Is it bad to revise/make notes for a subject in a week? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I done biology (made notes on all of it), I am planning to do computer science this week all of it and by the 1st of May I should be able to get every subject done. Then I have two weeks to revise it all and to do questions.

    Is this a good idea and has anyone done this? Because I get very stressed out doing a lot of subjects in a week!

    Depends on each person. If it works for you then do it, I personally do notes. For some subjects flash cards and then mainly PP questions

    Anyone else?

    If you have made quality notes and it helped you, then of course it's fine. For me, I think that would be too quick (I've been making notes for all subjects since Sep.)

    Depends on what subject and which chapter.

    My studying style has proven to paid off for my GCSE (8A*2A)

    It's much more effective to revise different subjects at once, rather than one at a time. It means that your brains actually retains more of the info and has a chance to process and understand it. By just studying one subject for the week and then moving on, your brain has less chance to process the info and so remembers less. You'll find using this method that by the time you get to exams, you don't remember a huge amount from each subject.
    May be worth investing time in creating a revision timetable and studying a few subjects each week. And instead of just making notes, doing a lot of testing as this is the most effective revision techniques.
    Hope this helpful!
