Revision is an active process which involves grouping and connecting information, answering questions, recalling facts and testing your memory. An effective way to study is to connect new information to existing knowledge.

The benefits of effective revision are:

  • Revising helps you recall the topics, details and techniques you studied and learnt when necessary
  • Revising helps you build confidence in the tasks and techniques you have studied
  • Revising helps you discover your strengths, weaknesses and overall knowledge in these subjects 
  • Timely revision for studying helps relieve anxiety when it comes to taking an exam
  • Revising ensures students are well-prepared for examinations
