  1. Start your revision with plenty of time to spare and make a timetable to help keep you on track.
  2. Take regular, short breaks each hour but not every 10 minutes.
  3. If you’re on study leave, try to start revision early on in the day so you can enjoy the evening (it’s important to allow yourself some time to relax too).
  4. Make sure you have water and a few healthy snacks to hand so you don’t waste time taking constant breaks.
  5. Sit at a proper desk or table – revising from your bed will make you sleepy!
  6. Revision cards are a great way to break down lots of information into manageable chunks.
  7. Don't waste too much time making your revision notes look nice – it’s knowing the content that’s important.
  8. Practice exam papers under exam conditions are a great way to prepare yourself for exams – having practiced, you’ll feel a lot more confident when you enter the exam.
  9. Get plenty of sleep – revision will be less productive if you’re tired.

We wish all our Maths Doctor members the very best of luck in their exams.
