Top revision quote for students

“My top revision technique for all students is to verbalise their revision. If you can’t confidently explain a concept like photosynthesis or reversible reactions to a friend/parent/carer/teacher, then you don’t know it well enough. It takes less time to say something than to write it, so it’s a super effective & impactful revision tool to identify areas to focus on to maximise your use of time!”
