How to revise for exams
Make a killer cheat sheet. I made summaries throughout the year and then combined them all at the end of the year to act as my cheat sheet.
Be familiar with your calculator. You should be using the same calculator you will use in the exam so that the right buttons and signs come naturally during the exam.
Practice practice practice exams! There is no better way to study than by doing practice exams. After you've done them make sure to review the sample answers and assessor's report.
Record every exam you do in a logbook. This really helped to see my progression as the exam day loomed closer and closer.
Use reading time to get a feel for what topics are covered in the short answer. Then start answering multiple choice questions in your head.
Move on from multiple choice questions after 20 minutes.
Spend until you have 10 or 15 minutes left on the clock on the short answer.
Use the remaining time to check through your exam.
