Revision braeside

  1. 1. REVISION REMEMBER - REVISION CAN ONLY BE EFFECTIVE IF IT IS BASED ON A PREVIOUSLY ACQUIRED KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE SUBJECT MATERIAL.
  2. 2. “ The Start” GO THROUGH EACH SYLLABUS <ul><li>DIVIDE A PAGE INTO 3 COLUMNS </li></ul><ul><li>I KNOW THIS Column 1 </li></ul><ul><li>MAY HAVE TO LOOK AT IT AGAIN Col 2 </li></ul><ul><li>HELP! HOPE THIS DOES NOT CROP UP IN THE EXAM Col 3 </li></ul><ul><li>Idea of Revision is to: </li></ul><ul><li>MOVE TOPICS FROM 2 & 3 TO Col 1…I KNOW </li></ul>
  3. 3. Reproduction topics <ul><li>Male Reproductive Organs structure & Function </li></ul><ul><li>Female Rep Structure and Function </li></ul><ul><li>Ovulation </li></ul><ul><li>Menstrual cycle </li></ul><ul><li>Fertilisation </li></ul><ul><li>Inheritance </li></ul><ul><li>Chromosome </li></ul><ul><li>Mitosis </li></ul><ul><li>Homozygous </li></ul><ul><li>Heterozygous </li></ul><ul><li>Dominant & recessive </li></ul><ul><li>Variation continuous </li></ul><ul><li>Mutation Down”s syndrome </li></ul><ul><li>Radiation effects </li></ul><ul><li>Artificial Selection </li></ul><ul><li>Gene, Allele, haploid </li></ul><ul><li>Monohybrid crosses </li></ul><ul><li>Blood groups </li></ul><ul><li>Discontinuous variation </li></ul><ul><li>Natural selection </li></ul><ul><li>Diploid </li></ul><ul><li>Meiosis </li></ul><ul><li>Genetic Engineering – Insulin & Bacteria </li></ul>
  4. 4. 3 Columns Diploid Meiosis Genetic Engineering – Insulin & Bacteria Gene, Allele, haploid Monohybrid crosses Blood groups Discontinuous variation Natural selection Male Reproductive Organs structure & Function Female Rep Structure and Function Ovulation Menstrual cycle Ferstilisation Reproduction - everything Inheritance Chromosome Mitosis Homozygous Heterozygous Dominant & recessive Variation continuous Mutation Down’s syndrome Radiation effects Artificial Selection HELP!!!!!!! Not sure Stuff I know
  5. 5. Why is this important? <ul><li>Shows you what you do know….confidence </li></ul><ul><li>Shows you which topics need brushing up, notes, back to text book etc </li></ul><ul><li>Shows which topics you may need further teaching </li></ul><ul><li>Focuses YOUR revision </li></ul><ul><li>No point going over stuff you already know. Those in Column 2 and 3 will turn up in the exam. LEARN THEM. </li></ul>
  6. 6. REVISION PLAN <ul><li>How many days have you available? </li></ul><ul><li>Not wise to plan to revise for more than 30-40 mins at a time without a short break </li></ul><ul><li>build in some time in which you put revision aside all together </li></ul><ul><li>Allocate more days to the subjects in which you are less confident. </li></ul><ul><li>You should be doing about 4-5 hours a day initially </li></ul><ul><li>Recording your notes on to a tape may be helpful </li></ul><ul><li>Relaxation is as important as work and some form of physical exercise is beneficial. </li></ul><ul><li>During your revision read your notes out loud , you are then using all your senses, sight, sound, hearing ( taping is then easy ) and writing. </li></ul><ul><li>Never believe how much your friends say they are doing . </li></ul>
  7. 7. How much on each subject? <ul><li>Revision Planner </li></ul><ul><li>In rank order these are my subjects ranging from those I know and work best in and those I work worst in. </li></ul><ul><li>1. </li></ul><ul><li>2. </li></ul><ul><li>3. </li></ul><ul><li>4. </li></ul><ul><li>5. </li></ul><ul><li>6. </li></ul><ul><li>7. </li></ul><ul><li>8. </li></ul><ul><li>9. </li></ul><ul><li>10. </li></ul><ul><li>11 . </li></ul>
  8. 8. How to work it out <ul><li>Lets say you counted 60 days between now and the exam </li></ul><ul><li>You are doing 10 subjects = 6 days per subject </li></ul><ul><li>But, Physics was bottom of your list so this requires more days than English, top of your list. Work out proportionally…Physics 10 days; Geog 8 days; Hist 8 days; French 6 days etc until all your 60 days have been allocated </li></ul><ul><li>Each “day” is in reality 4-5 hours of revision only but broken into 2 x 2 hour slots </li></ul><ul><li>Each of your 2 hour (120 minutes) slots is further broken down to a maximum of 30 minutes so, 4 x 30 minutes with a 5-10 minute break in between </li></ul><ul><li>So, if you had said 10 days for Physics that equals = 40 hours which equals 80 revision slots on your planner </li></ul>
