Revision has changed!
These days there are so many new apps and websites to help you navigate your way through the madness of revision, and more and more are coming on the market all the time..
Here are a few we’ve discovered to get you started (we’ll add to this page over time – let us know if you find any other great apps or sites that work well for you, and we’ll share them):
Top 20 Revision Tips App
Collins Revision App
GCSE Revision App
Ultimate Revision App
Simple Mind (for mind mapping)
Evernote (keep all your notes in one place)
Maths Alarm Clock (if you struggle to get up – solve a maths problem to turn off the alarm!)
Timeline Maker (organise events in order – can be printed too)
CPD Revision Guides
Get Revising (pay site, but lots of user driven content)
Blue Caterpillar (obviously!)
If you struggle with online distractions, try this software:
Mac – Self Control http://selfcontrolapp.com
PC – Cold Turkey http://getcoldturkey.com
The software blocks chosen websites for a certain period of time.
