Top 6 GCSE Revision Tips for Year 11's
Year 11's! GCSE's are coming up very soon and you may be struggling with revision tips and coping mechanisms. Do not worry!
Here are 6 tips that ERS recommend you should try if you are finding it tricky to revise efficiently😁
1. Create a Revision Timetable!
By creating a revision timetable, all the topics you want to revise are scheduled for a specific time and day. This will improve your time organisation skills and additionally, make you feel more productive. A timetable is very important if you want to decrease the time you spend procrastinating (or binge-watching puppy video's on YouTube😂😲😋🐶)
2. Practice the subjects and topics you hate the most!
If you spend your time revising subjects and topics you are good at and enjoy, then what is the point of revising them if you already know them? You should make yourself do the topics you are not good at, face your fears! 😏
3. Work with a friend!
If you struggle to work alone, grab one of your class mates for a study session at home or at your local library!
You can both help each other revise and go over tricky topics. One of you may be good at something the other is not good at, so therefore you should both encourage each other to learn.
Remember, if you explain something you know to someone who doesn't, your memory of that topic will improve! Teaching is as effective as listening and learning 😊
4. Take breaks!
You cannot possibly revise for 4 hours straight without having a few breaks! Try and take a 15 minute break every 30 minutes to refresh your memory, grab a drink and a snack, your brain needs feeding if it is working hard!😮
5. Get to know your learning style!
There are many types of styles, but the categories are split into:
Auditory: You learn best by discussions, one-to-one or in groups. You are good at learning in class or lectures where the teacher is a good communicator. You are usually slower at note-taking and do not like exams, you would prefer speaking your answers out loud instead of writing them down.
Try watching some online lectures, listening to the radio or some podcasts, the use of audio resources could greatly impact your study.
Visual: You learn better with images, graphics, charts and videos. You like to sketch out your ideas, expressions and thought processes as a way of communication. You prefer teachers who use hand gestures and descriptive language.
Try watching some online lectures. Alternatively, mind-maps would be a great way of expressing your ideas on paper. Try adding some symbols, images or sketches as reminders of specific topics/answers. Flashcards are also very effective for visual learners.
Kinaesthetic: This way of learning is more of a hands-on approach. You are a person who wants to do it instead of learn and write about it. You are very practical. However, you may prefer to think broad before going in-depth about a specific topic and some kinaesthetic learners like to take notes.
Try being involved in the practical application of a concept whether this is conducting an experiment or writing a report.
You should try creating a study environment that is applicable to you, make it immersive! If you like being on the move whilst studying, do that! Put some music on to keep you going if that helps you concentrate.
Reading/Writing: You tend to learn better with information that is handed out on paper, in books or hand-outs. You like to highlight the important sections of the text, keeping it colourful and keeping you engaged with the work!
Try reading books aimed at the topic you are revising and keep highlighting! Flash-cards are available everywhere which would also be very useful to your learning style. Read over your class notes for a fresh re-cap.
6. The day it all leads to!!! First exam... 😮😣
This is probably the most stressful day you will have in Year 11. However, try and calm your nerves by thinking you can only do your best! Be positive 😁
Remember to get a good nights sleep the day before and have a healthy filling breakfast on the day. You are going to need that brain food!
Try avoiding panicky friends if you can and take a few deep breaths. This is not the end!
GOOD LUCK YEAR 11's !!!
