Does anyone have a revision timetable template that I could use?Watch
Bullet points or boxes or whatever works
Put 4 revision subjects in and put in one fun activity and one relax activity. Make what you revise very specific. Eg 1914 the soldier context poetry anthology on Seneca. To decide what to revise make a list of all your subjects. Your teachers should be willing so ask for each individual subject inside the subject. Make each subject a card for my method but you don't have to. You want to revise each one once, and then review it a few days later, a few weeks later, and a few months later. Only do 15 minute sessions up until January and don't start revising stuff that won't be on mocks yet. In January make it 7 boxes. One for a fun relaxing thing and the others for subjects. Do 15 mins of each thing you want to revise then do it all again. When you are stressed don't feel afraid to say no I can't do this today but put it in your schedule somewhere else.
When you revise a specific subject put that card to the front of the revised pile. Then when you feel bored just look at the back of your pike and that should be what you do next.
I'm no expert but this really works for me, because o have a short attention span so 15 minute sessions are just right.
When you revise and answer questions or whatever do them properly. Don't cheat, you only hurt yourself.
Please when revising don't just read over notes or highlight stuff. Do practicals answer questions, use colour and bold letters. My absolute favourite method? Write quotes and formula as well as key facts on post it notes or flashcards and stick them all over the house. My cereal draw has book quotes in so now I associate Romeo with Weetabix and Ebenezer Scrooge with cornflakes. Make a conscious effort to read them out loud when you see them. It may take longer but will help with memory.
Practice papers are amazing and if you don't use Seneca get it now.
If you don't want the science I'm sorry for the word jumble but don't bother reading on. It is interesting though.
So splitting into 15 min sections keeps the brain awake and active, stoppes boredom, mostly. Revise difficult stuff begin of week is when your brain is most awake and you have energy. Putting your relax onto schedule makes you more likely to revise properly and not just play on your phone or take a nap. Putting the schedule somewhere makes you pay attention to it and moving it makes you still see it because when things look normal you become blind to them. Like that stain on your curtain. You know it's there when you look carefully but not when you look out your window. Reviewing revision makes it stay fresh in your mind. Only 4 subjects for now makes it easier to process it all. Putting things where you see them helps with memory, but because of blindness when you get used to stuff remember to shuffle them and pay extra attention to reading them. Reading aloud is better for memory or something I'm not a scientist.
Ramblings over. I hope it helped you a bit.
I don't know if anybody still checks this thread but I have the revision template I used last year (and managed to achieve 11 9s with)!! DM me on my studygram insta @opusrevision_gcse and I can send a copy across
