This is not the time for simply reading over notes or copying out notes. Instead, become familiar with exam technique through using Past Papers. Your child should attempt past paper questions as timed exercises, without notes. Pupils should access marking schemes to correct their work and identify the specifics they need to focus on. Revision techniques Pupils should revise these specific topics by breaking whole units down into smaller, manageable sections for each study session; this is less daunting. Past paper questions can then be attempted again, following the same procedure. They will see an improvement in their performance and become familiar with the range of questions. Pupils should keep a record/ diary/ log of topics they are revising to track that they cover the whole syllabus. Otherwise there is a danger they may miss out on one or two topics. Revision techniques Once the above strategies have been employed, if there are questions that your child cannot answer or topics with which they are having difficulties, your child can write these down and ask their teachers to help them. Dont dwell on what they cant do this will be addressed in school. Focus on what they can do and what they will do next.

Revision techniques Your child will attempt most past paper questions 3 or 4 times before mastering it. Parents can monitor revision everyday by looking at the answers your child has written, they can do plenty in 3 hours! You will both see their improving performances; such success further motivates pupils. Revision techniques Help pupils to remain motivated by talking to them about what they are studying, and highlight that good performance in the exams has a very positive impact on their future. Wellbeing is important! Encourage exercise to release pent up adrenalin and energise their systems. Good sleep patterns are invaluable- make sure that they are in their beds at a reasonable time; there should be no phones, Facebook or games to the wee small hours. Eating well Remember, if your child is studying on the computer for more than 15 minutes, they are doing something else! Resources School Website/Departmental Websites SQA Website.
