Exam Revision Time

It’s that time again in the northern hemisphere where learners are preparing for their end of year exams and in the southern hemisphere they’re getting ready for continuous assessment and mid-year exams. Education Umbrella Revision Enter a caption Enter a caption

Revising for exams and preparing for assessment is no mean feat. Some top tips will always come in handy.

However, if you quickly search revision tips in Google, you get overwhelmed with millions of hits.

Of course, this just leads to a wealth of questions:

  1. How do you know which ones to listen to?
  2. What are the best revision tips out there?
  3. How should you revise?

Well, I was going to write up a whole post about the most important tips – the ones which have served me and my learners well time and time again – but then fortunately I came across this amazing infographic from the people at Education Umbrella, who have synthesised the top tips into one cool slide.

What’s great about these tips is that:

  • They aren’t based on any niche or outlandish methodology
  • They’re tried and tested approaches
  • They work time and time again

Revision is one of those tasks that you just have to get on with. Knowledge won’t go into your brain without plenty of understanding and repetition. One of the tips is a good example of this: “Try to teach the information to somebody else” – to do that you’ll need to understand it first and you’ll need to be able to repeat it correctly again and again and again.

Like the others, a simple but very effective revision tip.

And on that note, I’ll let you get on with your revision and wish you the absolute best of luck in your upcoming exams and assessment!
