Revision Tips,Tricks & Organisation♡Saturday, April 21, 2012
So its that time of year again for most, Exams! Time to prepare and revise in order to get the grades you want and deserve but if your like me, revision is not easy at all! I sit down, open my books and as soon as i get started, it seems everything else seems more interesting! I end up distracted and before i know it...its the end of the day and i haven't done anything..oops! But I have finally found a few techniques, tricks and tips that may help you as much as they did to me. Also, I'm going to throw in what you need to stay organised and make sure your information is easily accessable.
Other places worth revising in: kitchen or dining room table, the bedroom or living room floor, outside in the garden (only if its sunny), an internet cafe or regular coffee shop, library or office.
2) Revision cards. Yes i know i know, you've heard it all before but they really do work! I usually make some long before the exam so i don't have to waste time rushing making them a few days before it. Honestly, these have helped me so much in remembering important information and testing myself. Grab some brightly coloured card and highlighters for the important information and test yourself or get someone else to test you. Personally, i make two piles for each module:
1) One with short snippets of information on so i can quickly go over before an exam
2) One with questions on the front and answers on the back, so i can test myself and others
Both work well and are easy to take around with you as its not carrying around a big folder full of information.Two words: Life savers.
