Get organised! The most important advice I can give you for this year.
Monthly Calendar Here is a monthly calendar to help you plan your study and life during this year. Most people find their Higher year the hardest they’ll ever do. It will pass quicker than you imagine, so don’t leave things until the last minute.
Weekly Planner Here is a weekly planner if you prefer this layout to your homework planner.
and if you are just starting out and want to know about how and why to learn check out Mr Burke’s site https://sciencewithmrb.wordpress.com/science-of-learning/
Here is a 10 week revision plan from Mr Kennedy- thanks
Adjust to your own order.

Revision Techniques Ideas about revision techniques
What type of Learner are you? I would expect by this stage you have a fair idea, but just in case it has passed you by go through some of the documents below. You might need a friend to work through this with you.
Below are a few pointers on how to answer exam questions.
Here is a document for you to mark to see what you would consider the marking scheme for each diagram. NB This is the marking scheme for the unrevised Higher, so although the ideas are the same the mark scheme will be slightly different.

Some hints to CfE type questions
Hope the revision goes well, don’t forget to take some regular breaks and get some exercise, including fresh air and a walk or a run. You better remind me too. I only make about 5k steps a day! All the best, it was lovely sharing this journey with you.
