Organisation: Revision Equipment and Checklists
Amy studied at the University of Bristol and is our revision blog guru. She only graduated recently so understands the pressures of being a student better than most, and is here to share her wisdom so that you revise effectively, smash your exams, succeed at school and write cracking university and job applications.
1. Getting the right equipment
Equipment is key, especially if you’re studying a Maths or Science subject that requires specialist tools. Find out exactly what you’re going to need for your exam, and make sure you get the right equipment for the job.
2. Making a topic checklist
Write down every topic and subtopic that could come up in the exam, and leave spaces to mark the stage you’re at with it e.g. ‘Notes Written, ‘Past Papers completed’, ‘Model Answers checked’.
This will help you keep track of progress and make sure you cover everything.
To find the topics your exam will cover, use the exam board syllabus, your class notes and the ‘Questions by Topic’ section of our website.
3. Making a past paper checklist
If you’re really into it, you could also write yourself a past paper checklist. This should list all the papers available, whether you’ve attempted them, and what mark you got.
Yep you guessed it…
