5 Great Revision Apps To Help You Ace Your Exams
It’s that time of year again: Exam Season *cue Jaws music*. It’s safe to say it’s one of my least favourite times of year, but in order to succeed we have to crack on and revise.
As the Queen of procrastination, I have found that revision apps really help me revise the most efficiently. So I’ve compiled a list of 5 of my top revision Apps to share with you, in the hope that it might help you too! Don’t get me wrong, I still love to do spider diagrams, flash cards and posters, but these apps are great for on the go.
Numer one is perhaps the most appropriately named revision app ever… Revision App! This particular app holds over a million revision notes, flashcards and quizzes for subjects ranging from GCSE to AS/A Level syllabuses. It can be used on both Android and iOS. This app is brilliant as you can tailour it to your personal needs and study level. The revision cards can be subject specific with video, text and audio. These revision cards can be saved and sent to friends- which I think is pretty fantastic. If you’re all doing the same subjects- why not share them with your friends?
2) Remember the Milk
As I have already stated, I am the Queen of procrastination. If you find that you can procrastinate too, this app might really help you. One of the most difficult things about revision is making sure you actually do it. With this app you can add and complete revision notes and lists while you’re on the go, then you can sync them to your computer, ready for when you get home. This way, wherever you are, you don’t have an excuse not to do some revision. As someone who catches a fair amount of trains, I love this app. Getting your laptop out on a train can be sort of inconvenient (especially if you don’t have a table) so I often use my phone to revise when I’m on the move. This app allows you to prioritise your subjects to revise and set reminders too, which come in the form of a text or email… so their is no escaping your revision!
I am a very visual person so mind maps are something I always go back to. If you find mindmaps/spider diagrams help you then iMindMap might be worth looking into. This app simply digitises the classic revision method. As a perfectionist, I can get super frustrated when my writing is all wonky and wedged into small spaces. This app is great for making the mind map aesthetically pleasing and easy to read. You can even record audio notes on this app and have them sync with your cloud so that you can access you mindmaps from multiple devices.
4) Exam Countdown
Now this one might be controversial, but I find it really helps! We all know our exams are imminent- all we can do is prepare the best we can for them. This app simply notes down your exams in a neat, orderly fashion. These can be colour coded and are ordered in terms of which exam comes first. They then give you a countdown next to each one. This might overwhelm people, but I find it helps me prioritise my work and visualise what I need to do in a specific amount of time.
5) Drop Box
Drop Box is one of the best. I know a lot of people that back up their University work on Drop Box. You get 2GB of storage when you sign up, which you can use to store all of your documents, photos, videos etc. You can even upgrade and get more storage if you would like. There is nothing worse than losing your work. Been there, done that (had my laptop physically run over by a car- and I hadn’t backed it up! Ultimate blond moment!!). So if you’re anything like me… forgetful or have a tendency to say ‘I’ll do it later’- Drop Box might be a good shout!
So there you have it! 5 of my Favourite Apps for the dreaded Revision period. Knuckle down, work hard and try your best- then it’s Summer!
