    same questions.

You are not alone..
8
Motivation Revision
By the time you reach this stage of the fifths
you should be able to self monitor.
9
The Great Enemy..
Procrastination.
To put off until a later occasion. To be slow
to act.
10
The Allies of Proctrastination.
  • CD player.
  • TV in room.
  • Computer/WWW.
  • Mobile phone.
  • Practically anything other than your work!!!

All the things in the house that could distract
you and keep you from doing the revision that you
are there for.

12
Dealing With Procrastination Timetable your
fixed hours and your recreation time. Make the
recreation compulsory, NOT the revision work.
13
Dealing With Procrastination Focus on starting to
work, not on how many hours each day. Only
concentrate on a piece of work for 30 minutes to
start with. Then record this achievement on your
schedule and give yourself a reward.
14
Dealing With Procrastination Start as many 30
minutes periods as you can. The aim is get into
the habit of frequently starting to
revise. Only after some success with this
approach should you gradually extend the study
periods.
15
Dealing With Procrastination Negativity
Create a timetable.
Work out how much time you have before your exams.
Establish how much of that time you can
realistically work in.
Work towards the timetable.
16
Exam preparation.
  • Prior to Easter Holidays
  • Easter holidays
  • Upon return to school
  • Weekends
  • School days
  • School day evenings
  • Examination leave

17
Between now and Easter.
You have 3 weekends and 14 school nights.
How would you feel if you did no work other than
your usual mediocre attempts at your prep?
How would you feel if you had done one extra 3
hour block each weekend and 2 hours each night
after school?
18
That would be 37 hours of exam preparation done
before Easter!

Easter Holidays.
  • You need a break - if you are staying at home
    then take the first week off!
  • Work the other two weeks!
  • Work in blocks of time each day.
  • Divide the day up into three three hour blocks
  • Work any two of these blocks.

23
Easter Holidays.
  • At this stage you should be revising all of your
    subjects
  • After each half hour block take a short break.

Exam Stress!!!!!
  • Your anxiety might only be coming from a couple
    of subject areas. Identify the problem and try
    to solve it.
  • Talk about worries you have with a friend, parent
    or teacher. They might be able to see a solution
    that you cannot.

43
Exam Stress!!!!!
  • Consider breathing and relaxation exercises
    before and after revision sessions and after
    exams.
  • Relax by forgetting about work play sport, read
    or visit friends. Physical exercise is an
    excellent way of refreshing your mind and body.

44
Exam Stress!!!!!
  • Keep to your normal pattern of sleep.
  • Keep to a balanced, healthy diet.
  • Avoid drinking coffee which can lead to stress
    and stomach cramps.

46
Exam skills Read the exam paper
carefully. Note how many questions you are
required to answer. Analyse carefully the
precise wording of questions. Tick the questions
you intend to answer. Make a rough
timetable. Answer questions in the order
easiest, favourite, most difficult.
So much of this comes down to knowing what to
expect.
47
Completing Past Paper questions is crucial!
48
Time Management in Exams.
We are going to look at the marks of 2 students
in the same exam. The exam paper required 4
questions to be answered in 2 hours and 30
minutes and each question was allocated 25 marks
- a total of 100 marks.
49
Time Management in Exams.
2 hours and 30 minutes 150 minutes. 10 minutes
to read the question paper leaves 140 minutes.
140/4 questions 35 minutes for each question.
50
Time Management in Exams.
The Scores on the Doors.
Student A Q1 18 Q2 16 Q3 10 Q4 0 Total 44
Student B Q1 13 Q2 13 Q3 14 Q4 12 Total 52
51
Questions.
  • Which student knows more about the subject?
  • Why did student A have such wide variation in his
    scores?
  • What do student Bs marks suggest about him?
  • What lessons can be learned?

52
After the exam Don't indulge in
postmortems. Review what went well in your
overall approach, before and during the
exam, including the way you handled
anxiety. Aim to improve upon that in the next
exam.
