When the exam season is fast approaching, there is only one thing that starts to occupy the minds of all the students — revision. While there might be some students who began their revision marathon well ahead of the academic year, there are those who delay the process so far until they are left with piles of work to revise and question why they had not started sooner. To avoid ever thinking or saying “I wish I had started sooner,” or cramming for everything at the last minute, proper planning on how to maximise revision time is important. Whether you are in Secondary 3 or in your final year of Junior College (JC), there is no doubt the amount of materials that you will have to revisit before a major examination might seem never-ending. But how do you ensure that the method of revision you are leveraging is truly effective and will direct you down the path to success? Fret not! Here at Physics Academy, we’ve curated a revision method that when followed diligently will allow you to master the art of exam preparation. Moreover, we’re also holding a March Holiday tuition programme during the school break so that students can better build a solid foundation in all the core concepts in their Physics syllabus.
Significance of Revision and Method of Revision
Defined as the act of revisiting material that was once learnt, revision can include everything from re-reading content or taking various forms of actions to improve one’s knowledge of a subject matter. A step that students must take to ease their burden before a major examination, revision must not be confused with last-minute cramming. While the latter is all about forcing down a lot of information at one go, revision is more focused on looking through various materials once studied in a paced manner for better understanding and digestibility. So, why is doing so important?
The Importance of Revising
There are several significant benefits of revising. One of them is that proper revision helps students recall all the necessary information about a topic they’ve studied. This ability to recall information when needed also translates to confidence when attempting questions related to the topic. Timely revision also helps reduce stress and anxiety levels that are frequently felt by many students. For example, JC students will have five major subjects to prepare for, and before they realise it, their Mid-Year Exams are knocking on their front door. This can be daunting for anyone, unless they’ve taken the time to revise prior.
Proper revising also ensures that students are well-prepared for the examinations and allows them to better gauge their standing in terms of their strengths and weaknesses in a particular topic or concept.
The Ideal Revision Process
But is simply making time to revise sufficient? Not necessarily. As a matter of fact, it is important to devise a personal method of revision to complement your learning process. In general, it is essential that students always start their revision early. This means that even if you are going with the flow of the March holidays, you’ll have to make time for revision because, in a blink of an eye, you’ll have to sit for your Mid Year Exams. Next, be sure to utilise a wide range of reliable resources to assist you throughout your revisions. Whether you’ve always found benefits of doing Physics past year exam papers or memorising theories better when you write them down on cue cards, do whatever you need to retain all the information for a long time. And finally, an ideal revision process should include a consultation session with a professional. Be it your school teacher or through your Physics tuition classes, take the time to clarify your doubts with the experts to boost your understanding to the next level.
The Physics Academy March Holiday Programme
Think you can plan your revision sessions according to the tips provided above so that you can ace your Mid Year Exams in JC or even your tests in Secondary 3 or 4? If you are not sure how to best revise for Physics, we at Physics Academy have just the answer for you — Physics Academy’s March Holiday programme.
Offering workshops for a wide variety of subjects covered in your syllabus, our March Holiday programme provides an opportunity to build a solid foundation on subjects that you are weak at. Designed to prepare students for their upcoming Mid-Year Exams, we craft personalised lesson plans for each student throughout the workshop.
