Using Websites to boost
revision
Website Based Revision –
Do’s
• Do use it as a way of breaking up
your revision into manageable
chunks
• Do make use of the various ways
information in presented e.g. audio
clips, videos, quizzes, animations etc
• Do make sure that the online content
is specific to your course
Website Based Revision –
Don’ts
• Don’t use it as your only way of
revision. Sometimes doing exam
questions is the only way of learning!
• Some websites have a lot of games.
These can be great but often don’t
cover subjects in detail.
• Jump between subjects – try to focus
on one at a time.
A really useful starting point

Miss Parker says…
BBC Bitesize’ is helpful
for English Literature
revision. Students need
to be selective with the
appropriate literature
texts that they have
been studying in class.
It is also helpful for the
poetry section (section C)
of their literature exam.
