This is what ideal exam revision looks like.
IDEAL EXAM REVISION = TILES ON YOUR WALL + PRACTICE AT DECODING THE EXAM
For the tiles on your wall:
- Number all the bullet points in the Study Guide/syllabus.
(There are 50 bullet points in VCE Further Maths)
- Make an A5 tile that represents the essence of that bullet point in a colourful graphic.
- Compile them in numerical order and stick them on your wall.
This improves your content knowledge (i.e. makes sure you’re familiar with the entire syllabus).
For the practice at decoding the exam:
- Do all the past exam papers you can find under exam conditions.
Limit yourself to one exam per day.
Look up and use the posters to help you answer the questions (if needed).
This improves your exam skills (i.e. makes sure you know how the examiners tend to phrase their questions, and gets you used to writing with a pen under timed conditions).
If you make posters based on the syllabus, then complete all the past exam papers before the exam, then you’ll maximise your potential and get a pleasant surprise on results day.
