Revision Tips! :)
I am currently revising for my upcoming exams and yes it can be hard and tiring but, it would be worth it when all that hard work gets you the high grade. One tip i would advice is starting months, weeks back so that you are more prepared. Leaving things to last minute can be stressful and you may end up struggling from trying to remember all the information you tried to revise for from last night!
Another tip would be dont spend so much time on trying to make your notes look pretty. Yes, it is nice when its all neat however, you would end up spending more time on how your notes look rather than actually revising the information on the notes.
When revising do not sit in one place without taking mini breaks. It is best to take mini breaks in between the revision so that you can feel concentrated again and feel more relaxed. when sitting in one place for 3 hours without a break it is more likely that the brain would only remember the first hour of the revision practise and the other 2 hours would be no use.
Also, DO PAST PAPERS! This is the best way to revise. It can help because it will give you an idea on the type of questions that may get asked and the wording of the question. Past Papers can also help as similar questions may get asked so, you would be more familiar when it comes to the real exam.
