Revision: what to do if you've left it late

Film with GCSE and Nationals revision tips and advice, from exam survivors The Mind Set

Have you left it late?

  • Don’t throw the towel in. It’s always possible to learn something in the time you have available whether that is a month, a week, a day or an hour.
  • Focus on the possible. Don’t fixate on the things you don’t have time to do. Make good use of the time you do have left.
  • Prioritise. If you don’t have enough time to revise all subjects, decide what the key subjects are for you and focus on them.
  • Prioritise again. If you’re still short of time, choose the most important topic in each subject, revise it, then move on.
