Preparing For Level Retakes

Clear your space & clear your mind

Have you got enough space around you for your notes and textbooks? Is there sufficient light? Is your chair adequate for your needs? Try and remove any distractions so that when you are studying you are firstly making the most of this space, and secondly ensure that you are able to focus as much as possible on working. For some people music in the background helps to study. Take the time to think about what you can do to make yourself feel comfortable.

Use plenty of diagrams and flow charts

It is a proven fact that written plans enhance the learning process by helping you digest information in a more manageable way. If you have a challenging topic, try and write down everything you know it and then research any areas that you are uncertain of. This helps you to understand which areas you should focus your study on. Getting these ideas down on a piece of paper can also help you to recall specific areas of information that may prove important for your exams.

Practice, practice, practice

The most effective way to prepare for an A level retakes exam is to complete past papers, as they will give you a good idea of the exam format. If you time yourself while taking the test, you will also identify areas you need to improve on.

Call on help from your friends and family

Your parents and other siblings do not need to be a nuisance when you are preparing for your exam, they can actually help you. Get them to test you, or alternatively, try explaining part of your exam to them to enhance your own understanding. This approach can also highlight where you need to practice more.
