heyyy, I’m a current year 12 student that has exams coming up! These exams are extremely important and my final grade will be based on these results!

Any advice you could give me to help improve my grade with light burning myself out, like I have been, would be much appreciated!

Thank you so much!

Revise using active recall rather than doing passive activities like writing notes this means you don’t have to spend so long revising and will be less likely to burn out. Quizlet and flash cards are normally quite good for this. I would suggest deciding what tasks you want to do and divide them by how many weeks you have - so instead of spending 60 mins on exam questions for a topic do 10 minutes for 6 weeks this way when revising you flick between topics like you have to in exams, it’s more manageable and you cover more topics in the last couple weeks before the assessment (it won’t be like 4 weeks since you last looked at something when you’re in your assessment).

What subjects are you doing?

Hiiii...I am yr 13.
-Make sure to go over the areas of the topics that you need to work on not the ones you dont.

-Dont over revise...you do not want to stress yourself out because the consequences are not great! make sure to get at least 8-9hrs sleep...trust me this will make a big difference.
-Watch YouTube videos on the topic instead...these helped me much better than reading documents and stuff like that.

-Make notes and posters and stick them around your room...this has been scientifically proven to help!

-Eat snacks between study time at home or at school if you are aloud...this helped me for some reason
-Stay Motivated and Dont give up!
Your going to do amazing!! I can just sense it.

thank you so much!! I am studying a level law and biology as well as doing an as level for maths and a level 3 national diploma btec for psychology! I just received my grades and am doing some what okay it just I’ve lacked motivation so much and feel although I am not revising properly if that makes sense. I have done thousands of flashcards and none of them have helped which has been getting me really down because I do genuinely try and want to do well :/

Honestly thank you so much you don’t realise how helpful this is!! I will definitely keep this in mind when approaching revising again! All the best and again thank you !!

Past papers
I’ve tried past papers but feel although they aren’t very effective for me for some reason :/ I always end up getting more frustrated if I get a question wrong because it makes me feel worse about myself

I find myself relying on the mark scheme like I know I shouldn’t but I always have to double check my answer after writing it and always miss out points

I typically went over notes and rewrote specific details which I planned on doing till I heard that’s the worst way of revising <3
