Revision Structure (Diagnosis, Therapy & Testing.)

Diagnosis -Identify the topics you are not secure in by using FIB sheet feedback, and question level analysis from prelims and past paper feedback. (DO NOTspend time revising stuff you can do)
Therapy -Review these topics using FIB club as well as Mathswatchand Corbett Maths videos.
Testing –Attempt the practice questions provided on either Mathswatchor Corbett Maths, If you get them RIGHTmove on, if NOTthen go again.

Top topics for revision:

1. Make sure any revision guides are for the new GCSE 9-1 (2015 Onwards)
2. Creating Revision Cards works well for maths, make sure that you use facts and questions you have found difficult.
3. Make sure you understand the language of the exam. What does simplify, expand or factorise look like are you able to tell the difference between evaluate or estimate?
4. Practice doing questions under exam conditions NO MUSIC, NO TV, NO BREAKS and HIDE YOUR PHONE. Exam conditions should mean no distractions.
5. Practice using your calculator (and if possible make sure it’s a Casio), do you know how to reset your calculator?
6. If it helps revise with other people so that you can teach and test each other but remember that the exam is an independent event so spend plenty of time working on your own in preperation.
7. Use other WEBSITES such as BITESIZE and Youtubeif it helps.
