I’m Isobel and I am currently on my gap year, before going to university. Every year for the past five years, I’ve sat exams. This doesn’t make me an expert in revision in any way, but it does mean I can talk about what I’ve learned from my experiences. Revision can be tiring and annoying, but is equally a necessary part of education. I have found ways to revise which are efficient and effective for me, and which motivate me enough to continue with every aspect of the revision.
At GCSE, I did modular exams and achieved 12A*s.
At AS and A-level my exams were linear and achieved A*A*AA, in Mathematics, Spanish, German and Religious Studies.
