STABILO’s Revision Tips

March 21, 2016 STABILO

It’s normal to get nervous as you prepare for exams, but revision doesn’t have to be a drag. Make a plan and work in the best way for you.

First up, make a plan!

Work out how many subjects you have to cover and how long you have until your exams, then plot out all your times and dates. Why not use our Revision Timetable to make things easier? Spread subjects evenly across days and weeks to keep things fresh and to avoid getting bored quickly.

Get to know your work

You’ll find it easier to recall information when you really understand it. If you’re struggling to make sense of the notes you made in class and can’t remember what it all means, find new sources of information. If you work better with others, try revising with a friend.

Revision charts, timetables and mind maps are tried and tested methods of revision. STABILO point 88 and Pen 68 are perfect for creating amazing mind maps for different topics, while STABILO BOSS highlighters will help you pick out important facts and figures.


Putting sticky notes around your bedroom and in different rooms of the house can also be a great way of absorbing information. Your whole family will be experts on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night by exam time!


Colour can help you retain 50-80% more information as the brain processes this as visual information, so make your revision notes colourful with STABILO!

Exam day

Wake up early, have a good breakfast and stay positive! Don’t test yourself on specific facts and questions – this will make you panic about what you think you don’t know, rather than focusing on what you do know. If you’ve kept to your revision plan, and you’re relaxed, the answers will come.

Good luck!
