Hi there,

My advice to you would be making yourself a timetable in advance and going through whatever you have done in class for at least 1 hour everyday (per subject). It may seem a lot but when it comes to exam time in June, you'll feel much more prepared and relaxed! Also research other things around the topics you are studying in class.

I usually make revision notes with lots of different colours and then test myself or ask my sister to test me in order to ensure that I know AND understand it inside out. This is my personal way of revising, you need to find what you're comfortable with and what works best for you. It may be re-writing your notes, or making a story related to it, or even speaking out aloud!

I wish you the best of luck!

PS; This time will never really come again, so prepare yourself in advance, you don't want any regrets, HARD WORK ALWAYS PAYS OFF!

start revising early and find a revision method that suits you, i just re write my notes out in bullet point form and then read over the notes i just made and highlight the key words, this helps you as you are reading the information twice. each day try to rewrite the notes you make in class this will make your revision much easier as everything should be fresher in your mind. practice with past papers or past questions then either mark them your self or get your teacher to mark them, then see what you did well and what you need to improve on, past papers also reinforce what you learn, i usually try to do some past questions each weekend, even if it's just one or two it helps a lot. also, if you start talking to your parents or a brother and sister about a topic it will help you remember it and understand it, i even talk to my cat sometimes if no one else is bothering to listen to me! then there is also things like posters, mind maps, flashcards and postit notesalthough i don't find these help me they may help you so give it a try.

hope this helps :)

no problem, i'm sure you'll be fine if you revise well, oh and one more thing, if you finish going through you're notes early, like i did last year, gho over the hardest bits again, and when it gets closer to your exams do more past papers/questions

First of all use this website to find all revision material... and then sit down and revision and revision and revision and then for the whole night sleep like you have never slept before the next day after school write down what you remember without looking at the revision material and then see what you are missing out on and then revise the key areas. Also check your grammar too it could improve a D grade answer to a B
