Student focused, bite-size resources produced by the Academic Skills Centre with support from CTIL. These resources offer tips and advice to help with essay-writing, revision, numeracy and more.
We hope that you’ll find the Revision Bites useful. As the name suggests though, they are designed to provide quick introductions to the ideas and concepts rather than going into any great detail or depth. Much of the advice in Revision Bites draws on the research and other work collated by the ‘Learning Scientists’, and we recommend that you also visit their website and blog to further explore the ideas raised here. You can also find some further practical advice on exams and revision in our Exam Bites resource.
