REVISION POSSIBILITIES to complement the school provided by school which has all and the current only set of notes!!

To create an offline wordpress blog where each page can be a different topic with revision information – particularly if you do not have access to microsoft word and your school or college has issued tablets for notes etc which is dependent on a techie!  The wordpress blog would be easy to reach via the web on a tablet. Notes would be out of the reach of your educational establishents control.
