Revision is a task which all students will need to do during their time at St Philip Howard. On this page you will find timetables for Period 6 sessions being currently offered in school alongside general revision advice. For specific revision advice in subject areas please see the relevant subject areas of the website and/or the relevant teachers.
Revision ideally happens for a short amount of time and reviewed very frequently. If no review of material is done the recall of this material falls dramatically:
If, however, material is reviewed, recall improves
With each additional review, recall improves
Revision is also more effective is planned breaks are taken during revision sessions, rather than trying to complete one marathon session.
At St Philip Howard , we encourage students to revise little and often, utilising techniques that suit them or taught to them on the revision day. For example:
Research into revision has shown that the most effective revision techniques are completing practise exams and marking them, as well as interleaving subjects (doing a different subject in each short session, rather than them all on the same subject).
