Preparing For Exam Season



Exam season is right around the corner which means it is time to grab your highlighters, notepads and textbooks and get revising. When it comes to revision, it is important to be organised. Look at when each exam is due to take place then create a revision timetable that priorities the subjects you will be tested on first. You can create a revision timetable online at: getrevising.co.uk/planner

By placing less enjoyable topics next to ones you find more interesting, you will find it easier to keep going. For example, an hour of maths revision might be more bearable if you have geography to look forward to after your break. 


Also think about where you are going to be revising, you will need plenty of light and space to spread out all of your resources. 

DO NOT OVER DO IT!
It is better to revise effectively for a few hours each day than to be buried in your books 24/7

DO Reward Yourself!
Allow yourself a treat after working hard or achieving a goal. Whether it is a relaxing night in with your favourite film or an afternoon out with your friends, give yourself time to relax.

DO NOT Leave Everything Until The Last Minute!
Not only is it unlikely to help you remember anything meaningful, it is almost guaranteed to stress you out right before your big day.
