Try the following resources to help you with your revision

 

Flashcard apps and Quizlet

Save paper and the pain of trying to decipher your handwriting with a flashcard app.  Look for a version like Flashcards+ (iOS), which lets you create your own cards or import existing sets through Quizlet, a brilliant community site for students to share study notes.

BBC Bitesize

BBC Bitesize breaks down subjects into handy smaller chunks (there's a clue in the name here...) and lets you revise topics, watch video summaries, complete activities and test yourself as you go.  The site covers subjects from KS1 to GCSE.

SENECA Learning

Seneca provides a free virtual learning platform and free resources.  Seneca research has found that students learn 2x faster using Seneca, compared to a revision guide alone.

A big part of revision is getting organised and keeping track of your study. The Revision Ace app (iOS) lets you make a revision plan, record your time spent on each subject and track your progress as you go. Alternatively, you can create a colourful PDF timetable with the help of getrevising.co.uk, which will even suggest a schedule for you to follow.
