Exam Revision Planning

With exams looming, back in December I attended the ‘Exam Revision Planning’ workshop in the hope of getting to grips with my pile of revision! The session tackles a number of areas in order to help you plan your revision successfully.


We started off with a discussion about how we currently revise, to get everyone comfortable and chatting with each other.

Following this was my favourite part of the workshop – the VARK quiz. This tests which learning style suits you best – Visual, Auditory, Reading/writing or Kinesthetic. I found this really interesting and much more productive than the Buzzfeed quizzes I usually find myself taking to procrastinate!!!

I am a reading/writing learner which is what I thought I would be as I find writing out lists and revision cards useful. We then split into groups with other students who shared our learning style and shared our revision methods and techniques with each other.

Other areas covered by the workshop were how to decide what to revise so you don’t become overwhelmed, and creating a revision action plan to manage your revision effectively.

Keep an eye out for the new Revision Planning Workshops after the Easter break!
