The Student Series: Revision Tools

It may seem a little early, but if you're in University or College the chances are your exams will be starting as early as January and in some cases November. It's a scary thought, especially as there is so much more information to take in. This in mind, it's important to get the best that you can out of all of the revision tools you possibly can. 

GetRevising is a good one by my books, and that's where I took the photo above from. You sign up for free and get countless revision sources, timetable help, flashcards and everything else you could possibly imagine at the click of a button. 

The Student Room is another one I found myself using quite a lot. This is full of student forums, hand written mark schemes, exam papers - you name it, it's on there. You can even put your own revision notes and tools on there to share with others and to keep somewhere safe for yourself, how handy is that?

Libraries. I know what you're thinking, but it's important to vary your resources and you may also find that reading into a subject is something you can do in bed with a cup of tea - you may even find you enjoy it. Having a broader knowledge of your subject is important all of the time, not just for exams. The better your understanding, the easier you'll pick up the information and the easier you'll find revising and exam time, it really is that simple!

Exam board websites are always handy to check as they post things like specifications, past papers, mark schemed and teachers notes. It's always pretty handy to get hold of a specification for your subject right at the beginning or even beforehand, just incase you feel your teacher has skipped over a bit or to make it easy for you when it comes to revision time - you have a ready made topic check list and you didn't have to do a thing!
