Anyway, yea..I've got my first proper GCSE exam tomorrow (English Lit) think my revision has been quite good. Just changed between subjects a lot, gave myself breaks and found different ways...reading alone, reading outloud, making notes, bbc bitesize, spark notes etc. Lots of different things!

You did indeed. Those are very good techniques. You have to try differnet ones to see what suits you.
Don't forget it is still not too late to revise now.

Last year for my GCSE's I covered my walls in notes....everytime I woke up I had a huge picture of a kidney in front of my face but it certainly worked!

I've had my bedroom decorated this year, so I can't put any stuff up on the walls but I've made some little key word cards with the meanings on the backs of them and this means that my Mum or my Dad or my sister can help me by taking them out of a hat and testing me.....

I'll let you know if it worked in August!!!!

Lol yeh :)

Ooh, I have some things on my walls too...but that isn't helping too much because I'm never in there!

Oh, and my exam went fine today...loads better than I thought. Any other people take the English Literature exam today?

Revise for twenty minutes on each subject per day, it is much better then doing lots and lots all at once, because if you do that, then you get tired and everything just falls straight back out.
It has been proved that if you do small amounts of revision seperatly, it works better then lots and lots of it all at once.

Hope everyone is revising loads! :D

I haven't done any since Friday....which is pretty bad, but I'm just not motivated enough to do it...even though I know I need to!

How is everyone else going? Any more good tips or links to good sites?

For subjects like Science, Geography, History etc. make sure you visit the exam board's website and download the specification of your examination. As you're revising have this to hand as you know exactly what you need and don't need to revise. I find it always helps me.
When you reach for the stars, you may not quite get them, but you won't come up with a handful of mud either.

Just remember to keep smiling!

Oh yea, me too.

Always good to actually know what you're going to need in the exam because you don't want to spend time revising things you don't need to know at all.
