Drink plenty of water to keep your brain working when you revise. Drinking water also helps to improve your concentration for revision.

You should aim to eat healthily to help with your revision. Revision food includes whole grains, nuts, berries, and even dark chocolate. Other revision food suggestions are oily fish, eggs, dark leafy greens, peanut butter, green tea, and fresh fruit.


10. How much sleep should you get when revising? 😴

Getting a good night sleep improves your ability to remember things. Make sure to at least rest for 8 hours the day before your exam. Plan your revision wisely and get enough sleep the day before.

When should I start revising for my test?

There’s no set date to start revising. Your teacher probably said that you should have started last week, if not three months ago (as shown in the below video).
