It takes 10000 hours to master a particular skill. Therefore, a brain requires practice in this skill for it to embed. The same applies for intake of core knowledge. With the curriculums tightly packed with content, this leaves little time in classroom lessons to revisit past learning. The aim of revision is to reduce the amount of information relating to a subject to a series of key points. These key points, phrases or words prompt your brain to retrieve the information stored in it. By revising key learning frequently, the brain embed the information and can then operate normally under the pressures of the exam pressures.

Practice makes permanent, not perfect! Revision Matters With regular, well planned revision starting now, your son or daughter will achieve and exceed their target grades this summer. Without regularly revisiting their work, they will not perform to the best of their abilities. Key to successful revision:

Right conditions Quiet? Music? Water? No TV & No FB! Well planned revision timetable no last minute panics.

Regular breaks still plan time for hobbies. Incentives rewards are allowed. Time Management The largest pressure at GCSE level study are deadlines and time to revisit core learning. An extra hour a day of television, internet or computer game time in Year 10 is linked to poorer grades at GCSE, a

Cambridge University study suggests. BBC News 4th September 2015 Revision timetables: Working Smartly A revision timetable will help your son or daughter plan their time and achieve the most - avoid last minute panics and cramming. Be honest & realistic do they work best in the mornings, afternoons or evenings?

Plan in breaks for regular hobbies. Incentivise & reward. Keep each session between 45 60 minutes max It is WHAT you revise not the QUANTITY that delivers success. Revision Techniques

Different revision techniques work for different people. The student must find the strategies that work best for them. Simply reading over their notes is not revising. They need to do something with the information. Prompt cards Mind maps Post it notes Summary tables & grids Practise using command words describe, explain, analyse, discuss Teach someone else

Memory games Revision Materials/Books Exam board information is provided in your key dates and information cards. Targeted revision materials/books Be specific with general revision websites Sample assessment materials Past Papers
