    Hi, I am a first year medical student in scotland, and was wondering if I could get any advice on how to study for Medicine where there is so much content? I normally just write notes from what the lecturer is saying and rough notes from the lecture then rewrite them neatly and combing the information together although this has been strongly advised against.

    It would help to know where you're studying so that students from that uni can comment ad we can know what/when exams are!

    For lectures, I try to make notes during the lecture, then via the internet (or books), I go through the lecture again adding detail to anything I didn't understand/missed in the lecture. Then revise and memorise.

    I tried the writing everything down neatly method in 1st year and it took me a while to figure out it didn't work, for me at least. Plus I can now read scribble.

    I'm not at Aberdeen btw.
