Lower Sixth Business Studies Revision Programme

Easter Holidays 2002

 

It is vital that you make good use of your Easter holiday, failure to do so will significantly reduce your examination mark in the summer.  The revision programme I have suggested is realistic and I strongly advise you to follow it.

 

Revision isnít reading through your notes, donít fool yourself into believing it is.  You should revise with a pen in hand, making revision notes that can be used for learning at the time and closer to the exam.  The revision notes should be written using bullet points (or perhaps mind maps), making use of your notes and textbooks if necessary.  Learn the subject material by testing yourself, asking friends and family to test you, using the multiple choice questions on the internet or by attempting questions in the textbooks (I will mark any work you do).  Take care of your revision notes; keep A4 paper in a folder or cards in box/file. 

 

Revision notes made during the Easter holiday will be collected on Tuesday 16th April, no excuses.

 

Remember to use the Departmentís internet message board, I will check it everyday and answer any questions you have posted.  Donít be afraid to post your own answers, the more help we give each other, the better youíll do.
