A. Planning

The most important in revising for exams is to have an overview of what you need to study.

And here you can find general revision tips for students
("Revision Tips" Cambridge Students. 2011. Web. 31 May 2011)

The revision plan should be realistic! Note down the work to do every day and follow it. Mark off the things you have studied. Try to follow your plan so that you don't end up wasting time by doing new timetables every day.
You cannot concentrate more than 8 hours a day, so be realistic in your planning. Be sure to have a 5 minutes break every half hour, and take a larger break during the day and go for a walk.
Realise that this is a time where you need to have a very regular rhythm, a healthy diet and also relaxation.
To make the most of your studying you can meet with fellow students for discussions in the afternoon in order to revise in another way. Try for example to discuss how to answer essay question, ask each other questions etc.

Organise a nice study environment with a comfortable chair and all the materials you need for revision around you. You should try to avoid distractions while you study so silence the mobile, let the TV rest and don't branch on the chat line. If you have difficulties concentrating at home you may want to go to the library.
