Some of our students and staff have been giving us their top revision tips as exam season approaches.

We asked what advice they would give to others as they prepare for the upcoming 2022-23 exams.

Preparation tips included revising little and often, making a plan and not revising for more than an hour at a time, giving yourself regular breaks.

Andrew Patterson, programme leader for BA (Hons) Football Business and Marketing, said: “Don't go longer than an hour and get rid of every single distraction. Nothing should be anywhere near you that would distract you.”

Some things that students said included:

"Do not leave revision until the night before and revise small sections of the content each day.”

"Plan effectively and use your time wisely. Space your revision out regularly, giving yourself time to study content topic by topic. Revising little but regularly is more effective than cramming."

"Revise little and often, rather than trying to sit down for hours and hours cramming information in.”

"Practice the exam structure so you can confidently enter the exam hall focused with an organised plan. And of course, to believe in your own ability, all you can do is your best!"

“Take regular breaks and if you do a small amount of revision each day, it’s a lot better than trying to revise for six hours the day before an exam."

"Make a clear plan before you actually study, and set lots of mini goals to achieve each day."
