    After half term I have a few exams left (2 in history and 3 in science)
    During year 7-9 I could never revise properly and would spend hours in my room thinking I have done 4 hours when I probably did 40 minutes. This year I would like to know how to properly revise because I don't really want to retake my exams. Does anyone have any tips on how to revise or your methods to revise for exams?

    stay away from the internet/ your phone/ tv/ tsr/ anything distracting

    go to the library and revise there, or somewhere you can't be distracted and actually do your work. do past papers/review notes but don't write up notes. its a total waste of time.

    don't focus on how long you're revising but how useful the revision is... half an hour of focused revision is can be better than 5 hours of writing up notes, reading long passages in textbooks, etc.

    best of luck with all your exams!!:jive::heart:
