Revision strategies

  • Students have been taught explicit ways of how to revise via form tutors since January.

  • Whatever strategies students choose to use to revise, the key is to work in small chunks, test themselves to find out what they cannot recall, and focus on this in the next chunk of revision.

  • Parents and carers can help by playing the role of the ’tester’ and by keeping students positive:when they work out what it is they cannot easily recall, this is a good thing if it gives them the direction for the next step in revision.

When to start revising

  • Revision should start over Easter, if it has not already started.

  • Students should remember to include thinking about content covered in Year 10.

Please downloaded the PowerPoint below which gives more information and tips on how to support your child through their revision.
