The exam doctor is here...

..and here's his advice on how to revise effectively, from the School Gate blog:

Ten minutes is all that it takes with the ‘10-minute rule’ whenever you get stuck.

o Ditch those four-hour sessions you planned, where only 10 minutes actual work is done.

o Start with the 10 minutes you know you will do. Then have a 10-minute break and start again.

o Anyone can do that. So can you.

o When working work and when relaxing relax. The two don’t mix. Remember that.

o No texting friends, looking out of the window or playing with the cat. And your room can wait for another few years to be tidied.

o So now you have started, doubled the time you normally work in an evening and had a 10-minute break, all within the first half hour.

o Increase the working periods to 30 or 40 minutes and keep the breaks at 10 or less.

o Sorted? Well ‘ish’ at least. Don’t think about it, just do it – now!

o Congratulate yourself for having done it. You’ve made a start.

o Staring into space won’t help but the ‘10-minute rule’ will whenever you have difficulty in starting something you don’t want to do.

Have a watch of the below:
