Futures For You Revision Tips for GCSEs and A Levels

18th June, 2019

You might have seen our revision tips on social media. Here's a full list of our top tips for effective exam study.


#1: Remembering information about lots of subjects is difficult. To avoid information overload, it is recommended that you study no more than two subjects in one day.

#2: Use revision methods that suit your learning type. For example, If you’re a visual learner, make diagrams to make memorising information easier.

#3: Asking a friend or family member to test you on subjects can make remembering information easier – especially if you turn it into a game!

#4: Try to relax on the night before an exam. If you’ve been revising like mad until now, you will benefit more from a good night’s sleep than from staying up all night trying to cram more information in.

#5: Eat a good breakfast before your exams. While nerves might make food seem like the last thing you want, a rumbling stomach will distract you, and everyone sitting near you
