Planning your Revision

Remember to divide your time into three sections:
  • Filter (30%)
  • Learn (30-40%)
  • Test (30-40%)
The approximate amount of time you should spend on each element is given above in brackets.

You need to vary your activities and make sure you re-visit and re-test elements you have already completed revision on.


Filter your knowledge for each module. Use the PLCs to help you work out what you need to revise. Create an overview of the module.

Use the vocab lists, alongside the PLCs, to help you prioritise your revision.


Now you have identified what you need to learn you need to create some resources to help you do this, or undertaken activities to address those areas identified.

Now is the time to make mindmaps, flashcards, posters - anything you need to help you learn those tricky topics.

Activities could include:
  • Mindmapping
  • Flash cards
  • Using memrise
  • Using the games and learning vocab on Quizlet  - if you aren't already signed into a class see Miss Nicholas or on the search bar type in senoradavenport Year 11
  • Using GCSEPod and making notes
  • GCSE Revision guide


Class code:  e3n8g6p19o  

This is the key part - and the one which we do least of.

You can test yourself in lots of different ways - it doesn't have to be with a test set by your teacher.

Ideas for testing include:
  • using Quizlet
  • creating your own test and using it a week later
  • working with friends to create quizzes for each other
  • completing activities on seneca learning (class code above)
  • past papers
  • GCSEPod assignments
  • GCSE revision guide practice questions/ tasks. (Remember the answers are at the back of the book)
