Revision Resources for KS3

How are you feeling? If you feel stressed about taking exams, you should talk to somebody about this. Ask your friends how they feel and see if you can help each other out, perhaps by revising together? There is a free advice leaflet available from the NSPCC and ChildLine, which you can download from this website: http://www.nspcc.org.uk. Copies are also available from the library. Of course, you can always talk to any teacher, learning mentor, or tutor about any problems or concerns you have.

Library Resources

Online Resources

The library has revision guides and study skills books specifically aimed at your needs. You can borrow all these materials and take them home —just make sure you return them so that other people can have them too. Let us know which of these resources you find particularly helpful. There is always a member of staff available to ask for help or to request other books that you may want to use. We can help you with your revision, test you on your vocab or find out information for you. You can come to the library during break– and lunchtime every day and use the space for quiet study and revision. Exam periods can be a stressful time and it’s important to respect each other and be considerate to others.

Your Notes The notes you took during lessons or while researching are your best revision tool. Use them frequently for maximum benefit.

All of these websites have been tested by staff and students and have found to be the best for revising KS3 subjects. Type the links into your browser or click on the pictures to go straight to the website.
