We built Revision Tools to help you find the gaps in your knowledge and make your revision more efficient, targeted, and effective. Based on the principles of SMART targets (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound) and the prior experience of many A Level students, these are the tools we’d recommend to unlock a higher grade!

Making sure your revision notes are complete and you have revised everything is a must-have. We created these checklists to help you identify weaknesses in your studies and make more effective use of revision time.

Test Trackers

 Tracking your in-class test results can help make your revision more efficient by focusing on topics you find more difficult. Our Test Trackers also include a list of common mistakes and how to fix them. We recommend having a copy of this Test Tracker in your folder with your notes and class tests, and particularly in with your revision materials.

Study Politics Test Tracker

Making Synoptic Links

A lot of the Politics course requires the use of synoptic links. This means that various parts of the course link together in content and exam technique. Identifying where you can use a synoptic link in essays and how to use a range of political information will help increase your exam marks.

We’ve also written a blog article about synoptic links, which we’d recommend you read to fully understand synoptic links.

Exam Topic Tracker

We’ve written the Exam Topic Tracker so you can see which topics have previously come up in exams, and focus your revision on topics that haven’t been seen before.

Please note that these should not be taken as advice for what topics will/may come up on future exams. Study Politics cannot predict the topics of future exams.
