Keep calm and do your best
Exam season is upon us and we know it can be a stressful time. We’ve put together our top revision tips to help you through the next few weeks.
Set your alarm and get an early start – get ready for a productive day ahead
Turn your phone off – avoid distractions whilst you’re revising. Save catching up on social media as a treat for when you’ve finished.
Find a quiet space – sit in a quiet room where you can concentrate
Re-write your notes – use coloured paper or pens to categorise your notes and create memory maps or summarise topics
Test yourself – try out past papers and get friends or family to ask you questions
Go for a walk – fresh air and exercise can help to reduce stress and give you time away from your studies to rest your mind or organise your thoughts
Reward yourself – have a treat when you reach the end of a chapter – a piece of fruit, a biscuit or your favourite chocolate bar
Drink plenty of water – you de-hydrate when you’re concentrating, so make sure you drink plenty of water to keep your brain in tip top condition!
Get a good night’s sleep – switch off the night before an exam and get a good night’s sleep, it’ll help you concentrate better during the exam.
Keep calm and do your best!
Good luck from all of us at The Manchester College!
