What to do for last minute revision?

  • 0 votes

I just don't know what to do for last minute revision. In fact I NEVER know. Once I have learnt the content, made notes/flashcards,done summary questions and done past papers-I really don't know what to do!

I can't find any ways to test what I know and don't for exams because I want short tests but I can't find any online.

By the way, tried Bitesize. It doesn't work for me.  So... what to do for last minute revision apart from the boring stuff like making quick notes, doing past papers AGAIN and going on Boring Bitesize? 

Phew. :)

If you reach the stage where you have exhuasted almost all resources, generally that means you have a near 100% grasp of the material. A good route to take now is to teach others. Go on the forums here and TSR and find people who you can help. Make resources here. Teaching is a whole new way to revise.

Thanks-that's really good advice, sam! So, for last min revision teach others by making resources such as notes on GR?

Read your notes over and over again!And then get someone to test you with little questions instead of exam papers.

It is dependant on your learning style there is no point trying to go over absolutely everything last minute because your brain is unlikely to remember it all so try making revision cards on the topics/parts you do not know or feel you won't remember beforehane that way you are forced to try and remember what you do not know, This works for me and i use them for almost every test. However, it is important to try many methods each time to see you last minute revision preference

Sabrina: 'Try revision guides'

No, not revision guides. I've already got them, and that's what I partly meant by 'learn the content'. I use them to help me learn the content aswell as my class notes. Basically, they are included in the list of what I have already done when revising.
