Can you suggest any revision techniques that don’t involve writing?

If you have a Tablet or PC/Laptop, you could use them for taking notes and you'll be able to type with your uninjured hand. Alternatively, voice record and dictate your notes to your phone/tablet/computer and then transcribe them when your arm is better.

If I were you I would voice record revision notes and listen back to them. Luckily you have plenty of time before your exams, but it just means you have something to do in the meantime. Also, take a look at some past papers and consider how you would answer it and the points you could make, then read over the mark scheme to see how similar that was with the model answer. You're not writing anything, but still learning plenty.

Reading.

How will you be able to write your answers if your arm is in a sling? How important is this 'test'?

quizlet and anki have banks of premade flashcards
get your mum to test you by asking you things from the textbook
read about a concept and then verbally (actually say it out loud!) explain it as if you were explaining it to someone who knew nothing about the topic without looking at your notes

(all good techniques for testing understanding even if you could write! notes are not the most efficient way to study)

My teacher knows the situation and he said he would “figure something out” test is tomorrow and he didn’t get back to me...
The test is pretty important, it’s a mock

Use google docs and you can speak and the words will transcribe on the screen without having to type i do this sometimes when im lazy
or you can voice record yourself and play it back

Read your notes and then attempt to recite them from memory, that's what I always do!

Revise in ways which dont use your arm.

1. Read notes.
2. Do quizzes with a friend/ skype or otherwise.
3. Watch youtube vids or as people have said quizlet or similar.


Explain your issue to the school/ uni etc.
