 Revision Tips

Getting started on your revision isn't easy, here's some helpful ways to keep you focused...

  • Create a revision timetable and allocate time each day to revise subjects.
  • Practice mental arithmetic often and in small chunks, timing yourself between questions.
  • Pick a focus for your revision each day.
  • Work on areas that have been taught at school which you may feel you need longer on, (ask your teachers if you need advice about this.)
  • Revise in a space you feel is quiet and can concentrate.
  • Allow yourself treats for good revising sessions!
  • Make the effort to concentrate in class.
  • Complete homework - it is there to consolidate learning that you have completed.
  • Sleep plenty.
  • Relax! The more stressed about SATs you get the more likely you are to underachieve. See this as a way to show off what you know.

To get an idea of the types of SATs questions you could be asked, have a look at these past SATs papers.

Be careful when looking at old SATs papers - the bar has been raised and you can expect to be more challenged in the new tests!

 

Below are some handy revision resources for you to download and print including a ready made revision timetable template and  maths day to day revision grids.
