Summer term assessments: revision advice & Exercise the key to a healthy mind during assessment season

With the end of year assessments for all year groups fast approaching, it is important that all learners develop good revision techniques early so that they go into the assessments confident and secure in their knowledge. For revision advice follow the link https://martinhigh.org/learners/revision/ which includes a revision timetable planner and advice from learners who sat assessments last year.

For any further information contact Mr Seaward by email at kseaward@martin.leics.sch.uk

 

Exercise the key to a healthy mind during assessment season.

 

With the summer assessments beginning this half term it is important to consider your overall well-being. Exercise is a fantastic way to relieve stress and help you focus. It doesn’t have to be super strenuous either. The school track is 400m, why not take on a the ‘Daily Mile’ challenge during the assessment season by walking four laps during your lunch break. Take a friend, have a chat and enjoy the outdoors as well as the positive physical and mental health benefits below:

1)      Exercise relieves stress

The bad news? Stress slows down the brain’s ability to process information, making it more difficult for us to concentrate and focus, which in turn can greatly impact your exam performance. The good news? There is a cure! Exercise cranks up the body’s production of serotonin and dopamine, the feel-good brain chemicals which helps create a happier and healthier mood. Even a quick 20 minute session can radically change your mental and physical state, especially if you have been sitting in the library all day.

2)      Exercise improves memory retention

Finding it harder and harder to remember those Shakespeare quotes? Or the almost impossible answer to that biology question? Fitting in regular exercise into your routine can quite literally “jog” your memory. Exercise releases endorphins, also known as nature’s mood elevator, which has been shown to improve memory and boost your brain-building hormones. So next time you’re stuck for revision, try getting outside and let your brain do its magic!

3)       Exercise increases focus and concentration

Regular exercise releases brain chemicals key for memory, concentration, and mental sharpness at the same time as lifting your mood, lowering stress and anxiety all of which contribute to brain health. Studies show that regular exercise helps you manage complex tasks, organise and razor sharpen your focus which is great for those long revision sessions or particularly complex exam questions.

4)       Exercise boosts your energy

Feeling slumped? The more you move, the more energized you will feel. Regular physical activity improves your muscle strength and brain power, giving you the energy you need to think clearer and come up with new ideas. A good 15 minute break from revision to move around, even just around your living room, makes your body produce more energy whilst also making you feel happier.
