Self-Study through uses of books? watch

    How does one construct solid self-study plan? I plan to self-study for an IT qualification I can literally book the exams when I please, I have the exam objectives and solid revision material but how the hell do I organize this so I retain all the information and progress as though I would If I were studying at college? I have never really though about the effort and teacher must put into a lesson plan in order to work the students up to the final stage of the course till now.

    I'm doing self-learning A levels in Biology and RS... It is hard, and you do need to be very motivated (especially if doing other things at the same time, e.g. work.)

    I make study time tables, read through material, then write down what I remember, then go back to see what I've missed, and add to my notes. I then use these for revision. Where possible, discuss what you're learning with friends, family or colleagues. If someone will test you, that's really helpful, and do practice tests to see if/ where you're going wrong.

    Pretty similar to regular revision! Good luck!!
Do you like carrot cake?
