How to Achieve at GCSE Monday 11th October 2011
Plan for the Evening A bell will sound at the end of each session – then you have 5 minutes to get your next venue. A bell will sound to start the next session.
Why Revise? • Regular assessments • Regular tests • Module exams • Final GCSE Exams • To show teachers what is understood and where extra help is required • To show teachers how skills are developing • The more revision, the easier it gets and the less time it takes
Where to Revise • In a well lit quiet area • If music is needed this should be low volume • NOT in front of the TV • NOT exclusively on the computer
How to Revise… Revision is NOT just reading through their notes the evening before a test/assessment/exam
How to Revise… There are 3 parts to revision… 1. Learn It – Find a method which means the information is learnt. 2. Test It – Writing down what you can remember after 5mins. 30mins, 2 hours, the next day… 3. Use It – Applying what you have learnt to past paper questions.
How to Revise… The handout has lots of different ideas of HOW students can learn the work according to their preferred learning style. Revision cards for KINAESTHETIC learners Patterned notes for VISUAL Learners
How to Revise… Test It • This can be achieved on their own or with help • If they can’t remember – LOOK • If it’s still not going in, then try another Learn-It style
How to Revise… Use It • This is the most missed out part of revision • Students are often given past paper questions • Websites are available • Fronter is available
How to Revise… There is helpful information on your handout regarding the use of exam board websites.
How to Revise… On the school website there is a link to Fronter
How to Revise… All subjects are on Fronter – some in a lot of detail. Some, like Media – have very detailed revision sections – from the clips watched to key terms needed, and past paper questions…
Your next session… Please make your way to the Canteen for your session on PLTs/Controlled Conditions