  9. 9. 12 subject topic 11 subject topic 10 subject topic 9 subject topic 8 subject topic 7 subject topic 6 subject topic 5 subject topic 4 subject topic 3 subject topic 2 subject topic 1 subject topic 6.30 – 8.30 2.00 – 4.00 11.30-1.30 9.00-11.00 Day
  10. 10. Which Subjects? <ul><li>Revise DISSIMILAR subjects back-to-back . You use different parts of the brain. Mix up the HUMANITIES and (SOCIAL) SCIENCES, the more factually based topics/subjects with the more conceptual. </li></ul><ul><li>So one 30 min slot Physics, the next Literature, the third Chem, the 4 th French </li></ul>
  11. 11. SHORT TERM MEMORY <ul><li>GFC </li></ul><ul><li>FLR </li></ul><ul><li>BDS </li></ul><ul><li>PIH </li></ul><ul><li>YZX </li></ul><ul><li>HVP </li></ul><ul><li>GLJ </li></ul>
  12. 12. MUSIC <ul><li>JPC </li></ul><ul><li>HRC </li></ul><ul><li>BPR </li></ul><ul><li>JAV </li></ul><ul><li>MSE </li></ul><ul><li>QOT </li></ul><ul><li>MHG </li></ul>
  13. 13. THE BRAIN <ul><li>ABC </li></ul><ul><li>DAD </li></ul><ul><li>TOP </li></ul><ul><li>ART </li></ul><ul><li>SIT </li></ul><ul><li>DOG </li></ul><ul><li>SEA </li></ul>
  14. 14. MIND MAPS – SPIDER DIAGRAMS <ul><li>create a set of notes which you can review quickly many times </li></ul><ul><li>Helps retain a vivid mental image </li></ul><ul><li>basic definitions, formulae, laws, or key words or phrases which spark off a whole collection of other sentences etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Specific to you </li></ul>

  17. 17. Photosynthesis - construct a spider <ul><li>Leaf structure + Function of parts </li></ul><ul><li>Factors affecting – CO2, light, chlorophyll, water, temp </li></ul><ul><li>Stoma & Guard Cells </li></ul><ul><li>Vascular bundles Xylem & Phloem – function of </li></ul><ul><li>Transpiration </li></ul><ul><li>Translocation </li></ul><ul><li>Factors affecting transpiration </li></ul><ul><li>Word Equation </li></ul><ul><li>Chemical equation </li></ul><ul><li>Products of </li></ul><ul><li>Respiration </li></ul><ul><li>Diffusion </li></ul><ul><li>Osmosis </li></ul><ul><li>Testing a leaf for </li></ul><ul><li>Importance of </li></ul><ul><li>Plants mineral requirements </li></ul><ul><li>Active transport </li></ul>
  18. 18. Revising your diagrams <ul><li>look at the diagram again, turn it over and try to write down as much as you can from memory. Go back and check what you have written and compare any differences with the original diagram. </li></ul><ul><li>Repeat until you can reproduce it accurately. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep written notes brief and comprehensiveness </li></ul><ul><li>confine all of the revision notes on one topic to one page or less of A4 paper. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Image maps <ul><li>Using different colours for different topics ; or writing the notes so that they create a distinctive pattern on the page is one way of creating a vivid mental image of your notes. </li></ul><ul><li>this will help you to recall information by focusing on the image of the way it was written down. </li></ul><ul><li>read through your revision diagrams quickly just before you go to bed each night. Your subconscious mind will work on them overnight. </li></ul>
  20. 20. When to do Past papers? <ul><li>Some students make the mistake of looking at questions before they have mastered the content. This can be depressing </li></ul><ul><li>Select difficult questions to practice, they will crop up in the exam </li></ul>
  21. 21. Self testing is the third phase of revision <ul><li>Pick a question from an old exam – and this is where having made a considered choice about which topics to revise is essential – and write an answer to it under &quot;exam conditions&quot; – ie. taking the length of time you would be given to do the question in the exam. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Past Exam Papers <ul><li>Then go back over your revision notes/diagrams on that topic and see what you left out </li></ul><ul><li>After half an hour or more break, pick another question on the same topic and write an answer to it. Go through the same review process again. Repeat the whole process once or twice more. </li></ul>
