Revision Tips

There are lots of different techniques to revise for exams including making a timetable, starting early, and doing practice exams. It can even help to find out what kind of learner you are. Here are some useful resources for expanding your revision skills.

Some study tips and places to look

There is some consensus to the best ways to be prepared, and therefore less stressed during exam times.

  • Take breaks. - It allows your brain to absorb the information.
  • Resist the urge to cram. - You'll likely remember less and you need to sleep to do your best.
  • Eat Well, healthy food. - I know it sounds like nagging but healthy food feeds your brain and helps you succeed.
  • Focus on yourself. - You are different to others, learn differently. There is also a risk of excessive self doubt if you spend time around a negative personality.

Some more places to look for information:

This is possible the only time a librarian will ever recommend Google. There are 100s of these lists out there by so many different organisations. Read a few come up with tips that suit your style. But don’t just ignore the bits you don’t like simply because you don’t like them.

 

One final reminder... VCE is not the end of the world. Your intelligence and ingenuity will still get you where you want to be, even if you can’t go directly from point A to point B, you will still get there. And nobody will really care about how.
