Exam Hints and Tips

Exams are just around the corner and it’s that time of year where you might be starting to feel the strain. The exam period is a stressful time and many young people struggle with what seems like endless amounts of revision and the ever-looming knowledge of the exam period rapidly approaching. But fear not, there are some really great hints and tips to help you de-stress and feel ready for your exams.

Plan ahead

Make sure you know the dates and times for your exams ahead of time including any extra information for example, which buildings or venues you may be taking exams in. This will help you feel more prepared and you can focus revision on certain subjects depending on when the exam is.

Make a revision timetable

If you make a revision timetable it will make it easier to motivate yourself to sit down and get some revision done. This will also help you manage your revision for each subject so you know you’re getting enough done.

Use resources

Use as many resources as you can to revise such as textbooks, library books, revision websites, class notes so you can gain as much information as possible.

Change up your revision

Whilst you may find one specific type of revision quite effective, it’s always good to change up your revision and try something different so that you don’t get bored.

Don’t stress

Even thought it’s good to be motivated and  determined to do the best you can, you have to make sure you don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Try your best to have breaks in between revision so your brain can process what you’ve just learnt.

Good luck!
