When I was asked to describe my past experiences and the revision strategies I used in securing success at GCSE , I initially jumped at the chance – yes, I had a Chemistry AS1 paper to complete in addition to the ever growing mass of work lying neglected under my desk.. . But with effective time management, I knew I could manage each task...
Firstly, there is no magic formula regarding exam success- but attitude, application and attention to detail worked for me! Rather than seeing the learning as a chore, I enjoyed the challenges. A positive mindset was paramount in every subject. Allow me to offer some practical suggestions.
These tips worked for me- arrived at because of trial and error. You should different techniques and find what works for you. Everyone can learn and everyone can succeed!
P.S. As explicitly stated in The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy “DON’T PANIC!”Mini-Biography:
My name is Peter Maguire, and I am a student in Lower Sixth at St Mary’s Grammar school, Magherafelt. I am currently studying Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology for A level – I have completed modules in a few subjects in January, and I am preparing to sit my first major set of modules in the summer exams.
I am working hard for this upcoming spate of tests, but I also find it important to pursue hobbies and interests- like football, reading or even just watching TVa healthy work/life balance is key to success!
