Tried and Tested Last-Minute Revision Tips

Leaving revision until the last minute isn’t the best idea, however if this is the situation you’ve found yourself in, we’re here to help you - not berate you!

There are a few simple techniques you can use when doing that last bit of cramming that will help you retain more information, but we also have a couple of options for you here at Tutorful that will definitely help you feel more comfortable going into your exams.

Become a Teacher

One of the best ways to ensure you properly understand a topic is to teach it to someone else. If you’re able to explain a complicated physics theory well enough for your parents to understand, chances are that you’ve nailed it!

Having a go at explaining it to someone else will allow you to see it from another point of view - get them to ask questions and it might highlight gaps in your knowledge that you are able to go away and fill.

Ask Questions

The main problem with school is that one teacher has to split their time and attention between 30ish children. It’s practically impossible to have a full class of students that all have the same understanding of a particular topic. There are some areas your child will naturally excel in, and others where they may need a bit of extra help.

A session with one of our 1:1 expert tutors will give you the opportunity to ask questions about the topics you’re not sure about. They can use different methods and techniques to explain it so that you will leave the session feeling tons more confident and in control.

With a 1:1 session, the focus is on you and what you need to learn. You can choose exactly what you want the tutor to focus on - it really is the perfect way to ensure you understand the most important concepts of a subject before you walk into the exam hall.

Whether you want to learn online or from the comfort of your own home, we have thousands of tutors to choose from, and they’re all experts in their subjects.

Use Your Home as Your Notebook

What do you do whilst brushing your teeth? Stare at the wall? Read the backs of your shampoo bottles for the 5,000th time?

This is the perfect opportunity for some last-minute cramming. Write out important bullet points on post-it notes and fill your house with them!

It’s a great way to visualise your notes when you’re sitting in your exam. You will be able to think back to being in the bathroom and seeing the note with the formula you need stuck to your mirror.

Book Onto One of Our Revision Classes
