Elaborate interrogation

One of the best things that you can do (either on your own or with a friend) to support your revision is to ask why an idea or concept is true – and then answer that ‘why’ question. For example;

  • In science, increasing the temperature can increase the rate of a chemical reaction….why?
  • In RE, believing in life after death can influence how Muslims live their life… why?
  • In history, in 1929 the American stock exchange collapsed. This supported Hitler’s rise to power….why?

Rather than just trying to learn facts or ideas by reading them over and over try to get into the habit of asking yourself why these things are true.
