    i am currently studying english,geography and spanish and i honestly don't know what to do for best in terms of schoolwork. 2/3 of my subjects are linear exams, therefore we are having our exams in two years time. currently i have been making my notes as i go along,but sometimes when i make them they just don't seem to be going into my head.
    can anyone tell me what type of work they were doing at this stage in year 12?
    thanks.

    It doesnt have to go into your head in the same way and it may seem unreal because the real exam is some time away.

    Your focus needs to e on making good notes that you understand.
    Buy some revision books as well.
    Make a list of tasks to do this year.i.e collect exam papers.


    Making good notes and making sure theres nothing you dont understand will save you a lot of time in year 13. You can try some essays as well. You dont have to retain as once you are happy you understand it then you can move on.

    Its likely you will have mock exams on which your predicted grades will be based. they are important for offers.

    Its not enough just reading the notes over and over again, you actually have to practice recalling it, the more you access the information the more it is hard wired into your brain. Make your own flash cards or find questions to answer so you're actually applying the knowledge.
