    Hi,
    I am currently in my final year of uni and I still cant wrap my head around how often i should study each module. I have 4 modules this semester and im not sure how i should go about studying them. I have three questions:

    1) Should i:
    dedicate each day for each module or should i do two a day or three a day etc.

    2) Also as opposed to just copying lecture slides , what is the best way to UNDERSTAND the material from each module , does it meaning finding theories and writing them down or ... ?

    3) ALSO my biggest fear is exams , how can I build up confidence for my exams in january , what is the best way i can guarantee getting at least a 2:1 in my exam .

    any tips provided would be extremely helpful, thank you

    I also am in my final year. Our lecture slides go up 24 hours before the lecture which is followed by the seminar. I print the lecture notes off, read them and expand on them by reading around the theories in them and putting notes next to them ready for the seminar.
    I don't spend a whole day on anything, because I think that's counter productive.
    I do my studying in 20mins-half hour blocks.
    The only way to understand your module content is to read around it.
    0n the weekend, I spend quite a bit of time researching for my dissertation.

    Exams are different for everyone and everyone has to find their best way of dealing with them. I use Flash Cards and they work for me. If it's an essay question, I pick out the theories and make flash cards and memorise them.
    Then I line up the older grandchildren and get them to test me on the theories. Lol
    I'm sure there are younger and brighter students here who might do things differently and can give you better advice. Have faith in yourself. You have got this far.x
