Pace yourself carefully so your brain is given its maximum support to help you pass your exams well.



·     Condense information down so you can remember it more easily.

·     Rework your learning by making notes, spidergrams, or bullet points.

·     Use BBC Bitiesize

·     Practice old exam papers

·     Give your brain time to absorb and reflect on your learning – so, from time to time, take a walk in a park so your brain will have time and space to think.

·     Watch a documentary on the topic

·     Don’t stay up all night before an exam your brain will be exhausted and tired when it needs to be alert and thinking.
