  • Make sure you check when your exams are taking place by looking at the Exam Timetable
  • Check that you’ve got all the revision guides you need for the exams – remember that many of these are available in the Cabin
  • Plan what you need to revise.
    • Every department has a revision checklist, which will tell you specifically what to revise for your exams.
    • Look at the Personal Learning Checklists for each subject and RAG (Red, Amber, Green) your each topic to show your confidence in each section of the course. Focus more or your revision time on the red and amber sections!
  • Plan out your revision – use the blank revision planner to set yourselves a timetable for revising each subject. Remember, little and often is the key, and make sure you give yourselves breaks!
  • Use the support timetable to plan out when you will go and seek out support from your subject teachers at lunchtime or after school
