How to reviseWatch
Revise effectively; make revision guides, flashcards, mind maps etc. summarize the key facts and info you need to know
Also, your mental health hugely affects your revision! Remember to eat well, exercise often, drink good amounts of water and get good sleep!
Really hope this helps!
This has helped many students.
-Read it (textbooks, online, etc)
-make mindmaps, graphs, revision cards
-go on those websites like hegarty maths, science surgery, etc
-do past test papers and mark them yourself to see where you went wrong
-set annoying notifications for yourself if you're procrastinating, and not only one, set multiple in a row to really get your attention
That's all I can really think of good luck lol
Always make sure your class notes are up to date and that you understand the class content every week. Tbh for Gcse's all you really need are the cgp revision guides in terms of content revision.
To actually revise, read through your notes on a topic and try to understand them first. Then a few mins later or even immediately, try to test your understanding using flashcards or try and create a mindmap of the topic from memory. Quizlet is a good resource to use for flashcards - loads of readymade flashcards that others have spent hours making! When you feel confident, start answering practise questions. Maybe leave the full past papers for year 11, no harm in starting in the summer though.
With practise questions, what you wanna do is first answer questions from memory in one colour, then look through the textbook/revision guide and add to your answer in a different colour pen, and then mark it in another pen. Over time you'll reduce the amount of content from the textbook and mark scheme and only have your own knowledge written on there.
Use year 10 summer to really make sure you brush up on all the content so far and have notes ready.
remember you want to work smart not hard- you have approximately 10 subjects to revise for so realistically you won't be able to put 100% effort into each subject unless you're a genius.
