Year 11: Revision ideas


Hi Year 11,

I hope you’ve been having a productive couple of weeks!  Here are some ideas to keep you going with English revision:

  • Make a PLAN!
  • Make revision cards
  • Tell everyone you see what you know
  • Mind map with lots of colour
  • Re-read the key texts
  • Surf the internet for non-fiction articles
  • Past papers and timed essays – VITAL!


  • TIME yourself, e.g. do 45 mins revision and then break for 15 mins
  • FACE whatever it is you are most unsure of.  It won’t be half as scary once you’ve started
