    Hi,

    I'm in year 11 so I've got a few techniques that work well for me ... still learning others though ... anyway, here are some ...

    1- whiteboards are brilliant , just keep re-writing (like look, cover, write check) on facts until you get it

    2- past papers - if u dont have time to do one, look through some you already have done - see how to phrase answers correctly and know how to answer questions step by step ... note down the key ideas for each topic in a list

    Languages- i take french and i have this app called duolingo - it has definitely helped overtime (teacher doesn't really teach us anything to be honest so I'm really glad i have it)

    R.E- my exam board is edexcel so we only have to know unit 1 and 8 ... try to memorise the main key quotes that can be used for most ideas (like an a4 sheet for each religion) ... note down the main views they have on one a4 ... usually it's pretty simple, but there are some unusual ideas which you can get from the revision guide or online ... here are two examples attached ... maybe when you do it , you could space it out a bit more Attachment 615966

    Triple science - my teachers give out little booklets of exam questions- they work well for me best - simple diagrams/posters - really nail the key points - the apps are quite good from aqa... keep doing them until you get everything correct

    English- hard one for me - usually for poetry- i write down the main affects each technique has

    Books - write down main quotes you can use for things

    ..As well as context/ideas/characteristics of the people


    Really my point is , know the basics and a little beyond because usually once you get the start, your mind remembers the rest and it just keeps rolling ... once you have the basics, go back and then go into really good in depth answers... (obviously revise into depth if you really need to

    and ask questions to teachers! I used to feel like an idiot so i didnt, but they're there to help you ... otherwise you wont know it and all you will do is regret and fail (bit dramatic but if u think like that at least you get it done) ... go to the teacher before/after school or at break/lunch if you are really embarrassed...

    If you think 'oh, i'll finish that at home' ... you wont most probably... try and get as much done as possible in that time and if not, make a pile at home of the things you need to do to remind you


    Didn't take history or fashion ... sorry ...hope this kind of helped ... i like my lists/diagrams ☺️ I can visualise it all better
