- Learn through teaching! Once you think you have mastered a topic, attempt to explain it to a family member as a revision method.
The best way in which to test your own understanding of a topic is to explain or teach it to another. After you have revised a certain topic, and believe you have a good understanding of it, try to explain it or teach it to a willing member of your family. Try to pretend the person has no knowledge of the subject, and present the topic to them – you could even work through a past paper question with them, explaining how you worked out the answer. Get them to ask you questions if they are unclear of your explanation. By thinking how to respond, you will become aware of the clarity of your explanatory skills and how you would write such an explanation on an exam paper.
