I am attempting to raise my gcse grades from 5s and 6s which are my target grades to a 7. However, I cannot find a revision method which works extremely well. I have tried flashcards, post-it notes, Podcasts, youtube videos, quizzing and using practise questions from revision guide however none seem to work as well as i would like. As a kinaesthetic learner, its very hard to find a method which works well on academic gcse subjects. I used to use practise papers when i took my media exam in january but all my other subjects are on the new gcse and there are no practise papers!!
Does anyone have any useful methods that i could try to boost my level up? x

You need to be moving when your revising, so walk around the room dance, do any movement to help you remember.
Other ways to remember are:
Dance moves - each movement would mean something different so you can recall a series of events.
Lyrics - yep write a song and sing it
Acronyms - words that help you remember subject matter (ie FACE - focus, actions, create, end) etc.
Loci /Roman Room method
Smells - yep certain smells can influence the brain
Tastes - as above
If you look up when you forget it helps the memory pathway recall.
Do 5-7 small bits rather then loads at a time
Do 20 minutes on and 5 minute breaks
Link what you are learning with what you already know.
If you are really interested in learning how the brain memorises, recalls etc, go to the library and look at a book called:
"Introduction to Psychology ' by Atkinson and Hilgard
Mine ( an old edition) has a humongous chapter on the memory and recall.
PS if that doesn't help then look up Howard Gardener's Multiple Intelligences - it's based on 7 learning styles instead of 3, and is much more in depth including music intelligence etc.Last edited by Purdy7; 29-10-2017 at 16:53.