  23. 23. Advantages <ul><li>The advantages of doing this will soon become apparent. </li></ul><ul><li>You will identify weaknesses in your knowledge and or understanding. </li></ul><ul><li>You will see how some components of an answer to a question on a particular topic will re-appear over and over again no matter how the question is worded; and you will have written those bits down often enough that you will not have to spend time in the exam trying to work out how to phrase that part of your answer </li></ul>
  24. 24. Last minute revision? <ul><li>You must not exhaust yourself so much that you do not do justice to yourself in the examination. If you must do some revision the day before, and it might take your mind off the examination, spend your time recalling the important facts and improving your confidence. At this stage do not try to find things you cannot do. </li></ul>
  25. 25. THE EXAM ITSELF <ul><li>Make sure you have all of the materials you need for the exam </li></ul><ul><li>Turn up on time </li></ul><ul><li>READ THE EXAMINATION INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY AND COMPLETELY . This may be the most important thing you do. Note how many questions you have to answer and whether there are any limitations on your choice. </li></ul><ul><li>read through the complete exam before you start to answer any questions </li></ul>
  26. 26. Exam Questions <ul><li>Consider carefully what you have been told about the format of the examination </li></ul><ul><li>Work out how long you are likely to have to write an answer to any one question </li></ul><ul><li>The longer the time you can write on any one question, the more detailed your revision on that topic needs to be </li></ul>
  27. 27. Work it out <ul><li>Exam consists of section A and Section B. Total time 1.5 hours. </li></ul><ul><li>Section A is 15 short answer questions worth 2 marks each </li></ul><ul><li>Section B has three longer questions worth 20 marks each </li></ul><ul><li>How would you divide your time? </li></ul>
  28. 28. Answer <ul><li>Take 5 minutes off 90 minutes for reading through the exam. You now have 85 minutes </li></ul><ul><li>Section A has a total of 30 marks whereas section B has a total of 60. </li></ul><ul><li>Section A allocate 20 minutes in total. You now have 65 minutes left </li></ul><ul><li>Section B take 5 minutes to read and decide which question to start answering. You now have 60 minutes. </li></ul><ul><li>Allocate 15-17 minutes to each question. After this time stop and move on to the next question. </li></ul><ul><li>You will then have a total of 15-9 minutes left at the end to re-read and add answers </li></ul>
  29. 29. Stop when time is up <ul><li>Do not on any account over-run your time allocation for each question . It is much better to leave a question unfinished and to start on the next one. </li></ul><ul><li>The first few marks on a question are always easier to pick up than the last few . In other words, it is easier to get 10 marks at the start of the next question than to increase your marks from 12 to 17 on the previous question. </li></ul>
  30. 30. THE EXAM ITSELF <ul><li>Write the answer to the question you feel most confident about first. Getting started and into the swing of writing will steady your nerves. As the answer reels out it will boost your confidence in tackling other questions. </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure you tackle the number of questions you are instructed to. Even a poor answer is likely to net a few points; and that may make all the difference to your result. </li></ul><ul><li>If, despite this advice, you run out of time you will just have to give an answer in note/bullet form and hope for the best </li></ul><ul><li>DON'T PANIC ! Although everyone around you appears to be writing furiously, a much better approach is to keep calm and plan carefully before writing a word of your answer. </li></ul>
