Exam Revision Tips

Exams will soon be upon us. Don’t panic! Revise as often as you can, and just try your best on the day. We have lots of exam resources to help you prepare.

Here’s some tips for exam revision.

1- Give yourself plenty of time to study everything you need to. Don’t wait until the last minute to get started.

2- Don’t cram too much revision in at one time. Take regular breaks whilst you are studying.

3- Set up a regular study group with classmates.

4- Practice on past exam papers.

5- Study somewhere quiet (with as few distractions as possible.)

6- Make sure you let your tutor know if you are struggling with any subjects.

7- Borrow exam resources from the Library to help you practice.
