Ask any teacher what the most important thing needed to do well in an exam is and the majority will say a good revision timetable. Thankfully, if you have a workable revision timetable that ensures you cover your curriculum then you can’t go half wrong but without it, it’ll be hard to succeed.
Like any challenge you need a plan to successfully navigate through the potential pitfalls and obstacles. Having a revision plan in place keeps you motivated and focused, which is a major benefit especially in the long grueling curriculums in our modern educational system. Without a plan you could quickly feel overwhelmed, like there is too much to cover. If you over-analyse anything enough it leads to paralysis, what you need to do is take action and put in the time to devise a realistic and workable revision timetable and most importantly of all, stick to it!
By organizing a good revision plan you combat being overwhelmed but best of all is that you can measure your success on a daily basis. You can say after an hour or two hours or more (if you’re feeling adventurous) that you have covered this area or revised that topic and tick it off. This gives you tremendous peace of mind. Have you ever had a project or homework looming over you when you’re hanging out with your friends? If you don’t have a revision timetable you’ll have the whole curriculum hanging over your head leading up to the exam. However, if you have a revision plan in place, you can rest easy knowing you’re doing your revision, bit by bit, slowly but surely.
