    2. Go to the textbook and make revision notes:deal:
    3. Read them. Again. And again. And again
    4. Check the syllabus to see what you should know
    5. Write out your notes by hand
    6. Memorise and recit the notes
    7. Don't listen to distruptive music or go on disruptive websites!
    8. Soothing background music.:banana:
    9. Drink water
    10. Create mind maps for knowledge based exams
    11. Lots of colour in your notes
    12. Read up on your literature, make sure you have plenty of notes
    13. Go into school to revise
    14. Get oranised, plan what you're going to do in advance
    15. Also plan the breaks - not too long!
    16. Split the day into different sessions, not just one subject/assignment
    17. Do relaxing things if you need to de-stress. Get some fresh air!
    18. Do not plan long revision sessions
    19. Revise for 2 or 3 hours at a time - Maybe try the pomodoro technique :bebored:
    20. Search online for helpful revision notes if you find reading your books problematic
    21. Only revise with friends if it works for you. Don't waste time! :beer:
    22. Not too loud or catchy music. Something relaxing
    23. Set revision targets and goals. Then tick them off once achieve
    24. Throw your phone in the bin (or maybe just turn it off)
    25. Clear your desk and arrange your notes. Make sure you have plenty of light.
    26. Make a personal revision timetable
    27. Use your walls! Stick up your notes up there for maximum visibility
    28. Make the most of revision textbooks and CD's
    29. Revise wherever works for you. The shower perhaps? :bath:
    30. Don't just read, read any copy down. Also make use of the textbook questions
