Easter revision - the calm before the storm (or study skills can prevent panic!)
So how do you avoid being swept into last minute panic?
1: Plan a timetable allocating time to each subject. Work out how much work you have to cover and allocate periods to each block. Make it realistic; look at the time you have allowed and double it! Build in rest periods and any other activities (tennis?) you know that you will do. There is no point creating a work of fiction!
2: "Chunk" your work. Don't try to cover too much in one session.
3: Test yourself after each work block. Or rope in parents/friends/random passer bys and try to reteach the topic to them.
4: Make notes. Use colours, concept maps, post-it notes and highlighters.
5: Create flashcards that you can refer back to before the exam.
Most importantly.. eat well, be kind to yourself and allow yourself time to relax and recuperate.
