    Hello all,

    I need some help clarifying a situation with some assignments I have.

    The task is;

    "Revise and summarise the notes after the lecture or seminar. Submit rough notes taken during.

    In your summaries, distinguish between main points and illustrative detail by means of layout, highlighting, bold type, underlining, colour, bullet points, spider and flow diagrams.
    You could use either pattern notes or mind maps or both.
    Each summary should be about 250 words."

    Forgive me for appearing stupid but this doesn't really make much sense to me. Am I suppose to re-write my notes in a mind-mapping format or do a mind-map of my notes...



    Turn your notes into a detailed mindmap

    It's been so long since I've been academia!

    So for example; if I did a lecture on enzymes, the notes I had taken would be summarise? The first 'base' of the mind map would be "Enzymes" and then branch off from there?

    I'm so sorry that I sound stupid but I just think being graded on notes is rather silly. I see the academic value but I take notes in the best way I can personally remember, not by someone else's rule.
