GCSE and A Level exam time is fast approaching and if you are a teacher students in your school will soon be ready to sit their exam. This is also a really difficult time for parents who are trying to support their child to revise and to help them plan their time. I wanted to write this post to help with some revision ideas and advise that are generic to any subject and then I will also add some Maths specific advice.
Planning your time
Students should be aiming to do do 15 - 20 hours revision per week between now and their exams, however this should not be done in one solid revision session. The need to ensure that they are having a break of 5 minutes after every 25 minute session. I have a revision planner that is available to download for free with an aim to look at 3 subjects per day. These can be broken up with other activities in between and it is really important to include time to do those in order to reduce stress (exercise is great for that!). Head over to this page to download your planner and get started! Tutoring and Revision.
How to revise
Here are some different suggestions of ways to revise, you need to think of the subject as some subjects lend themselves to different revision techniques and what works for one person will not work for someone else so it is worth trying a few.
Maths specific revision advice
Most of all tell them to try their best and good luck!
