What is the best revision method?
The easiest way to revise is NOT to read entire textbooks, obviously. This is a major put-off. A simple way is to make notes yourself on the ‘main ideas’ of what you’re revising over. Keep them short, and to the point. If you have to remember lists, make some fun mnemonics to help you remember. Separate the notes into little sections so you don’t read everything all in one go. It’s important to take breaks in between studying – otherwise everything may go to waste when you get tired! Make sure that the notes are in a reasonable amount, not 100 bullet points in one section! And make sure you can remember what you go over. Once you’ve separated the notes, make some goals for yourself. Like: Study the first two chunks of information, then take a break (have a snack) and then study another three bits, etc. Once you’ve studied a certain amount or reached your goal, reward yourself with something nice. Keeping yourself motivated is vital. If you can’t concentrate, try doing some ‘brain gym’
