Parental Guidance on GCSE Revision

 Home help does make a difference

Parents can have a very active role in testing their children, helping them organise their revision and knowing what to do when they say ‘I’m tired, I can’t do any more’.

Top Tips

Encourage your child to:

• Create a revision planner by making a list of all the topics in all the subjects they need to revise, with a mix of subjects for each evening;
• Work in short bursts with rewards for maximum effectiveness;
• Revise ‘actively’ rather than sitting passively reading a book. Make lists and diagrams and cover the walls with Mind Maps;
• Use memory retrieval systems – mnemonics, memory pegging (associating items to memorise with, for example, items in their bedroom) or bizarre image association;
• Turn a bedroom into an effective study environment and shed TV and internet.

You can help if you:
• Work with your child at the planning stage. Reduce stress and anxiety by getting the revision planner right.
• Look with your child at the notes they have made after, say, 30 minutes. That way, they know they need to have something on paper.
• Make sure your child gets enough sleep. Staying up ‘revising’ until 1am means something is wrong.
