One of the important things you can do when you're revising is to max up your MERORY
In an exam you need yo be able to remember everthing you need INSTANTLY because you're working against the clock
How can you make your memory work instantly?
Well,first of all we'll look at how your memory works
How long does something you have to learnt stick in your brain?
A few hours, a day, a week, two weeks?
Well, the sad truth is that after a very short time less than a day after a lesson you forget most of what you learnt
UNLESS you do something to stop this forgetting process
What can you do?
You can REVIEW what you've learbt, and use Mind Maps
Revviewing means having another look: REVISING! if you review your work FIVE TIME altogether, your memory will be able to keep the imformation in your brain FOREVER!
So don't just sling your notesbooks into the bottom of your bag
When you get home, take a few minutes to check out what you wrote
It'll save your loads of revision time when it comes to exam later on :)
Without effective revision you gorget 80% of new stuff you've learned in a day
Scary or what?!
