Planning for success in the mock exams and beyond

Good morning year 11
with less than 6 weeks to go before the real January exams and much less for the mocks I thought that we could use the career development planning afternoon window to look at injecting some motivation into you with regard to planning your revision. 
In comparison world class athlete's and rugby, football and cricket teams don't win on a global stage by chance.  They PLAN, PREPARE and PRACTISE.  Here are a few top tips and some bite size help and support to help you do the same: 

Mr Fanchi has created this presentation to explain the above. How great is he !

I also found this website 'Class of 2012' quite helpful for last years year 11's.  Click the link here and let me know what you think of it.
Revision plan
A typical revision plan looks like this.  You don't have to use this layout but the slide show below is a great example of what yours could look like and it would save you lots of time  re-inventing the wheel. To save you time I have attached one below for you to personalise to your exam commitments
The link here will take you to that template I mentioned earlier to create your own.  You might also wish to look further down at the top tips and advice also available here and free to you.

Thinking further ahead and onto the final exams in the summer these revision tips below might be quite helpful.
