Best approach to planning revision
1. Students use a specification to plan their revision for each subject
2. RAG rate each topic within a subject
3. Tick off that they are 'Revision ready' for each topic
4. Work through each topic, starting with the REDs!
5. Tick off once revision has been completed for a given topic
Rough estimate of time needed
RED = 2 hours
Amber = 1 hour
Green = 30-45 mins

Flashcards...why use them?
1)They are great for
..No one likes it, but
needs to do it.

are a good way to do this because you
learn as you make the cards
, and then you have an excellent resource to
test yourself
) from,
over and over again
, until you know the answers.

Write the answer on the other side. 
On the other side, write "Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune".
Make up several - or dozens - of such cards.
 You could colour code them for different subjects - for example, have all
cards for
, and
cards for

Increase the complexity for essay exams
. If you are reviewing for an essay-based exam, make the information on the back side of the cards more
so that you can see the word (for example, "Romeo") and be able to recall several points showing his
for Juliet, several points showing the complexity of his
advantages and disadvantages
of Shakespeare's portrayal of him, what the
is, etc.
Put the flashcards in order, Or, randomly stack them, anyway you like.
It can be helpful to put all the questions in each category together (and number each card in the corner so you can put them in an order). Put the title card at the top of the pile before putting a rubber band around them all for safe keeping.
So how do you use them to revise?
Pick up the first card and read the keywords/phrase.
Try to recall as much of the information as you can.
Flip over the card and see if you got the answer(s) right.
If you're happy you got the information right, put that card on the 'right' pile. If you got the information wrong or incomplete, put it on the 'wrong' pile.
And now, it is time to get you involved. You need to make a minimum of 6 cards in 10 minutes!

Make your own flashcards using a pack of index cards and a black marker pen.
Coloured cards work best, so you can categorize your flash cards. Plus, they're easier to look at and study from.

Take the first index card and write the subject you are studying for in big letters.
 For example, write "SCIENCE" in block letters. Write the topic name smaller in the card's margin (or the top). This card then becomes the top of the pile card that tells you which set of flashcards you're using.
Write the key word on the first card.
 On one side of the card, write a very brief cue, key word or phrase, or possible exam question. For example "Solar system planets (in order of closest to sun)".
Begin revising using the flashcards.
 Surprise! You've already been revising. By writing down the questions and answers on your flashcards, you've begun the revision process already.
Now, you need to start reviewing.
You will need to read all of your flashcards (both questions and answers) either silently or aloud.
Testing yourself. 
When you have made multiple cards, it's time to test yourself. Here's how you do it:

What effective revision is and is not
effective revision is not...
1. re-reading notes
2. highlighting
'Memory is the residue of thought'
What we spend our time deeply thinking about, is what will be committed to memory.
Re-reading just creates the 'illusion of knowledge'.
practice exam questions
flash cards/quizzes
Massed practice = cramming during easter revision, or the week, or (!) the night before the exam
distributed or spaced practice = most effective way to revise
Spread learning out over time
...what they are not...
...and what they are...
Encourage them to revisit old topics
Parents/carers - we are giving you a 'round tuit'
Resources on revision
5) Use treasury tags to store each set of cards
