I'm thinking of doing it, but i was wondering if it's really worth it?

If you have done it, could you post a picture of your bedroom wall?

Thanks in advance!

Waste of time, you think you will look at it but you never do. I have a few french verb tables on my wall barely even glance at them even tough they are up in my face.

When I'm coming up to an important exam I go a little OTT with revison notes and cover the house in them! Previously, I've covered my bedroom walls, TV stand, wardrobe and desk. I've put them in the kitchen on the bread bin, fridge door, cereal box and at eye level in the fridge. I put them on the back of the bathroom door and on the bathroom mirror and I even laminated one and put it on the shower wall.

Then everytime I've walked past them or been stood near them I've made a point of reading or trying to remember some of the information. I think it helped as I got 85% and 76% on my exams but it was a pain to get them all down again! :P ahaa

Try it out op, just because it doesn't work for everyone doesn't mean it won't work for you! I know some people who do that and get amazing results, and some who do that and don't. I think I might try it out (the posters and posticks on the wall) in addition to my normal written notes!

So far, you're the only person who says it's helpful.

I do - mostly near exam time though and it's all sticky notes because I remember small snippets of information easier. I also colour code depending on subject but that's just me being paranoid :P

I usually do during the run up to the exam. At one point I had summaries of everything I had to know for a history exam and it did help me as it was at the side of my bed and I always read some of it when I was by it. At the moment I've got the Mrs Van Der Tramp verbs and a ton if irregular verbs up on my wall in bright colours near where I usually sit and once again it's helping me to learn them. Post-it notes are good too, you can write facts on them and leave them places where you will see them at some point like on your door. Give it a try, it might work for you

It does depend on how you learn - plus I know alot of the people in my cohort that covered the house too but then put little effort into actually reading the info they had displayed so it was a pointless exercise!

I put stuff on my wall but I never read it tbh- it's not helpful unless you write out the notes yourself before sticking them up.
What I did find effective though, was putting notes in places where I would go to procrastinate. So I stuck some on my laptop lid and made a rule that I couldn't open the lid to use the laptop until I'd read through them.