  31. 31. THE QUESTION ITSELF <ul><li>Make a sketch plan of your answer to a question before you start writing . If you have done a number of test problems in revision you should need do no more than sketch a few phrases and words </li></ul><ul><li>ANSWER THE QUESTION WHICH IS ASKED. Many students fail because they write perfectly good answers but do not answer the question the examiner has posed. </li></ul><ul><li>Leave plenty of space between paragraphs and at the margins of the page so that if, as you review your answer, you find that you want to add something to it, you have space to do so in a way the examiner will be able to understand. </li></ul>
  32. 32. THE EXAM ITSELF <ul><li>Take a thick black pen into the exam. If you need to delete a word or phrase or even several sentences which you have written down cross through it with the thick black pen. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t bother with tippexing the material out. </li></ul><ul><li>If the name of something, a topic eludes you, try and bring up an image of the page of revision notes you made on this topic. Can you see the name on the page? </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t spend too long trying to remember. Leave a blank and go on. When it comes to you, go back and write it in. </li></ul><ul><li>ABOVE ALL – DO NOT PANIC. YOU HAVE PLENTY OF TIME. YOU ARE WELL PREPARED. THE EXAMINER IS NOT TRYING TO TRICK YOU. THERE IS NO REASON IN THE WORLD WHY YOU SHOULD NOT DO WELL ON THE EXAM. </li></ul>
  33. 33. Difficult Questions? E.g. Discus how psychometric testing and physiological measurements could be used to explain abnormal and anti social behaviour
  34. 34. ASK QUESTIONS OF THE QUESTION!!!!! <ul><li>1. what are psychometric tests </li></ul><ul><li>2. give examples of psychometric tests </li></ul><ul><li>3. how can they be used to explain behaviour </li></ul><ul><li>4. what are physiological measurements </li></ul><ul><li>5. give examples of physiological measurements </li></ul><ul><li>6. how do they help explain behaviour. </li></ul><ul><li>7 Define abnormal and normal behaviour </li></ul><ul><li>8. What is anti social behaviou? </li></ul><ul><li>9.Strengths and weakness of using the above measures to explain behaviour. </li></ul><ul><li>Doing this will give you a structured answer. Rather than answering the WHOLE question, you will be answering sub questions which once completed will mean you have answered the WHOLE. </li></ul>
  35. 35. Have another go <ul><li>Businesses are affected more by cash flow rather than assets in determining their budgets and short term projected expenditure </li></ul>
  36. 36. Revision Summary <ul><li>Work out how many sessions (30 minutes) do you have available? </li></ul><ul><li>Work it out- per subject proportionally allocate. PLAN IT </li></ul><ul><li>Each day has 2 slots of 2 hours. You should be doing about 4 hours a day . In some ways it does not matter if this is in the morning or evening, although research suggests that you are more receptive in the morning than you are in the afternoon or evening. </li></ul><ul><li>Recording your notes on to a tape may be helpful. You might be able to listen to these when travelling in a car, on a train or just lying down relaxing. The fact that you have organised your notes on to a tape may in itself help you with your revision. </li></ul><ul><li>Practice questions only when you have learned the material </li></ul><ul><li>Be selective which questions to answer </li></ul>
  37. 37. Revision Summary <ul><li>During your revision read your notes out loud , you are then using all your senses, sight, sound, hearing( taping is then easy ) and writing. </li></ul><ul><li>Having music on does not work! How can it?. </li></ul><ul><li>Never believe how much your friends say they are doing . </li></ul><ul><li>Pin your plan up where you can see it and stick to it. </li></ul>
  38. 38. Final <ul><li>When you enter the exam hall a little bit of anxiety is required to get you to perform at your best. </li></ul><ul><li>If you are anxious because you are under prepared then PANIC. </li></ul><ul><li>You have no excuses…you have been advised, guided, taught and now, it is up to you. </li></ul><ul><li>Some people will deserve what they get, others will get what they deserve. Which one do you want to be? </li></ul>
