How to revise for multiple exams?

  • -1 votes

I have 6 exams coming up and June and obviously it's going to be a lot more difficult than for just one! :P Does anyone more experienced have ideas on how to revise effectively for multiple exams? (it would be helpful if you could include an ideal time to start and how much to do per day)

How about having 23 exams which start in May?? D: And the teacher hasn't even finished teaching us the topics yet!

In the Easter holidays when you have two weeks off, make a timetable and aim to study about 4 or 5 topics a day with breaks in between. You could base the timetable to your school one I guess and use those time slots!

I'm still wondering myself how I'm going to be able to revise for all my exams in time! If only I had all the time in the world...

I have 5 exams in May and June, I have already completed 2 science exams

I found the best way to revise is to use an A4 side of paper per subject and draw picutures that made me remember key aspects of that subject, I didn't really use writing as it gets confusing, and its much easier to think of the pictures in the exam

woah, i ahve 12 exams and i think thats alot, let alone 23!! what i do is basically split my time up during the day for each one, for example ill probably do abit more science in the weekend than something like business or english, and work for max one hour chunks

Make a revision timetable on this website as it works it all out for you and you can add your hobbies and choose when you would like to revise (it also saves a lot of time!) I wouldn't revise for any longer than one hour at a time. I would also adapt your revision timetable to make it more specific. For example, for Biology you could decide what specific topics you are going to revise e.g. Evolution. This way, you know that you have covered the topic and can see what's left to revise. Also, revise the things that you find difficult or don't understand first - don't leave it until the last minute otherwise you may not know it for the exam!!

Good luck :)

@aliimz, how long breaks, how much per day?

@furaba fan - by topics do you mean  subjects or stuff like doing compound measures, algebraic fractions, multiplication, and division, and do you mean overall or for each subject?

i have 9 exams starting in may but what i do is to cover all the knowledge first then doing loads of past papers because the past papers help you get the hang on how they wording the questions then look at the sample answers. :) hope that helps

Well, what I mean by 'topics' are topics within a subject... say you're doing maths, you revise a topic e.g. algebra from maths, then revise a different topic from a different subject and so on for variation so your brain doesn't ge too bored from revision! Of course you might want to conentrate more on the subject which you're weakest in!
