Ways You Can Prepare

Given the diversity in individual learning styles, proposing a universally effective revision strategy proves challenging. Below are alternative suggestions on how to get ready for your exams commencing in May.

Create a Revision Schedule

Constructing a revision timetable proves highly beneficially for tracking topics covered and managing time effectively. Ensure the schedule is realistic and achievable, this will help you stick to it.

Organise Your Revision Materials

With several subjects to tackle, maintaining organisation is key. Divide your notes and materials by subject, organising them by paper to improve clarity regarding the content covered on each exam.

Practice Time Management

Sharpen your time management skills by having a go at answering questions within time constraints. This will help you learn how to give clear and concise answers, as well as practising your exam technique.

Varied Revision Techniques

When doing your revision try and and experiment with various techniques, including mind maps and practice papers. Since these techniques are testing different skills, this will enhance your knowledge retention. Tailoring your methods to your individual learning style, whether it be visual, auditory or kinaesthetic.

Maintaining Positivity

While GCSEs are important, they are not the be all and end all. Avoid pilling unnecessary pressure on yourself because it will only hinder your performance.
