10 steps to Geography revision success:
- Revision space: Find a good place to work. It should be quiet and uncluttered.
- Revision timetable: Draw up a revision timetable - it's crucial. It should be realistic, cover all subjects and allow you some time off to relax.
- Make notes: Don't just read through your class work, make notes. One useful tip is to gradually condense your notes so they fit on the back of a postcard.
- Revision guides: Get a recommendation from your teacher as to which are most useful and then make sure you use them!
- Questions and answers: Write out some past questions and answers to see how much you're actually remembering.
- Listen in: Try recording your notes and then listen to them walking down the street or whilst you're in bed. Watch useful Geography clips on Youtube.
- Prompts: Put key words and phrases on sticky notes around the house, so you'll see them often.
- Seek help!: Don't go it alone. They say a problem shared is a problem halved. So, get friends and family on board to help you revise.
- Past papers: Make sure you get hold of some past papers, they're a really good way of knowing what to expect in the exam.Go to www.aqa.org.uk for more info...
- Relax: If you panic you're lost! The exams are going to happen so you might as well give yourself the best chance of doing well by starting to revise early and keeping calm.
