Subject Revision Chart

The Revision Chart below shows 25 minute revision sessions with a 5 minute break at the end of each session.

Creating a varied approach to subject revision will help keep your concentration and motivation high and prevent procrastination or avoiding the revision of topics. It may be beneficial to begin with a 20-25 minute revision of a topic you have revised before, see (P.E.E.T © Revision Method column, on the Revision Chart below).

Begin the revision (without looking at a previous revision of the topic) by writing in your own words using a mind map, what you can recall on the topic. When finished check the previous revision sheet on the topic to see if you have left out any important points in the new revision page you have just completed. This approach to revision will help you to mentally ‘warm up’ and get you in the ‘mood’ for study.

Alternatively you may begin by revising a subject or topic you like or that is important, for approx. 20-25minutes.

It may also be useful to revise more challenging material or exam topics in the middle section e.g. between 6.00 p.m. and 7.30 p.m. (see Revision Chart below). At this stage you are more likely to be in the ‘flow’ of studying and may handle more challenging revision material better.

It is also important to include a revision of the topics/material you have covered in class each day, in your daily revision schedule.

Class homework given by subject teachers’ may help with your revision of Today’s class topics/material.
