Past Paper Revision

Exam season can be a stressful time, and it’s understandable that some students may find it difficult to stay motivated and focused. If you’re struggling to keep up with your group revision sessions, we’ve got a simple and effective way to help you get last-minute help and check whether you’re on the right track for your exams:

What is Past Paper Revision?

Past Paper Revision is a method of preparing for exams by working through previous exam papers. This can be done individually or in groups. This method is a great way to familiarize yourself with the types of questions that are typically asked, the format of the exam, and the level of difficulty of the questions.


1. Look through the past papers that students are already working through, and choose which ones you want to work through

When you are revising using past papers, it is important to choose papers that are relevant to the exam that you are preparing for. This means choosing papers from the same subject, level, and exam board. You can find past papers on the websites of most exam boards.


2. Add your answers exactly as you do on the Assignment Comparison Tool

The Assignment Comparison Tool is a tool that allows you to compare your answers to those of other students and can be a helpful way to identify any areas where your knowledge is lacking. When adding your answers to the Assignment Comparison Tool, be sure to follow the same instructions that you would follow when submitting an exam paper. This means writing your answers in clear and concise language, using correct grammar and spelling.


3. Compare and identify areas where you may be lacking in knowledge

Once you have added your answers to the Assignment Comparison Tool, you will be able to see how other students have answered the same questions. This can be a helpful way to get feedback on your answers and to identify any areas where you need to improve.


4. Start discussions via the forum to get students talking about difficult questions

The forum in our study groups allows you to post questions and comments about specific questions on the exam paper. This is a great way to get help from other students and to learn from each other.
