Create a revision timetable – Set targets each day, tick off small successes and celebrate your accomplishments. Remember to include breaks and mealtimes. It is important to take a break and give your eyes and brain rest
Mix up your weak subjects with your favourites, so you don’t lose confidence by focusing just on the tricky ones.
Make your own revision notes – You will start learning as soon as you write something down. Make short and sharp notes and stick to the main points. Write the key facts on post-it notes to pop them on the fridge or in your bedroom.
