From September to May: A complete GCSE revision plan

Our current year 10 students will soon enter their final year of study before GCSEs. How can we help them to plan their revision from September? What core principles underpin effective revision? And how can the new resource (free for teachers) Pearson Revise Online help?


Our current year 10 students need to hit the ground running in September to be fully prepared for their GCSE exams next summer. And this means planning a personalised programme of revision – which requires organisation and thought.

While every revision programme should be bespoke, in this article we explore three core principles that underpin effective revision and which help students to keep on top of the content they have already studied in year 10 – as well as reinforce the new content they will be learning in year 11. We will also talk about how we can support our students’ revision planning when September comes.
