Study Skills 

"I know I need to revise, but I don't know where to start.


"No matter how many times I read this page, I don't seem to be able to remember it."

"I always get stressed out about exams."

 Have you ever felt like this?

Don't worry, lots of people face these sorts of problems when they are trying to study and there's lots of help and advice available to help you overcome these difficulties. On this page you'll find links to resources to help you learn how to learn.

Remember that if you are struggling with a particular subject you should talk to you class teacher about it and explain what you are finding difficult. It's important to remember that if you are feeling really stressed out about any aspect of school work then it's time to talk to someone about it and get some help.

Study Skills

A good place to start is the Revision and Skills page on the BBC website. It has sections on Revision, Exams, Skills (e.g. tips on doing Research and on giving Presentations), and Stress & Health.


Exam Preparation

The BBC Bitesize website had this Exam Survival Kit which includes a page on Revision Techniques.

When you are preparing for exams it is important to plan your study time. The BBC Bitesize website also has this Weekly Revision Planner to help you organise your time.



Try the game Last Brain Thinking from the BBC Schools pages.
