10 Tips For Revision
Exams and tests can be a stressful time for most students, but follow these fantastic stress-free tips for revising… and you might find yourself on top of your game!!
- Study in a quiet place away from the TV and computers etc that is both light and comfortable.
- Make a ‘revision timetable’ and always let your family know when you are revising.
- Create summary notes and anything simple that helps your memory – as short notes, drawings and sayings are much easier to remember.
- Ask friends and family to test you. Also attend any teacher revision classes – as teachers will know better than anyone what will be in tests and exams!
- Record yourself reading notes and occasionally listen to them instead of reading.
- Take a 5 or 10 minute break every hour and do some stretching exercises, go for a short walk or make yourself a drink.
- Allow yourself some fun-time each day to relax…and make sure you get a good 8 hours of sleep each night.
- Eat well. Good brain foods? Wholegrain foods (cereals, wheat bran, wheatgerm and whole wheat pasta). Blueberries.Blackcurrants. Broccoli. Tomatoes. Oily fish. Nuts.
- Don’t panic if you feel a bit nervy. A certain amount of nervousness actually helps you perform to the best of your ability, producing a rush of adrenaline that helps you to feel alert and focused.
- Think positive – it’s seriously not the end of the world if you fail, but if you follow these simple tips – you’ll be sure to pass.
Now, it’s time to get your brainy heads into your study material. Good luck!
