It's officially that time of the year, exam time. I thought I'd do a quick post today on my top revision tips, in the hope any last minute or on going revision can be helped. First of all my biggest tip is to be as organised as you can. Folders, timetables, revision notes, just make sure you know where everything is, keep it in a logically order and know when your exams are so you can prioritise what to revise. The folders in the photo are from Paperchase and I think they're super cute, one of them holds my Sociology unit 4 notes and the other holds my English notes. When it comes to English you may be able to see that my book Jane Eyre has got lots of colourful sticky notes coming out of it. These show me where useful quotes and sections are, again keeping me organised.
I also use simple note cards to write bullet points that I need to remember, making an long essay question much simpler by just having the main points then adding all the linking together bits when it comes to actually writing the essay. On the subject of essays and past papers, I know it's scary to practise if you feel like you don't know anything, but seriously it's one of the best ways to revise. Most teachers will happily take in practise essays to mark as after all they're there to help you! And finally pens, I find colours really useful when revising, having key quotes or sections in certain colours means you're more likely to remember them as you associate them with the colour.
As much as I'd love to say try not to be too stressed I know I for one will be a complete stress head in the next couple of months. But just remember, do the best you can and they'll all be over soon. To all of you taking any exams soon good luck!
