TIPS FOR REVISION AND LEARNING

Recalling Information (Retrieval Practice)

Recalling information from your memory is one of the best ways to revise: retrieval means actively remembering knowledge.

Spacing

Spacing your learning means leaving gaps between revision sessions; it is the opposite to cramming.

Interleaving

As well as leaving gaps between your revision sessions, you should mix up the subjects and topics you focus on.

Testing

Testing yourself in timed conditions will not only test your memory and knowledge, but will make you feel more prepared for and less anxious about real exam conditions.

Dual Coding

Dual coding means your revision notes/flash cards combine visuals and words. For example, drawing small pictures to represent key facts or transfer a piece of text into a diagram like a mind map.
