It's time to revise!

It's time to revise! Here are some of our top tips. You need to think carefully about effective ways to revise. Don't leave revision until the last minute. Hopefully you've been listening in class and taking notes. Rewrite these notes and use them as part of your revision. Plan your revision – make a timetable and stick to it. Let's hear from this student about her revision strategy.

Every day I try to revise minimum for half an hour, listening, reading, vocabulary, and speaking.

So Anna revises daily – spending at least half an hour on different areas of language. Let's hear from another student.

Student 2
Well, the thing that always works for me is when I revise with a classmate, so we revise together, and we check each other’s answers, and discuss mistakes, or errors we make. That helps me really a lot.

So revising with classmates and discussing your mistakes is another revision strategy. When revising, just remember: don't try to memorise everything. Good luck!
