Revision Tips:

  • Use mind maps and postcards to help you revise key facts, formulae and methods
  • Display mind maps/postcards on the wall so they are constantly in sight
  • Use past paper questions to practise key topics, test your understanding and check progress
  • Get someone to test you – particularly on definitions, facts and formulae you need to learn
  • Revisit the exam papers you have already completed – do corrections, find out about any topics you do not understand (use mymaths and revision guides for support)
  • Highlight the key words and numbers in ‘worded’ problems to help you identify the important information you need to use
  • Plan to spend one hour each evening revising for your maths exam – pick one or 2 key topics to work on each day
  • Use your Personal Learning Checklist to identify the topics you need to work on (and keep practising those you do understand!)
