Alternative revision tips

April 01, 2019

There’s more to revising than cue cards and highlighters! Check out some alternative revision tips in our infographic to help when preparing for exams…

  • Teaching a concept to friends and family will help your child to understand it for themselves, becoming a master of their subject!
  • Did you know that smelling rosemary improves results? Northumbria University found pupils working in a room with the aroma of the herb achieved 5-7% better results in memory tests. Time to get the cupboards stocked!
  • If you’re looking for fun ways to mix up revising, making up a song can be a great way to aid retention and improve English language skills.
  • Feeling sleepy? Research shows that just the smell of coffee wakes up the brain and may help people perform better in analytical tests. So why not make a nice cup of coffee while your child is revising?

We hope these ideas have given you something to think about! If you’d like further advice and support with preparing for exams, come and see your local Explore Learning team to find out how we can help.
