Study Space

  • Calm, quiet and at an appropriate temperature.
  • Well-lit, preferably from natural light.
  • Work in a space that you only use for work and nothing else.
  • At the end of each session, file away your notes and clutter so that your work-area is clear for the next session.

Staying Healthy 

  • Drink water and get fresh air.
  • Eat ‘brain food’ – avoid sugar and have lots of healthy snacks around to eat little and often.
  • Do frequent short exercises – stretches, neck and shoulder rolls, walking around etc. but not too close to bed time.
  • Do not work all night.
  • You need around 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep per night to feel fresh enough to concentrate.
  • Leave time for your brain to relax at the end of every day to encourage deeper sleep.
  • Do something relaxing between revising and bedtime.
  • Drink milk before bed (has a naturally calming effect.)
  • Set your alarm clock so you are not rushing around the next morning for school or the exam.
  • STOP and take a break if you start feeling frustrated, angry or overwhelmed.  Make a note of the problem to take to your next lesson and move on to something else.
  • Take a day off and do something completely different.
