Do you find yourself constantly asking questions about what to revise? Do you have a hard time deciding on topics to study for exams because there are so many different subjects covered in A levels? If so, then this article is just for you. In this blog post, we will discuss the importance of having a revision plan, attending a bespoke Easter Half Term Revision Course and provide 5 steps that will help master your A levels!

Step 1: Be Flexible with Timings and Topics

One of the things that can make revising for A levels so difficult is trying to revise all topics at once, which usually ends up in nothing being properly revised. Instead, it might be better to pick your subjects according to how comfortable you feel with them or if they’re required by universities. If there are any past papers available online (and this depends on whether your school provides them), then try making a schedule where you study one subject per week while incorporating other ones into each day’s revision plan.

Having specific timings like these will help keep yourself accountable while studying! This way, even though some subjects may not seem as important right, knowing when they need to be covered will help you get them done on time.

Step 2: Develop a Routine

To make revision for A levels easier, try developing a routine. This can include setting specific times to start revising or having breaks in between study sessions. If you are able to do this then it will be much easier because everyone has different schedules and routines that they follow on an everyday basis, which is why it’s important not to compare yourself with others when planning out your schedule! You should also look at the amount of time you have before each exam as well as how many subjects you wish to revise for so that all of them fit into your schedule accordingly.

Step 3: Reward Yourself After Each Exam!

One last thing I want to mention about making A level revisions less stressful is rewarding yourself after every exam. Although you should definitely reward yourself after the final exam as well, I find that rewarding myself after each paper can help motivate me to study. This way, if things get difficult then it will be easier because you’ll know that at the end of this there is a prize waiting for you!

Note: Keep in mind that these are not written numbers or bullet points and instead they’re just sentences written from left to right with proper grammar structures.

Step 4:  Make Revision Notes

The next step is to make revision notes for each topic, which involves writing down all the key points you need to know. This will help keep everything organized plus it’s much easier than trying to remember every single detail about a topic! Although these are not normally required by schools or universities (they tend to want past paper questions), they can be useful when it comes time for exams because then you’ll already have some practice sessions in place and won’t feel like studying from scratch. It might also be helpful if your teachers provide their own revision notes but even if they don’t, this allows you more freedom with how you revise so that everyone revises at different paces without feeling rushed or behind on anything.

Step 5: Use Past Papers

Although past papers are probably the most important form of assessment for A levels, you should also try revising them as well. There’s no better way to find out what type of questions will be asked than by looking at previous examples! This is why it might be helpful if your school provides all old paper questions or even just some because this allows you more freedom with how you choose to revise and make it easier for yourself in general.

By following these steps on how to master your revision planning during A levels then I believe that anyone can achieve great results! All of these tips have helped me study for my own exams so I hope they can help you too!
