Making A Start
1 - MOTIVATION
Think about WHY you want to do well in your exams:
Focus on YOUR goals and DON'T compare yourself to others!
2 - STARTING OUT
Don't waste time - Just get started!
Turn off your phone (or put it in another room)
Don't listen to music - it is a distraction
Revise in short bursts
Start with something small - ease yourself in
3 - MAKE A PLAN
It will help you to prioritise
Include ALL your subjects and topics
Identify times when you can revise
Identify when you can't revise too...
Make a Timetable
4 - TARGETS
Be realistic - make your targets manageable
Make targets for each session, each day, each week, each term
When you hit a target, give yourself a reward
Give enough time to tough topics
5 - ENVIRONMENT
Think about where it is best to revise for YOU
Close the door - shut out noise
Turn your phone OFF
Turn on a light
Get a comfy seat
Get a drink of water or cup of tea!
6 - REST & RELAXATION
Make sure you get some good sleep
Do something relaxing before you go to bed
Take some exercise and get some fresh air
Eat well - lots of fruit and veg!
Drink lots of water
