So I'm aiming to get a high 2.1 (although I do sometimes struggle with motivation and I'm definitely aiming high) but I'm just wondering what others are hoping to achieve and how they are studying to get it?

(I know each degree's different and I'm not comparing myself to others or looking at others to know how much work I should be doing, I just simply like hearing how people study and how they personally fit it into their daily uni life)

Final year accountancy and finance student aiming for a first. Third & fourth year count towards my classification.

Due to the way my university classifies their degrees and my grades being so high in third year, I have already secured a first without having sat of my final year exams. My quick tips for how to study in order to get good grades:

1. Do the reading. Skim for the key points before the lecture if you have time, but definitely make time for it after the lecture.
2. Take notes in the lecture. If something confuses you, mark that down in your notes too, it'll jog your memory when you review your notes and remind you to spend some extra time in that area.
3. Review your lecture notes and rewrite them, combining them with the reading you've done. This will create a good set of notes for the topic, which allows you to significantly cut down on exam revision time. Write them in such a way that explains everything as if the reader had little/no prior knowledge. It makes it easier to come back to the topic at the end of the semester.
4. Think outside the box for assignments. Be analytical and and incorporate examples. Examples are without a doubt one of the best ways to highlight your understanding, analytical ability and evidence of wider reading.
5. Start revising early. Review the good set of notes you made for each topic. Summarise them into a short study guide for the topic, or a cheat sheet if you can. Then following doing this for each topic, review each topic again, summarising further onto flash cards. Again, try to find examples you can use in your exams.

Good luck!
