- Get organised: Encourage your students to sort out their notes and file them so they can find the topics they need.
- Plan: Get your students to make a revision calendar once the exam timetable is released. Suggest your students label their subjects red, yellow and green so they have an idea of which need more attention. They can then plan revision sessions to increase their confidence in red and yellow subjects and make sure they revise the relevant topics just before the exam.
- Relax: Stay calm! If you appear to be chilled, your students will remain calm and organise their revision without panicking. It's also important for them to relax themselves - stressed students won't be able to take in information, so suggest they get regular exercise in their breaks and make time for socialising.
- Group sessions: Encourage your students to work together, by testing each other on key topics or by marking each other's draft essay plans. As long as they stay focused, sharing the pain halves the pain!
