I dont tend to rivise. The closist thing is usealy on the bus (for scince) i just get asked questions, and answer them so i know what i know.

Ive never realy known how 2 reives maths, i guess just rember trignomtry and pythag (traingles etc)

other than that its just maths :/ ( i droped down to intemided cuz top mnay forumul;as to rember in higher, )

your 14 you dont really need to start revising till yr 11, but theres nothing wrong with starting early. I have a bad memory too, and terrible at chemistry & french.. i find it best to revise from revision guides. if your that worried, which you seem to be, read your classwork over the night after each lesson.

Well my memory isn't to bad, It's just i can't seem to get my self to go to the after school classes, Maybe it's because i live far away from teh school, But i'll try to get going to them

Thing is i want to get good grades but i have so much other work to do it's unbelievable

I do my work and it's normally on in time, But it's just not getting to become a joke with all the work that i've got to do.

I'll see if i can catch up through easter half term but don't want to waste my time doing it the whole hoilday

Any more ways to revise

Revsion Tips:
Do some Mind-Mapping
Do Some Spider Diagrams
Play some games that will help you remember important facts (E.g. Think of 20 Questions for the Waekst Link and try to answer them yourself.)
Keep on writing out what you intend to revise (I find that this works with Latin)

Whatever you do DO NOT just read what you intend to revise - this does not help as you are not really thinking about what you are reading and your brain is not being stretched...


Hope this helps,
hellz... :)

Ok i'll try them, Thanks *REP ADDED*

I've tryed out a plan before you get a A3 peice of paper And put down all your revision and what you want to learn down on it, And you read it 2 times a day one at morning one at night and that way it sticks in your long term memory, I'm doing it now and looks like it's going well i'm aiming for a B In most subjects and i'm trying it now
