Hey guys, I’m second year biomed student
My exams are starting from next week, and I have 4 modules worth memorising.

I am just so stressed out and I was wondering if you had any tips and hints that would make my revision efficient and quicker to get it in my brain?

Thanks so much!

Only you know what makes knowledge stick. You will have done exams before to get to this stage so what worked for you earlier? Do you make your own notes or just read and re-read stuff over and over or use any other form of memory techniques?

Attempt lots of techniques and identify which one works for you.
Try mind maps, written notes, highlighters, flash cards, exam style questions, rereading, making up a song etc

Depends what kind of learner you are.. Personally i'm an auditory learning so I spent most of the second semester last year just re-listening to lectures on my ipod and then re reading through the powerpoint after to add anything that i'd picked up while listening. I did this so much that by exam time i could crack the same joke as the lecturer in any given lecture (ok that's a bit sad but it worked :P)

I also made piles and piles of notes, mostly to make me feel productive... I didn't read over much of it :/

Also, idk if you get points for "extra reading" at your uni but i always found it helpful to supplement lecture concepts with the recommended textbooks
