    Study tips


    Method of revision:
    - mindmaps
    - teaching others
    - recording yourself and listening back to it
    - repeating things aloud
    - revising with classmates
    - drawing diagrams
    - making a song of it
    - a silly story to help it stick
    - making notes from textbook then summarising those further into your own words (try having a limit on number of words to stick to key points)
    - writing things over and over again
    - using colour

    Make a list of all the topics, prioritise them by ordering in terms of which you need more help with/need more time to go over, then tackle each one

    If there is something you're particularly stuck on, ask the teacher for help!

    Get practise from exam and practise questions! It will help to reinforce things and find your weaker areas.

    Record yourself talking and listen back to it when you're free.

    It really depends on what subject you need help with. What subjects do you do?

    History, geography and science.
    History:
    • Summarise the content of each module on one sheet of paper and memorise this
    • Condense events into 3 bullet points [Linking with the point above]
    • Make a list of significant events and their dates and highlight each one you manage to remember
    • Do every single past paper question
    • Plan your essays with bullet points within a minute
    • Time yourself when doing essays
    • Practice writing really fast
    Geography:
    • Sorry, not too sure about this one, maybe try the points I've said for history?
    Science:
    • Record yourself talking and listen to yourself when you commute
    • Makes notes on every topic
    Hope this helps!
