GCSE and A-Level Studying Advice

OK, so you have done the coursework, you have now come to the point that you have to study for the exams. These Revision Tips apply to both GCSE’s and A-Levels, and if you work hard at them, you will get your passes.

1) If you find that learning with pictures, graphs, charts and diagrams is easier, than revising with bits of paper, then do it. Forinstance if you were studdying Keats, then use a spidergram, this is easy to do. Get a blank piece of paper, write “Keats” in the middle and then start to write around it everything directly involved with Keats.

2) Practise writing short essays on your subjects, remembering the spelling, punctuation and grammer. If you want to, after you have written your essay, give it to a teacher to mark.

3) With a friend or a member of your family, give an oral presentation on your subjects. Get them to ask you questions and then give them answers.

4) The night before your exams, have an early night, do not do any revison, you will then feel refreshed for the morning of the exam.
