GCSE Revision Tips


Revision, the bane of most teenagers lives. I know personally everyday at the minuet consists of revising whether it be for 20 minuets or 10 hours. Going through year 11 and being almost at the start of exams this time is the time that matters the most, the countdown is on! Here is how I have coped through year 11 so far and how I am going to continue to cope for the next three months!

Exercise!!!!
This will really not appeal to some people but if you are a bit of a gym bunny and fitness freak anyway this is defiantly for you. Set aside some time for exercising as that is your relief from the stress of school and exams and revision. Sometimes when I'm working out whether it will be boxing or running or any other form of workout, I can feel quite guilty that I've not got my head in a book so my solution to that is I listen to the audio-book of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde instead of music. This won't work for everyone as some people don't workout anyway but I find it really useful.

Snacks Sleep and Hydration
You wouldn't go on a long road trip without snacks, so why sit in one space at home and suffer thinking about being hungry instead of your work? You need to eat drink and sleep! Without these you will not get anything done or memorized, you won't be working at your best ability without so don't deprive yourself of these things.

Colour
As I'm a visual learner this one is key for me. I was having a real struggle to remembering quotes for English and equations for science and math so my advice would be colour code things. So I have the Romeo and Juliet quotes written on paper in red and stuck up all over my house and then I have the an Inspector calls quotes written in blue as when I'm in an exam I find it so much easier to remember the lines by their colour.

Prioritise
By now coursework should be more less done if it isn't don't panic but quick get it done! Time is running low and that's no new fact but if you get all your coursework done as quick as you can then you don't have to worry about it anymore which is my biggest piece of advice as it takes a little bit of stress off which will actually make a big difference right now.

Get Organised
Don't go over the top with this and spend more time organizing than actually revising but be organised get yourself a folder or notebook and put all your revision together because losing parts and not being able to tell what you have and haven't already worked on will stress you out more. Organizing from the start will ensure you spend equal time on each subject and work on the things you are lacking.
