Revision | Tips & Tricks

It is of course slightly ironic that I am sitting here writing this when I should really be buried deep in my Contract Law textbook. However, it’s a bank holiday and I have NO motivation so I figured blogging about revision should hopefully get me in the zone, whilst providing you lovely lot with some helpful tips and tricks.

*Disclaimer* – This is just my personal advice and you don’t have to follow all, or even any, of it – it’s just based on my experience of taking exams for the last 4 years. Here we go…

1.  Fail to prepare, prepare to fail

While revision in itself is preparing for exams, before you can even think about starting revision you need to prepare for it! Get all your bits and bobs together at the start to avoid last minute raids of the Tesco (student budget friendly) stationary aisles and you’re already one step closer to exam success.

2.  Make a revision timetable

Whether you’re sitting GCSEs, A Levels or university exams, chances are you have about 127219382 and 1 things to revise. To make sure you have enough time to cover all of this material, you need to plan your time effectively and put together a revision timetable – Get Revising are a brilliant website that I’ve used since my GCSEs to create mine!

3. What type of learner are you?

Before you start revising, it’s probably wise to go about finding out what type of learner you are – you might be an auditory learner (learn best through sound), visual learner (learn best through sight) or even a kinaesthetic learner (learn best through touch). Whichever you are, it’s best to find out now so you can tailor your revision to your brain’s needs!

4.  Clean body, clean mind

You’ve probably heard this a thousand times, but based on personal experience, my revision really was better when I was living off Nakd smoothies and All Bran rather than MaccyD’s and Coke. Make sure you get plently of exercise too, even if it’s just a gentle walk each day.

5.  Have fun!

Don’t spend all your time stuck in your room or in the library revising. Get out and meet friends, have some fun and give yourself a break every once in a while – everything in moderation!
