    Guide for Parents and Students

    QEGS 'How to Revise' Guide for students

    The basics:
    • Find a quiet and tidy space where you can work
    • Switch off/hide your phone and other electronic devices so that you are not distracted - better still hand them to your parents/carers!
    • Make sure you have the equipment you will need, for example, your exercise books for the subjects you are revising/preparing for, textbooks, revision guides, paper, pens, pencils, highlighters etc.
    • Are you hungry? Get something to eat - you learn best when you are not hungry
    • Are you thirsty? Make sure you have some water nearby

    How often do I revise?

    The timetables you have been provided in this booklet are guides. You might need to revise some subjects more often than others because it is a subject that you find more challenging. As a general rule, little and often is the best way.

    • The revision timetable provided means that you will revise each subject you study at least twice a week. Revise actively for 30-60 minutes for each subject scheduled for that day. If there are two subjects to revise, then you will revise for a maximum of two hours.
    • Take a break after each subject. Do something completely different to the task you have been doing. A form of exercise is a really good way to switch off and have an effective break. Perhaps go for a walk, kick a football around outside, talk with someone at home.
    • Split your subjects into smaller, topic based chunks. Your teachers can help you with this.

    Important note: Revision is in addition to the home work set for you by your subject teachers.

    More tips and advice can be found in the Guide above.
