how to stay productive when studying and not get lazy watch

    • Thread Starter

    does anybody have any thoughts about staying productive near exam season and not getting lazy and taking ALL DAY BREAKS?
    Does anybody have any techniques for studying that actually help you to retain the information and not just end up with a load of pretty notes?
    Thanks in advance

    Try to enjoy what you are doing and see the long term benefits.

    In terms of techniques, I like to write things without caring about wheather it is pretty or not. For me personally this works, it might not got you tho.
    In terms of staying productive, I find that being aware of what I achieve in a certain space of time allows me to be aware of my productivity and adjust accordingly. Perhaps making studying into a habit will help. By doing this you won't be able to not revise because it is a habit to do so.
    Hope that helps, I am only in year 10 so this might all change still. x
Do you think parents should charge rent?
