Can you organise these words into groups?
The Earth is split into Land and Water:
These use colour & images to help you remember
These help to organise information, e.g into an order of importance
Plan your revision, it will help you feel in control and, most importantly, avoid the last minute desperate cramming. Remember to be realistic in your planning, allow for the inevitable missed revision session.

Find the right place to study; it should be quiet and comfortable (although not so comfortable you fall asleep). Revising in front of the TV is not a good idea. You should have everything you need for your revision close at hand.

Location, Location, Location...
The average person can only concentrate fully for short periods of time (about 20-30 minutes), so it's important to take regular short breaks - but go straight back to work afterwards. You could try to divide your revision into small, bite sized chunks to fit in to this pattern.

Simply reading through your notes or textbook is unlikely to make the facts stick in your head. Write yourself some revision notes - rewriting things in your own words is a good way to make sure you understand them.

It's important to try past or sample exam questions before the real thing. It’s best if you can try some questions in exam-type conditions - no books or notes and a fixed time limit. If example solutions are available, these can be helpful in showing you what is expected.

All your revision doesn't have to be done sitting behind your desk. Why not make small revision cards that you can carry around in your pocket, and then whenever you get a spare ten minutes (on the bus for example) you can pull them out.

Talk to your teachers and you can add variety by doing some revision with your friends. Testing each other is a good way to find out how your revision is going, but don't be too worried if you are behind or ahead of your friends - everyone learns in a different way and at different speeds.

Start at least six weeks before your exams. Also you should already know what time of the day you work best - so try to get your revision done then. Once you have a routine - stick to it! Try not to work too late at night though; it's not usually a good idea.

Revising burns a lot of energy, so it's important to make sure you're properly fuelled. You'll learn better if you stay healthy - so eat proper meals and try to some exercise whenever you can. If you feel the need to snack whilst working, try some fruit or nuts rather than sugary or fatty foods.

The night before the exam, get a good night's sleep, wake early and have a good breakfast. Don't try to cram too much in at the last minute, at most have an A4 sheet of things to check over in your head. And try to relax as much as you can.

Congratulations 11G!!
