One of the most common difficulties students experience with revision is in finding a revision strategy that works for them. That’s why we have created this Top Tips: Raising Grades in all Your Subjects booklet aimed at helping year 11 to do regular weekly revision in the run up to the Summer exams. It contains:
- Top Tips for each GCSE subject
- An Index of Useful Revision Resources – Guides, Apps, Websites
- A Programme of Academy Enhancement Sessions
Here is a presentation on How to Pass Exams that outlines some of the best revision strategies.
We have also discovered a range of highly effective strategies created by learningscientists.org. These revision strategies are specifically designed to ensure that students revise in the most effective way. Each of the six strategies approach revision with a different perspective meaning every student should find a strategy that suits their needs.
All of the revision strategies adopt a straight forward approach that make them easy for students to access.
|1. Spaced Practice||4. Interleaving|
