whenChoose times when you feel alert and able concentrate. Just after meals should be avoided as you often feel more tired at these times.

       Set aside your own space in a quiet room with a table and a clock. This room should be comfortably warm and brightly lit.

Organise a revision timetable that is made up of sessions of 2 hours, divided into 4 or 5 shorter sessions with breaks.

VarietyRevisit topics regularly – if you revise a section of work once, you will remember very little of it in the exam. If you revisit the same work to review it after a day and then after a week, you will remember much more. Reviewing it shouldn’t take as long as the first time you revise it.



Be active when you revise, make notes, cue cards, draw diagrams – you will remember much more.

Revise a section using your notes, a revision guide, textbooks, videos (BBC Bitesize are a good resource), or the Internet and then have a go at answering an exam question.


If you have to learn and remember facts, try to imagine them as colourful images in your mind or make up phrases that you can associate them with.

The Internet now has huge amounts of resources to help you.
