Question Level Analysis | This will highlight all of the areas and topics that you have done well and badly in a mock exam. Focus your revision on topics you got wrong from the beginning of the paper to maximise the marks you gain from easier questions. | |

Hegarty Maths | Clip numbers are listed against each question on Question Level Analysis sheet after mock exams.Log on and type the clip numbers of any topic you need to revise into the search bar. Watch the video and then do the quiz.Try topics a couple of times to consolidate understanding (make sure you get 100% on quizzes). | |

Past Papers / Mock Papers | Review mock papers to check mistakes. Look at mark schemes/ modelled answers to see how to correctly answer. Use revision guide / Hegarty Maths to do more questions to practice and consolidate.Use practice papers to look at more exam style questions – review in same way as mock exams. | |

Flash Cards | Write explanations / methods for common problems on one side of cardWrite topic name or question on otherTest yourself on a regular basis | |

Formulae / Key information Cards / posters | Use in same way Flash Cards but write name / topic / question type on one sideWrite clear formula / information on other to check recall of factsAll required formulas are in planners and other key information is in revision booklet | |

Revision Guide | Revision guides are an alternative source of explanations and practice questionsChoose topics from QLA in same way as choosing Hegarty maths topics | |
