It is recommended that you should start revising at least 5 to 6 weeks before your first exam, but it’s never too late!
Get some paper and some different coloured pens.
A ruler might help, too, if you want to make a table rather than a list.
List all the subjects you do and break them down into sub-categories.
English Literature, for example, may be broken down into the different books you are studying and then further into chapters/themes/quotes etc. Highlight or circle the different subjects using different colours.
Number the different tasks.
Mix your subjects up. Don't put all your nightmare subjects on one day, and the ones you like on another day.
Decide which tasks you should only spend short bursts of time on and which you should maybe spend a whole day on to get out of the way.
The second should be reserved for big projects that you won't get tired with.
It has been said that the optimum concentration time is 32 minutes so keep this in mind when deciding how long each session should last..
Allocate days for the big projects.
Do this first, keeping in mind you may need to go back and change things at a later date, so allow time for this.
Out of the remaining days, make sure you write down any other commitments you have e.g. a job, lessons, meeting, or social events.
Decide what times you work best and put the tasks that require more energy or concentration during your optimum times.
When putting the rest of your revision into your table put times down and make sure you start each day reasonably early.
Start your day off with something you know you can accomplish.
This will give you more motivation for the rest of the day. Make sure the next slot is something heavier so that you don't put off your worst subjects until the end.
Give yourself regular breaks.
If when doing your revision you are on a roll, you can always decide to keep going.
Cross things off as you do them because it will give you a sense of accomplishment.
Use your Exam Pal App to keep track of your exam dates and keep an eye on your exam countdown.
The most important thing - don't panic.
Make sure you get lots of sleep before the exam day.
