    I need some advice on how to revise as I have mock exams coming up in less than 3 weeks and I have not revised😭😭
    Posted on the TSR App. Download from Apple or Google Play

    Make up a notebook (you can carry) with the cheat sheets and mind maps. You take it everywhere with you and revise in every spare second you get. Use anything that works for you so include acronyms, journey methods, loci, etc.

    You'll need a page on each paper, the questions for each with things like timings, what you need to answer, how to get extra points.

    Mind map each paper with bits for each question
    Mind map the whole subject
    Do acronyms for terms you'll need to know, and know what they mean and how to use them.
    Make notes from videos and put in there (ie Mr Bruff for English Language)
    Do a chart showing the timings of the paper, and where the highest marks are, at least that way if you are short of time you wont waste time on low scoring questions.

    Do mock papers, so you know what to expect, some of them can be harder then the actual exam so don't get put off by them.

    If you are getting extra time (allowed for those with dyslexia, and physical impairment etc), know what you that time, or have a strategy to use the extra time.

    Know how you learn and use that - visual audio or kinesthetic or Howard Gardeners 7 Intelligences.

    PS Index cards work as well, as do wipe boards.
