Top 10 revision tips for your final (or first-year) exams 💪🏻💥🤞🏻
1. Draw up a revision timetable.
Research shows that shorter 20-30 minute spells work best, because your concentration is much higher. Take short, frequent breaks and mix the order order of the subjects.
2. Exercise. Physical activity is very important, in particular during intense study time. Even going for a small 30-minute jog after a day of revision will make a huge difference to your wellbeing.
3. Find a quiet space.
You need a place where you can be uninterrupted for a few hours. Your room, local or your school/university library will do.
4. Get down to it in the morning.
You have to make a start at some point and doing it sooner rather than later is a very good idea. Try to stick to our draft revision schedule and start revising in the morning - research shows that you are more likely to do all the planned work if you start early.
5. Spice up your revision.
Use a bit of colour! Drawing colourful learning maps will help you to memorise facts. What is even more interesting is the fact that colourful notes are easier to memorise than plain black and white ones. Give it a go!
6. Do plenty of past papers.
Ask your tutor for some past papers or google them yourself.
7. Make summary notes.
Making notes is by far the best way to memorise lots of information.
8. Reward yourself.
It is not all about the work; you need good breaks too. People who manage to find the right balance between study and leisure are the ones who get the top marks. .
9. Use your family and friends.
Ask people around you to test you and give you feedback. This is not only a good way to revise but also a good way to have a break from the hard work.
10. Think positive!
At the end of the day, it's not all about studying. There are plenty of people who did well in life without 100% in every single exam, or who were actually pretty useless at school and university. Your life isn't over if you don't ace the exams, so take the pressure off yourself…
