I personally find it crucial to get a place free of distractions! For my exams, I started revising in my bedroom at my desk, but my bed is very close and I was tempted to just sit on it and read a book. Not only that, but my cats wanted to jump on my desk! Needless to say, I didn't spend much time studying.
The next day, I brought all of my notes, textbooks and stationery and went to the main library of the local university. They have a large quiet room for quiet studying. I didn't even bring my phone or anything! It's too tempting to use!

I also made sure to plan my week. I dedicated a day for this subject and a day for that one… Naturally I can spend all day on a subject, but if that's too daunting for you, you can switch what you study and do for example two hours of Maths, a break and then two hours of English.

I used to study from 8 to 4 in the afternoon (with breaks and a meal) and the rest was free time. Obviously you need to relax a bit too!

Teaching other people like friends or family is essential when testing how well you know a subject. The better you know your subject, the better you'll be at teaching it, and vice versa.

Also, practicing exam technique like timing and how to structure your essays are just as important as learning the content of the syllabus.

As you may agree it’s hard to note all the important details, to always stay concentrated in class and remember everything what teacher explained. I’m in my final year of uni studying International Business and I honestly feel I wasted way too much time because I wasn't revising effectively. A friend of mine recommended helpful App (for IOS users) called “LectureScriber” to assist my revision. In this app I can record, make notes, draw graphs and take photos while recording voice. Recorded voice is synced with the notes and pictures you’ve taken, so while revising, this helped me to have all material in one place ready for coursework prep and revision, moreover, by clicking on the related notes LectureScriber App brings up the minute in the recording when you made these notes. I started using LectureScriber App in March and it really helped me to save time and improve my uni performance. Wanted to share this here maybe it will help you guys to revise smart too. Just write LectureScriber in App Store and it should be first app.
