10 Top Tips From Paper Writing Service on How to Revise For Your Exams This Summer
As the summer sun starts to encourage the majority of us to spend more time outside, young people who are sitting their GCSE, A-level, undergraduate and postgraduate exams this summer will find themselves stuck inside with a busy revision timetable and an awful lot of books to work their way through! With exams holding such importance for young people, whether that be as a gateway to further education or as a step towards employment, it is important to get as much as possible out of the revision and work completed prior to sitting exams. Below are ten top tips on how best to revise this summer. 10 top tips: 1. Study in a quiet place away from the TV and computers (unless you are using a PC to write/typing your revision). The quiet place should be both light and comfortable. 2. Make a revision timetable and let your family know when you are revising, so they don't disturb you. 3. Create summary notes, anything simple that will help your memory, for an example: short notes, drawings and sayings, these are much easier to remember. 4. Get help from friends and family and ask them to test you. You could also attend teacher revision classes. 5. If you have a dictator phone, you could record yourself and occasionally listen to the recordings instead of reading. 6. Take a 5-10 minute break every hour and do some stretching exercises, go for a short walk or make yourself a drink. 7. Allow yourself some fun-time each day. This is to relax. It is also important to get eight hours sleep every night. 8. Eat well. Good brain food? Whole grain foods (Cereals, wheat germ, wheat, bran, wholemeal bread and whole wheat pasta). You could eat any fruit: apples, bananas, oranges, blueberries, blackcurrants, broccoli, tomatoes, oily fish and nuts. 9. Don't panic! If you are feeling a bit nervy, a certain amount of nervousness can actually help. It can help you to perform to the best of your ability, producing a rush of adrenaline that will make you more alert and focused. 10. Think P.M.A. (Positive Mental Attitude). When you think positive, it's seriously not the end of the world if you fail! You just try again. "If you don't succeed the first time try, try and try again." Now it's time to get your head into those text books and good luck!
