Making revision for exams fun

We all know that revision can really help when it comes to doing well in exams. The problem is that lots of people find revision boring and also often struggle to actually take in what they are reading after a while.

Revision should be done in small chunks to avoid this happening but it’s not particularly very fun to just sit and read pages and pages out of your text book, so why not get a little more inventive and think take a look at a few examples below that will make it more enjoyable:

Charades – this may sound odd but it can actually work really well. Write down phrases out of your text book and act them out for a few friends like you would in a game of charades. Take it in turns to act out facts. This will often be quite fun and you may find that you remember it because of being able to have a laugh with your friends whilst doing it.

Watch a documentary or film – if there is a certain topic that you are struggling with then why not try and watch a film or documentary about it or even listen to an audio book, this can often bring the subject to life, making it more enjoyable and often easier to digest.
