GCSEPod and Spaced Practice

Spaced practice is a highly effective learning technique that focuses on spreading out revision sessions over time, rather than cramming just before an exam.

Every time you re-study a topic, you make the information much easier to find and recall.

Why not try leaving a topic for a day or two, before returning back to it for review. Then repeat this process 4 or 5 days  later. Keep reviewing the information, but at increasingly larger intervals of time, enhancing learning and leading to better long-term retention.

Remember, don’t make the break between topics so long that you are likely to forgot the information entirely.

Spaced practice works well with other metacognitive learning techniques which include retrieval practice, interleaving and dual coding.
