5 Tips for effective exam revision
1) Self discipline. Make a revision plan and stick to it. 2) Mix it up. Use websites, mindmapping, past-papers, readcover-check, role-play etc to keep your interest and focus. 3) Little and often. Write a plan with plenty of short revision periods (30 to 40 minutes) interspersed with breaks and rewards – this is much more effective than a few long stretches. 4) Positive thinking. Keep focused, whilst revising and during the exam, on the times you have been successful. 5) Eat Brain Food. Eat breakfast every day; avoid energy drinks and fatty snacks.
