Retrieval Practice

Retrieval practice

The Retrieval Checklist Card outlines the content required for each unit along with the text book and revision guide pages you can use to help you to revise.

However just reading through text is not enough (Read+), you must process it in some way. You can do this by using a suggested task from the Revision Task Matrix

Once you are happy with each section you can complete an online Quiz. Each quiz asks a series of content questions you are required to know for the exam.

You can complete the quiz as many times as you like as part of your revision programme.
