My Revision Tips!



Hiiii everyone, I hope you all had a fab New Year - One of my 'resolutions' was to blog more, just because it's something I really enjoy and I love reading other people's blogs too! I'm going to try to do a post a week with a mixture of beauty and lifestyle related things, so let me know if there's anything you want to see!

So today I thought I'd do about something which is a huge priority in my life right now and that's revision tips ... Honestly revision is something which has taken me a looong time to master, whether that's revising for exams, or revising for car theory tests, there's just something about it which is really tedious and there's something about having no choice but to do it, which makes you erm.. not want to do it ... 





1. Get out the coloured pens

Make your revision notes as fun and colourful as they can be, even if this is just putting important words in your favourite colour. When you come to look over your notes and learn them having bright, exciting colours in there makes it a little less mundane! Also having key words of phrases highlighter will help you remember them! 


2.  Grab some snacks and keep hydrated

Keeping hydrated is really important as it will help you concentrate for longer, also when you sit down to revise grab a bottle of water and a flavoured drink, that way you can have the best of both worlds and don't have to get up for a while. Also, grab some snacks (I'd advise staying away from anything sugary) and use them as little rewards for everytime you complete a section of your revision! 




3. Make sure you have all the resources you need ready

This means that there's no excuse to keep getting up and getting distracted, when you have everything you need already there and ready you're less likely to wander off to do other things whilst looking for paper or pens. 


4. Give your phone to your mum or dad to look after whilst you revise

Or put it somewhere safe, in a different room, whilst you revise. If you're anything like me then this will help loads! One of the main reasons revision always fails is because of distractions, so when you limit them then you're more likely to have a successful revision session, yay! 


5. Only revise for a certain amount of time 

For me, I like to revise hard for about 40 minutes then take a little break. This means that I'm actually maximising my revision time and the things which I actually learn rather than just staring at a bit of paper for 3 hours 'revising'. 





These are my main tips for having a good revision session, let me know if you have any tips which work for you as I would love to hear them!
