What are Revision Lists?
In Practice Question Bank, when you attempt a question wrongly in Unattempted List, the question is automatically added to your personal Revision List. This is to identify in specific terms the concepts and the application skills in which you lack expertise.
Why are Revision Lists important?
The questions in revision lists are crucial for your success in actual exam. You need to practice these questions thoroughly so that you are not left thinking in the actual exam. Even if you have taken a doubt clearance on that question, you need to make sure that you have the skills to attempt it right every time. This can be achieved with repeated practice only.
Why there are three levels of Revision Lists?
Simply attempting a question correctly once only does not ensure that you have gained perfection in solving this or similar questions or questions involving similar concepts.
When does a question move from a Revision List to next level?
When you correctly attempt a question in a Revision List, the question moves to the next level and if you attempt the question wrongly, the question stays in the same revision list and a fresh cooling period of 48 hours starts before you can re-attempt this question.
- In Revision List 1, you attempt a question correctly, it moves to Revision List 2. You can attempt this question in Revision List 2 after a cooling period of 48 hours.
- In Revision List 2, if you attempt a question correctly, it moves to Revision List 3. You can attempt this question in Revision List 3 after a cooling period of 48 hours.
- In Revision List 3, if you attempt a question correctly, it moves to Correct List. If you would like to re-attempt this question later, you can bookmark this question.
When does the question move from Revision List to Correct List?
When can you attempt a question in a Revision List?
In Revision Lists, there’s a cooling period every time you attempt a question in that list. For example, if you attempted a question wrongly in Unattempted List today at 8.00 PM and the cooling period is 48 hours, you can re-attempt this question in Revision List 1, only after the cooling period of 48 hours is over, i.e. two days later after 8.00 PM.
In a Revision List, if you attempt this question wrongly, not only the question stays in that Revision List but a fresh cooling period starts and you can attempt it in that Revision List only after the cooling period.
Why is there a cooling period every time?
Without a cooling period, the students may be tempted to carry it through all the revision lists in the very same session. Since, memory fades with time, if one has understood and retained the concepts and the steps involved, s/he would be able to attempt it correctly next time even after two days or a week.
What’s the Duration of Cooling Period?
Generally, you would find a cooling period of 48 hours.
However, if your exams are near, you would not like to wait for 48 hours every time, a question goes wrong. So, the cooling period gets reduced as your exam date approaches.
- If your exam date is just 90 days away, the cooling period would be 24 hours.
- If the exam date is just 30 days away, the cooling period would be 12 hours.
- If the exam date is just 15 days away or less, the cooling period would be 6 hours.
Why can you not attempt a question in Revision List, even if it has questions?
There may be times, when you have questions in a revision list but you are not able to attempt these questions. This would happen because the cooling period for any question in that list has not yet expired.
