Look at each of the descriptions below to find out which you are, and our top solutions for how to optimize your revision:

The On-The-Run-Reviser

You can’t remember the last time you sat still for more than 30 mins. Your revision timetable is more of a “when will I fit in between dropping Sophie at dance practice and walking the dog?”. You lug around your course manual, squashed between your gym kit, food prep and to do lists.

You lug around your course manual, squashed between your gym kit, food prep and to do lists.

The problem: You have so much on, that getting time to sit and look at your course manual just isn’t an option.

How to optimize your revision as an on-the-run-reviser: Download your tutorials to audio, grab your headphones and learn whilst doing the more mundane of your daily tasks. There are some tasks that need your full attention, so I don’t suggest trying to squeeze in your audio tutorials whilst mid-conference at work, but driving, walking the dog, cleaning the house… these are perfect! Our Revision Mastery Series has multiple modules, all of which can be downloaded to MP3 or MP4, meaning you can listen when you are on the run.

The Super-Organised-Reviser

You’ve got this sorted! … or you appear to?

You’ve scheduled your timetable for revision, You’ve got the highlighters and post it notes… You’ve even colour coded your note books. You probably have your own space set up on your own corner of the dining room table all ready for study time.

The problem: You are totally organised, but don’t know where to start on the actual content. Usually, those that have spent time setting up their organization side of revision, are putting off the actual get start… usually because they have no idea on what to actually do within the timetable they have set.

How to optimize your revision as a Super-Organised-reviser:  Use a revision tool that has already chunked your studies into 45-60 minute lessons. This means you can simply assign one lesson/ tutorial per hour in your timetable. it will compliment your overall structure and make sure that you get the right work completed, allowing you to stay on schedule. Our Revision Mastery Series provides exactly this, chunked down modules, each no-longer than 60 minutes, so you can watch your video and complete the cheat sheet all around one specific task.

Heaven forbids a guest uses your downstairs toilet – You love to print off clear images and stick them to the back of the toilet door!

You find yourself distracted by noises outside… putting the washing on… making another cup of coffee!

…Anything but the revision.

The problem: You need to stay focused and have a strategy to keep you on task, and a learning tool that is engaging and interesting.
