Revision Timetable
If you don’t have one, make one! Look at all of your exams and allow plenty of revision time in advance. Cramming doesn’t work! You need to sleep to absorb memories in to long term thoughts! Use an online timetable tool, such as https://getrevising.co.uk/planner

The 7 types of question used…
4 Explain
Normally one or two sentences which form an explanation. This requires a clear or detailed account of something which includes a relevant justification, reason or example.
5 Use notes and sketches / annotated sketches
Mainly a sketched answer with notes to support or clarify particular points in the answer. ‘Sketch’ means ‘a quick freehand drawing’. Marks will be awarded for accuracy of the technical information communicated in the answer rather than the drawing skills shown.
Try some different techniques to see which suit you. Using a variety will keep up your interest and let your brain learn in different ways, although it’s probably better to avoid new techniques too close to the exam.
Some techniques match types of material better than others, so choose a technique to suit the media you revise from.
For some it's helpful to take time to re-work your notes and review what you've learned throughout the course. Well-written and well-organised notes save you re-reading much of the course text.
Your aim is to get to grips with important aspects of your subject. Divide the material into topics (this has been done for you), themes or ideas that you can learn separately before linking them together, and look out for particular techniques or processes that you need to know.
If you rarely write things by hand, always handwrite your revision notes to get your hands used to writing for long periods of time ready for the exam.
Revision Techniques and Tips
Re-reading class notes.
Pretty basic method or revision but can come in handy when you need to remind yourself of the key facts. Don't spend all of your revision time reading though.
Revision guides.
You don't need any more than one per subject.
Copying out key points from your notes onto small revision cards.
Make use of diagrams.
Draw your own diagrams so that you can remember them better.
Use mnemonics to help you remember certain patterns or sequences.
A mnemonic is a way of helping you remember information using abbreviations, words or phrases. For example, to remember the colours of the rainbow, you could use the mnemonic: Richard of York Gave Battle In Vain, using the first letters of each word to remember the colours Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. Simple!
Make audio notes by reading your notes onto a cassette/Dictaphone.
You can then play it back to yourself whenever you like!
Write important words and phrases on sticky notes that can be stuck where you'll see them every day.
On your walls or doors... anywhere will do. Or use WORDLE!
Get friends and family to test you on various facts vocabulary etc...
This will help you keep your mind alert and it will give you an idea as to how much you really know.
Share ideas with friends and give support to them when they need it.
They should do the same for you!
Revision Techniques and Tips
Index cards, mind maps and notes
Use to record key points
Incorporate pictures, colour, highlighting
Learning posters and visual material
Use pattern, colour, symbols and drawings
Cover key points and topics
Develop diagrams for your course if relevant
Pin them up where you’ll see them often
Key words, phrases, themes or concepts
Use the course introductions, summaries, key questions to
discover what’s key in each block
Use two or three sentences to define, add course example and diagram if relevant
Summary tables or grids
Compare or evaluate competing theories or key people
Teach someone
Teach a topic to a fellow student or a friend
Thinking it through is effective revision
Fill in the gaps in your knowledge as you identify them
Reinforce your memory
As you end a revision session, review key points
Review again regularly
Revision Techniques and Tips
Don’t be a fool and consider it cool to avoid doing any revision for your exams!!! What a waste of an 11 year education!!!
The better results you get at GCSE the more options you will have in the long run. Employers, colleges etc. expect at least 5 good GCSEs A* - C including maths and English!!! Can Catering be one of your ‘good’ GCSEs??? Let’s make it so!!!
Revision is as important as your project work and it’s vital you remember this.
I’ve given you the tools you need but it is now up to you to put them to good use. Good luck 
Revision Techniques and Tips
WISHING YOU ALL THE VERY BEST OF LUCK!!
* Many areas of the Hospitality revision overlaps with Catering. Hospitality revision packs provided by me (I.E. section by section) will
only
cover the areas NOT already covered in Catering revision.
