When should I revise? Where should I do my revision?

It makes sense to revise when you are most awake (and not tired) so set your alarm clock for an early start and place it on the other side of your room so you have to get up to switch it off! Don't be tempted to keep hitting the 'snooze' function!

Organise yourself using a revision planner and a calender to keep track of time see the 'What' page for more information

Anytime of day is OK, but if you find your mind wandering or you are struggling to concentrate you may be too tired and it might be better to stop and have a break before carrying on.

Do not be tempted to stay up all night working, you will not be able to revise efficiently and it will take you longer. You will also be less likely to get up early and revise in the morning (when you are most alert).

Location Location Location!

A good study zone will have the following features:

1) A designated workspace - table or desk

2) A comfortable chair

3) Room to work - free from clutter

4) Be free from distractions - turn off or remove the TV, radio,PC, laptop, tablet, mobile device, game consoles...etc

5 ) Be quiet - if possible a place where you have little disturbance from noise, if there is noise outside the room try playing music at a low level in your study room to reduce the disturbance (preferably instrumental music- choose wisely!!)
Prepare your study zone!

Invest a few minutes getting it ready (clearing some space if necessary and giving yourself room to work). If you need to work at a kitchen table then talk to your family and agree a time slot when you can use it. If it is not possible for you to have a workspace at home talk to your tutor or a member of the keystage team.
