Should I be revising?Monday, March 02, 2015 12:00 AM
This is a question I’ve been asking myself recently. It’s February half term and even though my exams are in the summer, there’s a nagging voice in my head telling me that I should put some of my time to good use, and at least go over what I’ve studied so far.
For those of you who haven’t even thought about summer exams yet, this post is by no means here to stress you out. Everyone revises at different speeds and intensities, and whilst starting early may be helpful for some of you, for others it’s likely that now is a time to focus on coursework or other work instead.
If, like me, you’ve been wondering about revising, why not try making a revision timetable. Get a pen and paper (or use an app if you prefer) and map out when you’re likely to have time for revision. For me, this really helps me see how much work I will be able to do by the time exams start, and then I can work out when I should start revising.
So, it turns out from my timetable that the nagging voice was right. I’m planning on starting revision soon, and building up the amount I do until it gets to exam time. By starting revising a bit earlier this year, hopefully I’ll have less work to do when the stressful period of study leave begins. Enjoy half term, and if you are revising now, good luck!
