  • FOCUS
    • Identify a distraction that you need to get rid of to help you to focus better.
    • Choose a subject you need to prioritise improving in. Which topics and techniques have you had difficulty with.
  • DON'T GIVE UP
    • Find examples from your past work of revision techniques you have already tried: flashcards, summary sheets, diagrams, mindmaps, practice questions? Leave them out to refer back to over the coming weeks.
  • HAVE A GO
    • Redo a question you got wrong in the recent past. See if you have learnt from the mistakes you made and improved on it. This is at the heart of effective revision: revisit and improve.
  • KEEP IMPROVING
    • Find some good work that you've done and stick it up in front of you. Be proud of it and let it remind you about what you can achieve.
