YEAR 11 REVISION

This page is designed to help you prepare for your forthcoming exams. Use the subject pages opposite for subject specific revision help. These pages will be updated frequently so please check for further website links and resources.

Five Top tips for Revision:

  1. Draw up a revision timetable – ask a staff member or someone at home to help you. Research shows that shorter 20-30 minute spells work best, because your concentration is much higher. We therefore recommend taking short, frequent breaks. We also advise to mix the order of the subjects.
  2. Exercise – physical activity increases heart rate which makes the blood circulate faster. This in turn ensures that brain gets more oxygen which increases productivity whilst reducing tiredness and stress.
  3. Find a quiet space in which to work – this can be at home or school. Some students like to listen to music while they are studying and others like complete silence.
  4. Use colour and visuals – the use of highlighters or mind maps can help you by identifying key words you need or grouping ideas by topic by drawing small images.
  5. Use revision guides, websites and past papers – practising the types of questions on the exams and familiarising yourself with the mark scheme or key points will help you to see what examiners are looking for.
