Only 2 months to go to exams? Now is the time to get organised
What exams do you have in the summer?
Rate yourself for each exam/module on a scale from A to E
Those with lower grades will require more revision and will probably need teacher input - allow time for this.
Write out a topic list for each exam/module.
Rate yourself for each topic on a scale from A to E
Those topics with lower grades will require more revision and will probably need teacher input - allow time for this
Plan your revision NOW:
Fill in the exam dates so you know what your targets/deadlines are. Allow 1 week before each module for revising EVERYTHING and not for covering new topics.
Fill in the daily spaces in the revision timetable:
Firstly with module headings all the way through to your exams making sure you allow adequate time for each module in accordance with your standard for that module.
Secondly for each module fill in the topics all the way thru to 1 week before your exams, making sure you allow adequate time for each topic in accordance with your standard in that topic.
Make sure that each week you allow 1 session to be a revision of all material previously revised in that module.
Make sure you start each session by very quickly re-revising the stuff you revised in that topic in the previous session.
Make sure you allow 1 week per module for re-revising the whole syllabus (ie no new topics).
In your daily revision timetables, do not work for more than 50 minutes without taking a short 5 minute break.
When you take a break make sure it is a proper break - ie leave the room, drink some water, get some fresh air etc.
During the revision period make sure you get a lot of sleep, especially if you have had a good revision day.
During the revision period, and especially in the week of your exams, avoid late nights (revision becomes counter productive cos you will forget what you learned) and also avoid alcohol.
Avoid getting stressed - if you do feel stressed - TALK TO SOMEONE
Build in relaxation time into your revision timetable, but make sure that going out etc is a reward for revision accomplished and not a right because it is Friday!!!!!!!
Remember, it is worth canceling your life for 2 months now, in order to achieve a better life later!
