Best Way of Revising?

Showing 51 to 65 of 65

I really like the idea of saying something over and over while doinging something silly, I tried it out before doing some past papers and it really helps! :)

What do you find is the best way to learn? are you a visual learner? or do you learn best from doing practicals? or reading through notes and writing them out? xxxx

Make questions cards and test them on a friend, it helps and adds fun too! I did it yesterday with my friend, I remember almost everything!

if ur an auditory learner it really helps when you record yourself singing or rapping a certain topic cuz i did that and listened to myself over and over and now i know the periodic table :)

I learn everything that I didn't pay attention to by writing it out by hand, then typing it, or re-writing it from a textbook/memory.

I also try looooooooooooads of past papers. I did over 12 for my chemistry retake, and got a B, whereas before I got 2 Ds. :)

Repeatedly reading it over isn't the best way to revise, because it stays in your memory for the short-term, but come long term and it's long gone. You shouldn't revise just before because it isn't as effective as spreading out the revision.

Plus, a good stress teqnique is to clench all your muscles and release them one by one. Sorry if I've gone on a bit.

I find that listening to music helps. especially is there arnt any words coz then while you are in the exam you can think, " what song was i listening to then" when i do that i usually remember what i was reading.

Also try reading outloud and record yourself, then when you go to sleep listen to it. and don't revise on the day of the exam. it makes you nervous.

follow this link: http://www.rsc-ne-scotland.ac.uk/eduapps/download.php and dowload the 'mystudybar' app. You can create quick and easy floating sticky notes and mind maps and other revision tools. It really helps. Whatever info i need for an exam i now turn it into a virtual sticky note. Hopes this helps, it works for me. GOOD LUCK IN YOUR EXAMS :).

i think that past papers are realy important because you undersatnd what the examiners are looking for and i think that putting posters or mind maps on a wall closest to your bed is helpful because im quite a lazy person in the morning i hate to get up even if im fully awake so i read through the posters in the morning and it stays in my head its really helpful for science equations and so on.

Another thing i suggest is to buy a revison guide for each subject ask your tecahers what they would reccommend as they will cover everything on the syllabus and the layout is clearer than your own notes sometimes
