Make your revision manageable:
- Create a revision plan, but make sure that it includes social activities and breaks
- Break down the revision into smaller ‘chunks’. Work through one section at a time
- Create a visual record of how the sections are related, using a mind map or spider diagram
- Mix up the subjects that you revise so that you don’t get too bored.
- Don’t do more that 45 minutes’ work before taking a break.
