- Create a glossary for all no excuse vocabulary you’ve used in lessons.
- Create mind maps/ concepts maps to help you link concepts with one another and give a clear overview of a topic.
- Use the ‘read-cover-recite-check’ technique:
- Read over a key topic from your notes or student textbook
- Cover what you have read
- Recite from memory what you have just learnt. In some cases, you might need to write down or draw the information depending on what you’re learning.
- Check your notes or notebook to see what you’ve missed out. Then fill in those missed gaps.
- Once you have completed the steps, repeat until you are 100% confident you’ve now learnt that topic. All you need is a piece of paper and pen for this technique, but you can also use flashcards and mind maps.
- Most importantly, practice as many past paper and exam questions as possible. Make sure you are self-assessing your answers against a mark scheme.
- Practice answering a range of questions with different command words, for example Compare, Evaluate, Explain and Describe.
- Practice recalling, rearranging and using all the physics equations.
