Revision Resources

Some revision resources that can be used electronically or printed to help students learn their course/revise/study for exams.

The key to exam success is breaking information down into more manageable, memorable chunks. These resources operate on that principle and so, when used as part of regular timetabled revision should help students remember information quickly and successfully.

  1. Glossary of Key Terms: create one of these for every topic. List ass subject specific key terms and check that you are able to define each of the key terms when starting revision for each topic. In the exam, you may get asked to define a key term so make sure you know your terms inside out. Ask family members/friends to test you, create a set of match up cards to help you memorise terms.
