4 Ways To Make Exam Revision Fun
Sound the alarm, the time has come; exam season has kicked off. Which means we need to stop having fun and concentrate on passing those pesky exams. But wait, why can’t we do both? We have compiled a list of fun ways to revise that are probably more effective than slogging away for hours with a book.
• Mind maps
A “golden oldie” of revision, mind maps might have been something you have used since primary school, but that doesn’t make them any less effective. Mind maps are an effective method for increasing revision effectiveness, improving memory and understanding the ways information connects in a visually presented way.
Try using different colours for different subjects, shapes or symbols, to help with those troublesome physic equations, history, maths or even languages.
• Drawing and Painting
Let your inner Picasso out and unleash your creativity. Why not create some A3 posters to stick around your room? Using lots of colour can help retain 50-80% more information. Try writing out your English literature notes and highlight key quotes and findings in different colours.
Out with the late nights and cramming sessions and in with productivity. Making a timetable is a great way to stay organised and plan well ahead of your exams. You can also plan your breaks to keep your brain refreshed. Knowing when you can rest and take a break will help you keep focused.
• Get recording
Lights, camera, ACTION! Filming or recording yourself reading your revision notes and listening to them back might sound like your worst nightmare but it is a great way to go through revision. You can also learn while you sleep, by listening to the notes that you have recorded while you catch up on some very well deserved sleep.
So to conclude whether you’re revising for your GCSEs, A-Levels, or any other exam, break out the highlighters and bright pens and get colourful!
