Revision techniques for Key stage 3′s end of year tests

01 June 2015

Last week, I spoke to the key stage 3 students about their forthcoming end of year tests. Whilst we all recognise that they are an important part of the school year and an indicator of academic progress, I reassured the students that they will not be ‘judged’ solely on these results. Obviously, as students progress through the year groups, the end of year test become dress rehearsals for the ‘main events’ of iGCSEs and A-Levels, but it is important to recognise that everything else before is a working progress.

My main message to the students was that maintaining a healthy diet, exercising and keeping active and going to bed at a sensible hour for a good night’s sleep, are all as important as the revision itself. It is not sensible to cram a year’s worth of work in a panicked short space of time. We certainly urge the students to, of course, plan their revision, but keep to normality to an extent. Here is a powerpoint and a couple of videos about effective revision techniques and how to manage stress:
