Revision strategies

  • Go through your textbook content, lecture notes and class practice/work with concentration daily
  • Pace your revision e.g. 1 Chapter every day
  • Make notes as you revise - using mind maps, note cards etc (research has proven that making notes will boost your memory retention greatly)
  • Go through the practice paper (attached in this email) and test yourself again. Sit down and write out your answers! 
  • Make revision fun for yourself! Sketch/doodle on paper  to help you retain information e.g. one student recalls the process of soil erosion entering rivers through surface runoff and causing sedimentation in rivers....

  • ​If you have any doubts, clarify with your peers or teachers as soon as possible. Take charge of your own learning. Don't wait. 
  • With preparation and focus, pwn the IH paper with confidence. Never let the paper pwn you.
