Hi, I'm having troubles revising for biology, physics, chemistry and maths. I have a maths exam in November, and my 3 science subject resits in January. Any tips??

review your notes after each lesson to make sure you have understood everything

find out from your teacher what you will be doing next lesson and look over it before hand - this way you will have more understanding of what you're being taught so the lesson will be more beneficial and you will be able to ask about the sections you are unsure on.

Do as many past papers as you can - they don't even have t be from your exam board, just from the topic you are doing. and when done MARK THEM! you can't learn where you have gone wrong or improve your technique if you don't.

do all of the practice questions/ revision / exam questions in your text book/revision guides without looking the answers up - this will test your knowledge and you can look up more detail after completing questions

By doing past papers you can also identify your weaker areas and do extra revision for those:)

You should also revise in exam conditions, you'll find it easier to remember in the exam. also drink water as a hydrated brain learns better:)

Repeat, repeat, repeat. everything. past papers, reviewing, making notes. ust to drill it into your head.

it's never too late or early to start. first exams in January, that isn't long off. especially if you want to relax a bit over Christmas and you have a minimum of 2 other subjects to revise for. i'd revise as much as you can now, not in a month, and then continue up to your exams

it's not quantity, it's quality. no point revising at 3am when you're so tired you will forget it all. but try to get in some each day.

Revise in your free periods or after school! don't just sit around doing nothing. if you don't want to revise or your friends are laughing just do your homework and tell them you're busy so can't do it later or that it's overdue!

Simple trick that works and secures you top grades

1. Always start working with a positive attitude every single day. forget about past 

2. Read books and notes , read again, again and again until you are completely comfortable with the stuff inside the books

TIP : CGP books work miracles , invest some money on those and follow the other tips 

tust me you won't regret 

3. Instead of leaving your work for the last minute revision start working from today 

4. take short breaks

5. on weekends decide which subjects to study . as you have your exam near so i would suggest you to decide which subjects to study like 2 subjects each day 

6. and learn , revise those 2 like you have your exam next day 

7. drink water eat healthy food and exercise 

8. Revise again

9 practice the past papers which you can find on the exam board

10. revise

11. past papers

practice past questions by doing lots of past papers, and make lots of notes on all key terms. for maths I find the best way to revise is just to do as many practice questions as possible.

For Maths: Do lots of past papers. Look through notes to learn how to do certain things. Run through a few excersises in the text book.

Sciences is more just memorising everything. Personally I just read a topic, shut the book, and write my own summary of it.
