How Do I Prepare For My Gcse? Is May Too Late To Start?
It's May; exam season is just around the corner. If you haven't started revising yet, now is the time to get stuck in.
You still have some time to set things straight. Use the next weeks as focused, structured, healthy revision time.
Do. Not. Panic.
Over a couple of hours, skim through each of your topics, rate your knowledge and its importance out of ten, and see where you stand.
Based on your ratings, create a plan for the upcoming weeks and stick to it.
Print off a couple of schedules and stick one to the fridge. That way, your family will know what you’re working on and when you need to be left alone.
Five minutes after you get up, you'll be glad you did. The house is quiet and before you know it, you'll have a couple of hours’ work done.
For example, the PE acronym FITT = Frequency, Intensity, Time, Type. The more foolish the rhyme is, the more likely you are to remember it.
Do you need to remember an important scene from Macbeth? Act it out with a friend or family member. It may sound and feel stupid, but it will help you remember.
Reading through a chapter is fine, but testing yourself on it really helps things stick. Have a little brother hanging around the house? Grab him and make him ask you questions on your topic.
This is one of the most effective forms of revision. Past papers help you understand the exam structure, question types and wording, and time management.
Panicking is the worst thing you can do; you will end up wasting time on ineffective cramming – or throwing in the towel altogether. Use the next few weeks wisely; the summer holidays are just around the corner.
