An Introduction to Revision
Trinity Catholic High School Summer 2013

This booklet aims to help you prepare for your forthcoming summer exams. We have high expectations of all students at Trinity and therefore it is most important that you try you hardest to meet or exceed your target level. Before you begin revising, it is important to check your target level for each subject. WARNING: Should you not meet your target level you will be given a 10 hour revision pack for EACH subject that you underachieve in and this must be completed to a very high standard. In addition you WILL have to re-sit the test at Saturday school. The Headmaster will be informed of your progress and you may also be targeted for after school classes and Saturday School. If you revise thoroughly, you will avoid having to give up your free time to attend extra classes. If you use this booklet to help you revise, you WILL reap the rewards when you finally achieve or exceed your target level! Prizes will be awarded in assemblies to those students who perform exceptionally well in their tests. Before everything else, preparation is the key to success. Remember to create a revision timetable so that you do not overload, or under load yourself. Revision should be carried out in blocks of 45 minutes. Factor in breaks for snacks, walking the dog, going for a bike ride. A sample timetable is shown below. Make up a similar timetable according to your own school day and stick up on your bedroom wall or in your study area to help you keep on top of homestudy and revision. Good Luck!

Features of a Good Revision Plan! No matter what the task, all good revision plans have the following 5 features: 1. List each topic in each subject. 2. Decide upon the area which requires the most attention. 3. Work out how much time you have before the tests begin. 4. Match the topics to the time left. 5. Tick off the completed work. The morning of the test: Have a good, healthy breakfast. Stick to your normal routine. Use positive self-talk. Imagine positive situations. Leave the house with plenty of time to spare. Bring water with you into the test. Exam Technique: Read questions carefully. Have spare pens, pencils and rulers at the ready. Give yourself time checkpoints. Underline key words in questions. In Maths, dont miss out any steps in your working out! Move on if you are unsure of a question. You can return to this later and guess at the answer if necessary. Distribute time on a question in relation to the number of marks that are available. Go back over your answers and double check them! Do not leave questions unanswered.

Mind Maps: Mind Maps are excellent memory techniques because, by using a mixture of colour, pictures and imagination with logical and Revision poster sequential information, they use both sides of your brain. Condense your notes and organise them by theme, main ideas and details. An example is shown below:

Strategies for Revising


For each subject your teacher has suggested a range of revision strategies, you can find this information within this booklet. Some of these methods are shown below. Find out more about revision strategies on this page and the next! TEST A FRIEND: Test your friends on their revision notes and have them test you on yours! Talking through previous lessons and what you learnt will do you SO much good!

Spider Diagrams: Before you begin revising a topic, you might like to test yourself and see what you know first. This will help you to gain an impression of how competent you are in a particular area, to see exactly what you need to revise and how much time you should be spending on it. Once you have divided your revision up into manageable sections and allocated time to each part, devote five minutes at the start of each study session to creating a spider diagram detailing all that you can recall about that area of knowledge. Write the title of the section in the middle of your paper and draw a ring around it. Divide the large section into smaller sub-sections by writing sub-headings around the main word. Use these words as the foundations from which to build your other thoughts around. Recalling certain facts and arguments will lead you to other connected information and ideas. Once you have written all that you can, take a look at your revision guide, class notes or text book and try to establish what has been left out. After refreshing your mind on the information you were already familiar with, your revision session should then be centred on filling the gaps in your knowledge.

FIRST CLASS: Use the VLE to access loads of revision resources and past test papers that your teachers have created for you!!!!

Imagine YOURE the BOSS! Now you can be the teacher! Imagine you were creating the test paper. Write a list of questions that might come up and try to answer them. Why not create a mark scheme as well what answer will be awarded FULL marks???

Hot Potatoes: Hot Potatoes is a software package that allows you to make five different types of interactive exercises to help you to revise. You can make yourself the following, based on areas of subjects that you struggle most with! Multiple-choice quizzes Short answer quizzes Jumbled sentence exercises Crossword exercises Fill-in-the-blanks exercises You can access this brilliant software at http://hotpot.uvic.ca/. What have you got to lose? Simply download the software and get cooking up a storm of learning!! Dont half bake your revision! Cue Cards: Note/cue cards are always really handy for when you're out and about. List definitions and rules you need to know. Or write key words from which you can fill in the gaps to tell the whole story. These are also (very!) handy for learning language vocabulary. You can buy index cards in any good newsagent that will be a convenient size once cut in half, or buy ready made ones. Once filled in, these cards will allow you to reclaim time that would otherwise be wasted - on the bus, in the queue at the supermarket - there's no limit. Dont forget to place on key word on one side of the cue card and the definition of the word on the other side of the card. Get Mum or Dad or even your Grandma or Grandpa to say the key word and test you on the definition!

Audacity is a FREE piece of software that you have been introduced to in ICT lessons. You can use Audacity to record your revision notes and cut, copy or mix sounds together. Play them back, especially if you are an aural learner, and listen to your words being said back to you. This will help to solidify your revision. Dont forget that you can record your voice onto iPods and iPhones when you are on the bus with your headphones in, no one will ever know that you are listening back to your class notes rather than the latest Will-i-am track!

AO4 Present - a personal response what did you enjoy & why?

Hints & Tips for Preparation:


Drawing is making a mark. Making marks is what creates an image. Zoom into an area of the still life / object Look carefully at the shapes that you see Draw lightly, transferring the shapes and structures you are looking at fill the page Start to look for the light and the dark Vary the pressure of your pencil to create the tones you see Aim for 4 tones black, dark grey, light grey & white Make your drawing look 3D by using directional shading you are giving it form. In order to create an image you must believe you can make those marks into a work of Art.

Within your project:


Experiment with a range of materials e.g. collage, biro, felt tips, colour pencils, different types of paint/ pastels etc. After experimentation choose the method you like best Evaluate all the work you produce record your thoughts and ideas, comment on how your ideas have developed, what you think has worked well and what you can do to improve it.

Mind maps help you to generate ideas and make associations & links. They can also act as a powerful memory aid because they are visual. Read your lesson notes and make a mind map. Colour, symbols and pictures can be included on your mind map to make it more memorable. Make a poster of key words, with illustrations and put it up in your bedroom, your bathroom, the kitchen, somewhere you will see it every day. Highlight key words with highlighters to make sure you dont forget the important information. Make cue cards of key words. A good way of remembering important processes, diagrams and terminology is through cue cards. Be creative. Draw colourful images that help you remember what is on the card! Decorate your room with Posters!! Make your room a revision centre! Use a bright array of coloured paper; post it notes and images all over your wall. This way, whatever you're doing you are constantly looking at your revision notes! Ask your teacher for a How todraw a line graph worksheet. Practice this skill.
