Top tips

Tip 1: Remember your education is a partnership. Ask your teachers as they will know your strengths and weaknesses, and ask them how you can help yourself .

Tip 2: Look through practice SAT papers and talk through the answers, maybe with an adult at home. Try drawing or acting out answers of difficult concepts.

Tip 3: Don’t forget that the number of marks allocated to each question gives you an idea of how much time to spend on each one.

Tip 4: Getting stuck is not a problem. Move on and if you have time, come back to the hard ones at the end.

Tip 5: Believe in yourselves, “you can do it!”

Tip 6: Remember the tests are important, but that they are not the only way to be measured.

Tip 7: Approach a subject from lots of different angles. Software, games, activities, books, flash cards and practical applications all help make the revision time at home as fun and interactive as possible.

Tip 8: It is easier said than done, BUT do not put yourself under too much pressure. Have fun – you will find things easier to remember if you recall the good times you had learning.

Good Luck!
