- study using the syllabus (this has seriously helped me and saved a lot of time for me!!!)
- ALWAYS make notes using the syllabus objectives and then keep studying those notes plus use them whilst doing past papers. These notes should be like an "answer" to all the bullet points / objectives in the syllabus
• students must know the value of pi
your note should be:
- pi has the value of 3.14159...
keep doing that and try your best to both UNDERSTAND and REMEMBER all those notes - you can even remember if you have a photographic memory. This can be achieved if you constantly use the syllabus and literally just memorize the structure of the contents. So you'll easily remember what topic 1 mentions or what you don't understand from topic 4 and sometimes if you can't remember stuff, thinking about the syllabus or simply just picturing it for a few minutes could possibly help you remember certain topics.
the key is to make these notes months before exams and then constantly use them to study, or even while doing past papers - and trust me, you'll definitely do better! MARK MY WORDS! (but that's if you follow all the steps I've mentioned and put in just the right amount of effort)
Oh and, stick to one motto: "If it isn't in the syllabus then it most definitely will not be in the exam"
- BUT, if unfamiliar things do pop up in the exam despite not being covered in the syllabus, then as a school, you can sue the exam board involved (just stating facts!)
NOTE: You should always read ahead just to get an idea of what you'll be studying the next day / week / month.
