What I love about Revision… well I guess my favourite thing must be the colours and pretty notes. That’s why I wanted to sort out all my notes now instead of rushing around later on trying to organise everything and not actually taking any of it in.
What actually works… well that’s completely up to you. I hate it when you tell someone how you revise and they go “oh no that’s the worst way to revise.” It doesn’t matter unless you’re failing all your tests, then you keep doing that. Your method of revision could fail on everyone else in England but that doesn’t make it bad for you. It doesn’t mean that it will fail on everyone.
Personally, I don’t have a set way of revising. I do a mix of things and most of the time it works. I guess I just love it because it’s nice to go over the things you know and make sure you are completely prepared for a test.
I am currently revising for a History, a Geography, a French and a Maths test which isn’t so fun as I have to mush it all in 2 days, however, I will not lose hope. I have made a timetable and set times for me to do things and as long as I stick to that I should hopefully get it all completed.
Thank you for reading my blog and sorry for posting so late.
I was sat at school, and one of my friends said to me, “Hey, did you know —- has already started their GCSE revision” and I said “No” and then they said, “Yeah well they started it last year, I only started mine in the summer holidays” and that’s when it hit me.
The teachers had always said in the assemblies, “Don’t leave your revision to the last minute” But when is the last minute? So I panicked. I thought that I was really behind everyone else and it just made me panic. Therefore making me go out and by about 8 folders and highlighters and promise myself that I will write up all my notes over the weekend.
I have to admit, it was really nice once I had set out all my folders on my shelves and labelled them and also to know that my notes will be written up soon. I know that I still have ‘loads of time’ but trust me, the past 3 years have flown by and I am not letting that happen with my GCSEs.
However, I had not completely comprehended the amount of writing up I had told myself to do over the weekend and add that to my 7 pieces of homework, 2 tests, not knowing if my books are at home and the family coming round, I very much doubt I will accomplish it, BUT as you all will know from my first post, I won’t give it up without a fight. Here come a few late nights. Wish me luck.
The past few weeks have been a bit stressful. I have had drinks flooding my bag, an open evening which I promised to help out with and trying to keep up with my timetable that I set myself last week… but that does lead me on to my next thing.
I managed to complete my timetable/ to do list…. yay (balloons and confetti) Woop Woop. And I am going to tell you what I used. (That’s right, I’m actually going to say something helpful instead of complaining.) An app that I have really enjoyed using is ‘Wunderlist’ There was something so satisfying with making myself goals and ticking them off, and I really recommend it. It helped me so much and I feel happy even though I had a pond in my bag in the middle of the week. 🙂
I hope you all had an amazing week
