But I don’t know how to revise! Here are some strategies you could use…• Flashcards: On small cards, summarise a case study into one (or both) sides of the cards and refer to itregularly. Make sure that you include key facts and number as you condense the case study to fit the card.• Colour coding: colour code large pieces of text into sections. For example, it could be the social,economic and environmental impacts of the London Docklands Redevelopment• Memory tests: You could look at an important diagram (erg the cross section of a meander) for 20seconds, then cover it over and draw what you remember. Then give yourself another 20 seconds to seewhat you missed and add it in. Eventually, you will be able to draw the sketch without looking at a copy.• Key words test: You could ask someone to read out 10 definitions and you have to say what the key wordis. Then you could try it the other way around which is harder with someone giving you a key word to define.• Spider diagrams (mind maps): Write a key theme in the centre of an A3 piece of paper. Write the sub-themes around it with important ideas and case studies to back them up. Look at the example of migrationon the next page to help you. Stick your finished spider diagram somewhere visible where you will be ableto refer to it often (e.g. fridge door, bedroom ceiling ).• Practice exam questions: Look at the examples of past case study questions. Practice writing responsesto these questions using the flashcards or colour coded case studies you have created.• Summarising: Condense a section of text into a set number of bullet points.• Reading aloud: Read a case study summary aloud, then try to say aloud all the facts and figures youremember without the summary. You could also read your keyword lists aloud.• Repeated writing: Copy out pieces of information more than one time (five times would be appropriate).The repetition will help you to fix the facts in your memory.
