Support with Revision Techniques

Young Minds asked young people to give them some wellbeing advice for exam time and this what they were told:

  1. Always take a moment to just breathe, whether in the exam, before or after.
  2. Remember that school does offer support, just reach out and ask!
  3. Keep your work balanced. Spend time revising, but socialise and relax too.
  4. Keep a self-care routine so that your revision is the most productive it can be whilst you feel as good as possible.
  5. Break up revision with food and exercise to make sure you stay energised.
  6. Remember that results do not define you.
  7. Find a revision space and style that works for you: silence, background chatter, music with or without lyrics.
  8. Work to your own pace – everyone is different in how they work.
  9. If you feel nervous about the time pressure of an exam, practice timing yourself when you revise, or try some test papers.
  10. Plan in some treats to reward yourself, and celebrate when it’s all over!
GCSEs in England have been reformed and are being graded with a new scale from 9 to 1, with 9 being the highest grade. The new GCSE content is more challenging, with fewer grade 8s being awarded than A*s.
