Targetting towards my way of learning through school:
1. Print off the specification and go through it, highlight if that works for you, add some colour for the things you dont know
2. Go through the things you forget repetatively from the actual textbook
3. On a flashcard, write down some of the things you forget so it is easier to access
4. Once going through most of the content, make sure you look at PAST PAPER! They are a gold mine! Go through the mark scheme and understand why you got the questions wrong, wrong. Learn the key words!
I learn through reading more than writing, so I make sure I read it many times so that the information get into my head.
Targetting towards my way of learning in uni:
1. Look at what I need to learn for the exam
2. Go through the topics one by one, read it once and skim, read is again taking more information in, third time critically read, look up on the internet
3. (If you are close with the upper years, refer to their notes and add to yours using their information)
4. See if there are any past papers and use them, google the answers if unknown.
5. Keep going through the same content, it will stick much quicker if you do it offen.
-Make sure you take regular breaks for your eyes especially when using a laptop/computer to revise
-Make sure you also do some physical activity, to increase circulation and productivity
-Make sure you have juice or water and some snack as well
-Try and get a sleep pattern - use the bedtime tab on iPhones (not sure on androids) or download an app, that way you obtain a routine for yourself
-Make sure you don't work all day! You will burn out!
-Ask for help when ever you need it - friends, family, teachers, etc.
-Make sure your physically and mentally well. Revision can be draining so always do something you love inbetween - drawing, dancing, listening to music (I don't listen to music when I work because I tend to end up singing the words or tapping my pen to the beat
-Make revision fun! Make a quizlet, test your friends, etc.
Good luck for the upcoming exams
