Can you give us advice on how to revise effectively? This is a common question amongst parents and pupils themselves who are about to take their exams.
From research and common experience between myself and pupils, these are what I consider to be the most effective way to do it. Some of course are what we might consider plain common sense but which pupils under pressure, need reminders on:
When revising, make sure you take a break between 1 hour revision slots. Revising for 2 hours or more each time will prove to be unproductive as your brain becomes saturated. Take a breather. Go for a walk, stretch, have a drink, a little nibble or talk to your pet! While you're having these mini breaks, totally forget about the revision.
Make sure you ask for help on any topic you struggle with be it with your teacher, tutor, a friend, online, youtube, maths websites, etc.
Make sure you know how to use your calculator. Practice using this on topics such as trigonometry, indices, series, ...
Practice answering exam questions in exam conditions. Time yourself. Feel free to do any questions you have already done to see if you understood them.
Have an early night, the day before the actual exam. On the day of the exam, make sure you have breakfast. You can't take an exam on an empty stomach. Last minute cramming won't work now. So just relax.
Try not to worry too much. Enjoy your revision. You can only do your best. You will find that it isn't that bad after all.
