Exam season is just around the corner and that means only one thing … revision.
Let’s face it, nobody likes revising – it’s boring, it takes forever and it’s always sunny outside when you’re stuck indoors grappling with number theory or Renaissance literature.
But to revise successfully you don’t have to lock yourself away in the library. Your phone can be your best friend when it comes to revision, as long as you lay off social media and all those other enticing distractions.
These are our top picks for revision apps 2019.
Gojimo claims to be the most popular revision app in the UK, used by 1 in 3 GCSE and A level students. It covers a range of topics from GCSE up to undergraduate level, though there are fewer subjects available at higher levels. There are more than 65000 questions on all the major subjects and it’s a simple way to test your knowledge and practice for exams.
StudyBlue lets you create, study and share your own digital flashcards and also gives you access to the many thousands of flash cards and other materials other students have created. Just ask a question and choose the best answer from the database. There are 500 million study items available!
Goconqr makes it easy to create mind maps, flash cards, flow charts, quizzes, notes and slides. You can share with others and even join and collaborate with learning groups all over the world. The library gives you access to more than 4 million learning resources.
Quizlet offers a range of learning aids – from flashcards to spelling tests and simple (but addictive) games. Generally aimed at school students rather than university, it’s easy to use and you can either access existing study sets or create your own.
Trello doesn’t have a database of exam questions and answers like the other apps, but it will help you organise yourself so you know what you have to do and when. Designed as a project management tool, you set up a board for each subject or project and then add cards for each task you need to complete. So you could add a card for each topic that could come up in an exam with details of the areas you need to cover. Planning your revision properly really helps you to be productive; Trello is an easy way to get yourself organised.
Using a combination of these apps will help you revise effectively and power through those exams. Good luck!
