Hey everyone, it’s Zainab, welcome or welcome back to my blog! This past week has been the beginning of public exams in the UK. My public exams aren’t until next year, but I know a lot of people who are studying for them currently, so I thought I’d share some of my advice for independent study at home!
Space Out Your Revision Using A Planner
When you get given the dates for your exams, I’d recommend you write them all down in a planner. You can then go in and space out each subject for different days so you have enough time to revise in time for the exam.
I’d also recommend you write down the specific topic you memorise as well so that you can go back to it if you’re still not 100% and can keep track of how much of the course you’ve revised
Use The Pomodoro Method
The Pomodoro method is such a good revision method that I have to recommend – it’s so great at preventing burnout! Essentially, the way it works is you work for 25 minutes, then you have a five minute break and you repeat. I really like this as you can allocate each interval for a different topic and then go back to it for a refresher!
Change Up Your Environment
This isn’t so much of a revision technique, but more a piece of advice. I’ve spent exam weeks just revising in my room, and it gets really boring and feels like my room isn’t my area of the house anymore as it’s just consumed by revision. So, try moving your revision to another room in your house or your local library so you don’t get as fed up and you can still be motivated to revise!
Thank you so much for reading, I wanted to make this short as I know people want to spend more time revising. Good luck for anyone doing exams for the next few weeks!
