Year 11 Revision

How do I revise for my GCSEs?

Our experience tells us revision is much easier to do if it is broken down into 3 components:

1.     Learning and memorising the key vocab, knowledge and facts that you are being examined on

2.     Practicing how to apply this knowledge to exam questions

3.     Training yourself on exam technique

What do I have to do for each component, and when should I do it?
