Welcome to the revision page - There is no one way to revise and I would suggest mixing things up by using clips (BBC Bitesize, Youtube, etc) as well as doing plenty of spider diagrams/cue cards and exam practice. (I would avoid just reading - Try to turn the evidence into something useful). Timing might be an issue for you, so put yourself under exam conditions. Also, use colours to make key points and practice spelling key names and places.

The main point, however, is that practice does make perfect and starting early will help relieve any pressure.

Below are lots of helpful documents so do use them - If you need anything else or want anything marked, do send it my or Mrs Webb's way.

Best of luck - Mr Ovens/Mrs Webb
