Hi, sorry I dont know if this is in the right forum, but yeah, as the title says...
I am in my first year of a science degree and am struggling with finding an effective way of studying. It's not that I find the content hard, there's just so much of it to learn! I really can't keep up. The one week in my life that i was caught up with lectures, it was because I was staying in the library for hours on end making my lecture notes. I am beginning to think that note making is ineffective for Uni, and was wondering how others study for degrees that are so lecture heavy?
Also, for any Medics out there (which I know there is an abundance of on TSR ) how the hell do you study for OSPEs along side written exams?!?!?!?
Help I dont know how to study for Uni! Watch

Making notes might not be the most effective way.
What I do is reread the material often: prepare for lectures, read it after the lectures... that helps me because when I actually need to study, I'm already familiar with the content.
Also, I try to watch some videos on YouTube about the content I'm currently studying...
The more you hear and read certain terms, the more they are likely to stay in your head.
I would suggest writing notes only for the stuff you find conceptually difficult.
