Then students I teach are at an all-boarding school. This gives them a massive advantage in the revision period before exams because it is so easy to revise together. Working as a group is great for motivation as you can all help each other. It is a good idea to revise a topic or two then get together to discuss the main ideas. Why not create a test on a particular topic you have revised and see if any of your friends want to have a go at it? Zondle, Quizlet and Kahoot all allow you to create your own tests….. Or you could be old-school and use a paper and pen.
This picture too has a great message for revision…. Have a go at teaching or explaining a topic to someone else. I can think of half a dozen biology topics I never really understood until I tried to teach them to other people… Everyone is a learner and everyone can be a teacher!
Keep working hard – it will be worth it in the end….. But please get enough sleep. It is the commonest mistake I encounter with Y11 students and working too late in the evening can have a seriously negative impact on your exam performance. However tempted you are, don’t do it!
