    Hi,

    After coming to terms with how close the UCAS deadline is approaching, I've become really anxious that my current performance is not suffice. I really want to start properly revising but I have no idea where to start. Can you perhaps give me some suggestions of websites/software that'll help me manage my revision?. Please help - I'm willing to put in the effort but don't know how!

    First off, don't panic, not knowing how to study/revise is really common we pretty much all feel that at some point during our studies. It depends at what stage you're at, as you're probably aware, studying and revision are two very separate things. Have you been actively studying during your course so far? What I mean by this is, are you merely going to classes or have you been taking notes, reading textbooks and putting things into your own words? To effectively revise you first have to have study material to work with.

    Revision is about revising work you already know and understand and making sure you remember it. This is different for everyone, its all about finding what works for you as an individual and different people will find different things work. So if you're not sure what your style is, I suggest trying a few different things to see what works best for you. Here is a quiz you can take to determine what kind of learner you are.

    This is usually a good place to start. If you're a visual learner, then try creating mindmaps, if you're an auditory learner, try making audio recordings of yourself talking about the subjects you are studying. A good all round revision technique can be to make flashcards, this can be digitally but personally, I prefer the real thing as you can take this with you and go over them when you have a few spare minutes for example on a bus journey or during your lunch break.

    I hope this hopes you get started, if you have any questions, then please ask and here are some potentially useful web pages.
