Showing you some of the techniques used to study

Having an effective revision technique is vital to passing your exams at school. It may take a long time before you come up with a technique that works for you as there's lots! Here are just a few suggestions...

Stay organised

It is very important that you know what you are doing throughout your course. Making sure that you don't forget things throughout your studies will benefit you greatly in the future. You can start by purchasing a diary, writing down all of your deadlines, tasks and other school related information. Having a revision timetable is also a good idea as it will ensure that you are on task the whole time you are revising. This way you can also be strict with yourself when it comes to revision.

Flash Cards

These cards are great when it comes to memorising or testing yourself on what you already know. It is as simple as writing a question on one side of a card and the answer on the other. That way, when you really don't know the answer to the question you can turn the card over revealing itself. Upon repeating the process you will notice that you start to remember more and more. 

Past papers

This is one of the most used revision techniques. By answering exam style questions you are enabling yourself get used to the style and structure of the questions. You are also improving your knowlwedge at the same time! By being forced to search for information without having a book or your notes by your side is more challenging than you think. That way, when you finally figure out what it was that you needed for a specifc question it would not take you as long the next time you answer a similar question.

Revision is key to success!
