The thought of revising over Christmas isn’t the most glamorous way you wanted to spend your break, but it’s important to use this time to prepare for your January exams. Revising can be a stressful challenge, but there is a way to find the right balance between revision and enjoying the festive period.
Take a look at some of our top tips to help you get the most out of your revision during the Christmas break.
Don’t Overwork Yourself
The best method of revising is working little and often. This ensures you aren’t getting too overwhelmed with information which can be a distraction. Little study sessions keep your confidence and concentration levels high.
Doing a little bit each day means you will still have time to enjoy the Christmas holidays with friends and family and not overload yourself with work. Once you have achieved a little it is also likely you will inspire yourself to do more.
Organisation is Key
Great organisation is one of the most important elements of revision. It will not only save you time as your notes are more accessible, it decreases your stress levels as everything you need is in order. Even little things such as making a note of what topic to revise for each day can help tremendously.
It’s a great idea to create a rough revision timetable, ensuring you can make sure you allocate enough time for each exam.
Work with a Private Tutor
If you find yourself struggling to stay motivated and disciplined during the Christmas break, enlisting the help of a private tutor is a great option for you. They will not only help you tackle your revision challenges, they will enlist homework and deadlines for you to meet to help keep you motivated and ready for your exams.
