    For example how long would it take you to make 4 pages of notes? (A4-sized)

    or if you don't make notes, how many pages in a textbook could you read in 30mins?


    I've always wondered if I was a slow worker. If I'm going through a textbook, it'd probably take me about ~45mins to make 4 pages of notes

    that's basically the same as me, it took me three hours to make an A3 poster with everything on it. I made it neat and colourful but still, took forever and that's only two sides of A4!

    I usually take 20 - 30 min making 4 pages of rough notes during lecture and for my own self directed study. If I write them up neatly with colourful headings and higlight then it takes longer.

    And as for reading, it takes me a little longer. I can read pretty fast, but someitmes reading too fast makes no sense.

    Depends on the person really.

    I revise super slowly, especially when it comes to Biology. We have so many different Units to get through ( I do IB), yet it could take me up to five hours to get through one. That means that I would need roughly 50 hours of revision time, if I want to study everything really well.
