• Revision notes

    Published on 22-03-2016 12:42
    Making revision notes helps you consolidate everything you've learnt over your course, allowing you to spot strong and weak areas in your knowledge.


    Making revision notes is the first stage of revision for many students. The process makes you collect all your resources together and creating the notes actually helps you learn.

    You can create revision notes on TSR. Making them online means you won’t lose them and it’s easy to add all the colours and highlighting that make them memorable.

    If you’re looking for a set of revision notes to use then you’ll find what you need in the online TSR Resource bank. There are thousands of detailed sets of notes, covering every subject, which you can find here. Many are teacher recommended so you can feel confident about using them.

    How TSR members use revision notes

    ‘I think it's better if everyone makes their own notes as you actually learn while making the notes.’
    ‘When making revision notes I always write a few bullet points over the main point. I then write more on the things I know I forget. If possible I draw small diagrams. Three of my textbook pages end up as a single sheet of revision notes.’
    ‘Everything has to look colourful and nice or I'd refuse to even look at it. I make sure my notes are in as much detail as possible - without overdoing it. The little details get you marks.’
    Tips for making great revision notes

    • Most students find notes easier to learn if they’re colourful with diagrams and key points in bold or highlighted.

    • Make revision notes detailed and then reduce the key information onto flashcards to learn.

    • Use headings and sub-headings so you can see how the information fits together.
