2 months left and im still behind please HELP watch

    • Thread Starter

    Basically I've got my first exam in under 2 months and I'm still struggling with revision and I'm not the best at school but really want minimum 6 and 7's or maybe 8's.
    I do: OCR Computing, AQA: Maths, English, French, Combined Science, History and Geography, EDEXCEL: Business Studies and Economics

    Please could you suggest revision techniques for someone who struggles with revision and school it self and how much to revise aswell.

    Many Thanks,

    I would suggest that you do a couple of past papers first , in order to get an idea of what information you have retained . Then for things like history , physics and chemistry you can make flash cards for key dates (history ) and equations (science ) you can stick these up somewhere you visit regularly so that you’ll always see them . For French you could watch tv and stuff in French so that you can hear the correct pronunciation, it would also be an idea to look at key words and phrases related to the topics you are learning . You can set yourself weekly vocab that you need to remember and then test yourself . Geography has a lot of content so you could watch YouTube videos to help condense all the content or you can make mind maps for each topic so that you only pick the information you need from your notes .I think the best way to learn maths is through practice so doing a lot of practice will help , you can also gain an understanding of the way in which they word their questions .

    You could revise 20-40 minutes of each subject each week .
