A number of revision sessions are being run by faculties, after the end of the Academy day, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Details of some these sessions can be found here and students are encouraged to check for any additional sessions, such as lunchtimes or one-off sessions, with their subject teachers.
Remember that using a variety of revision techniques will save you from getting bored and switching off. Store your revision resources carefully in an orderly way.
Avoid negative discussion with your friends. Don’t be put off or intimidated by anything other people say.
Make sure you have everything you need with you. Pens, pencils, rubbers, felt tip pens, calculators etc. Know what you are allowed to use.
Not too early, not too late. Avoid hysterical discussion and keep calm.
Things won’t always go perfectly, but if you keep your mind focussed and as relaxed as possible you should be able to adapt to any awkward questions or challenging situations. If you get stuck, re-read the question, think back to studying the topic in and out of class and don’t just give up.
It’s not the end of the world!
