Hi everyone,
So now it has come to the stressful easter holidays, the last official holidays before exam season starts, how is everyone revising, what techniques are you using to make it stick in and most importantly how much are you doing? I'm doing Spanish, English language, psychology and maths AS levels all for AQA but don't have a clue how to start revising!

1) Go through every single past paper, answer every single question and write notes about the questions you didn't get. Read examiner's reports- the places they say where candidates slipped up is a giveaway the exam board will throw those back in to compare year group statistics (teacher used to work for Edexcel)

2) For languages (I'm doing German), you'll find plenty of online essay phraseology charts to boost your phrases. Learn grammar rules that are higher level (maybe don't exactlylearn the rule bc thats hard af, but know some examples for every topic and fit them in somehow). Use Quizlet to binge vocabulary (free to make an account too) and keep practicing reading/listening/writing papers- it's a skill. You get good at a skill from practise

3) Do exercise to maintain stress, eat/sleep well, all will be good

I also do english language, psychology and maths. The best revision for maths is completing past exam papers. I would suggest for psychology that you do a past exam paper but without any notes, complete an hour of revision each day on topics such as memory, attachment, research methods ect. and then re do the paper and mark it so you can see your revision is making a difference. English Langauge is hard to revise for therefore I would suggest you create mind maps on accent and dialect and gender and occupation with example and theories so you understand what you could be asked to include. Hope this helps

I've done mind maps for the paper 1 on things from each language level that I can analyse, and started doing bits from paper 2 as we haven't covered much on them, but I can't seem to get timing right!! If I do it in timed i'm not writing in enough detail so I'm not getting a decent mark, so that's something I defo need to work on. Also for psychology are you using the old past papers too, as it's a new specification and they've not given us a lot to work with?!?
