Revision takes place after you have finished learning the content in class. At the end of a unit.
Remember the 3 Rs of revision:
Refine it – know what to revise – check the spec, syllabus, unit checklist.
Prioritise areas to revise – focus on what you find hard. Identify gaps in knowledge. Know where the most marks are.
Revise it – use a range of active retrieval strategies. Use spaced repetition, revisit your knowledge before you forget it.
Review it – self-test, quiz and practice LOTS of past papers. Check if your revision technique is working. If not, try another.
