How should I revise?

Past paper questions are a really useful tool to develop your knowledge. It is important you use the marks schemes to check your answers to gain an understanding of how to pick up marks and improve your exam technique. 

 

Flash cards are most beneficial to learn your definitions and key knowledge for short answer questions. 

 

Mind maps and brain dumps are more beneficial when it comes to long answer questions. Start with a key topic and branch out to display all the knowledge you have relating to it.
