Follow our Top 10 Revision Tips to ensure that you are fully prepared for the onset of GCSE exams:

3. Make revision notes that summarises your class work and includes the most important information, formulas, dates or terms. Colour-coding these notes and creating acronyms and rhymes can help you retain this knowledge.
4. Use Revision Buddies multiple choice quizzes to test yourself. The beauty of our accessible GCSE app means that you do not need to be bound to a desk to revise and can use our software whilst you are out and about!
5. Own your mistakes. An extremely effective way of learning is by testing yourself, realising you have made a mistake and using your error as an opportunity to learn more! Each multiple choice question on Revision Buddies has an explanation written by experienced educators which can help you understand where you went wrong. Use a flashcard to make a note of our explanations to ensure that it will not happen again.
6. Master your exam technique through past papers. Revision Buddies holds a large bank of GCSE past papers and mark schemes both on our website and within our apps.
7. Moderation is key! Make sure you still have regular breaks as revising in smaller chunks will enhance your productivity. We recommend getting some fresh air or making a delicious smoothie!
8. Stay healthy and hydrated. Eat foods that are full of nutrients and get a good night’s sleep as this combination of self-care will boost your concentration levels.
9. Remain focused! Don’t revise next to your noisy siblings or whilst watching TV. Deactivate any apps that may distract you whilst you are working and rather interact with our revision apps if you are craving electronic interactions.
10. Lastly, stay positive and enjoy the process. On behalf of everyone at Revision Buddies, we wish you all the best of luck in your examinations!
