found it motivating to just get up and have a walk to the kitchen to make myself a cup of tea.
  11. Don’t leave everything to the last minute! You will only get stressed and make yourself ill.
