HOW TO REVISE FOR YOUR GCSE’S
Depending on what year you are currently in at secondary school, your GCSE’s could be in the next few months or even a few years from now.
Either way you obviously want to do well and achieve the highest grades possible for you, don’t you?
The earlier you begin revising, the better your chances of accomplishing your desired grades.
And the earlier you begin revising, the less stressed you’ll be when you finally sit your GCSE exams.
So here are a few methods to help your revise better for your GCSE’s.
Before you begin revision, its important to eliminate as much distraction as possible.
If you’re revising and you’re constantly being interrupted, you’ll find it very difficult to concentrate on the task at hand.
Your biggest distractions are mobile phones, social media, friends messaging you every five minutes, and listening to music while revising.
Concerning the last one, you must remember that when you sit in your exams, they are always in total silence.
Learn to revise in silence as well, so you can prime your brain to concentrate in the quietness of the exam hall.
If you must listen to music whilst revising because it helps you relax, then perhaps you should consider baroque classical music.
Studies have shown that listening to Mozart for instance could help you study better.
Go with what suits you best but remember, the exam hall is always silent.
Keep your revision space and room for that matter free from clutter.
A cluttered room creates a cluttered mind.
This is not the ideal state to be in if you want to revise and remember information.
If its not possible to clear your room from clutter, at least make the effort to clear your work space.
The only things your should have on your table are your revision materials and stationary.
Oh and a glass of water, not juice.
Its very important to stay hydrated because your brain is made up of around 70 per cent water.
If you’re dehydrated, you will struggle to concentrate and retain the information you read.
The first things you revise should be your hardest subjects.
This way you’ll have more time to work on them.
Read through your class notes as well as your study and revision books.
When you read, read out aloud so you can clearly hear your own voice and make notes of all the important areas with pen and paper.
The more senses you involve when revising, the more information you will retain.
A really powerful technique is to read out your notes aloud while you record your voice.
Then play back the recording over and over as you also follow the words in your notes.
Again more senses being used.
You could also try sleep learning by playing your revision at low volume while you sleep.
Try these techniques out and utilise whichever you find suits you best.
Do not make the mistake of revising for hours on end.
Every 45 minutes or so, take a break.
Go for short walk and hydrate yourself.
Your brain won’t remember much if you just overload it with facts and figures.
It needs time to process what it has learnt.
Two final points.
If you’re finding specific subjects difficult, write down what you’re struggling with and get help from your teacher.
And finally, do not revise when you’re stressed or anxious because nothing will go in.
Put your revision away and get some fresh air or listen to your favourite music for a while.
Do whatever is going to make you feel good and put you in a positive state. Only then should you consider sitting to revise again.
