Tips on preparing for your exams!

Preparing:

On it own, cramming in revision just before an exam is not effective. If you create a plan for your exams, you will steadily get to where you need to be, with less panic. Remember our advice: LITTLE  and OFTEN!

Revision:

Hour-long revision sessions with short breaks between each hour are really effective. Marathon revision sessions can overload your brain with too much information to remember. Don't forget - regular breaks of five or ten minutes will help you to relax and ‘digest’ what you have just learnt more easily. If you haven't got any revision to hand, remember you can download a wealth of revision resources/ past papers on our shared year 11 revision folder. You can access this at home by logging on to microsoft 360 and using your normal school login/password. Just go to one drive and click on student/ year 11 revision. 

The night before:

A good nights sleep, avoiding last minute cramming, planning your travel (just in case) and double checking what you need for the next day- literally pack your bag the night before so when you get up you're ready to go! This will leave you a lot more stress free. 

On the day:

Get up and arrive on time! Remember we have WARM UP sessions scheduled every morning for the AM exam on each day- these begin at 8.00am. Make sure to bring water in a clear bottle and have a well balanced breakfast.

Good Luck!
