Any revision tips?

I’m planning on having no life from March onwards (to focus on revision).. at the same time, I don’t know where to start!

What have the most effective revision techniques been for you guys?

I’m a Law student

Erm, not entirely

- it ain't March yet
- man needs to actually work on doing some further reading before revision (learning) starts

Of course, if you put sorting out ya notes and doing further reading under the heading of 'revision', fair play to you, you should probably get started

(uni revision times are a third of A-level revision times - I had to cram 4 phat modules for 4 3-hour exams in 6.5 weeks last year)

everyone crams in april - getting more than 5 or 6 weeks of 'clean' revision time (i.e. time you spend revising not doing reading you shoulda done earlier) is a luxury

but you've already sat exams so you should know this -_-

Your situation might be better than mine. I’m a final year Law student 😭. I want to give myself the best chances for good grades

(So, don’t be too hard on yourself unless it’s necessary 😁)

I'm in my 3rd year so most my time at the moment is writing my dissertation.

I have a 100% coursework module and another module which is two seen essays. The titles of both have just been revealed so I shall be beginning to write those up over the coming weeks.

Once my dissertation hand-in date has passed (April 11th) and coursework (April 18th), I shall go full-speed on revising the seen essays for mid-May

How did you do in those exams? That’s almost 2 months to be fair 🙂

But yes I’m including all the notes and reading under the ‘revision’ heading

I’m going to cry.

What course do you study?

I have no seen exams and no coursework. Just exams and a dissertation 😭

You’re so lucky 👌 and best of luck with it all!

I am indeed very lucky this semester. I have had blind essay exams before :')

I'm currently doing an BSc in Genetics and Molecular Biology.

Just received an interview to do a MSc in Molecular Genetics and Diagnostics so the exams / coursework isn't quite over for me yet :P

John that's different. I exam-spotted my way through my Jan exams.

Fair enough, I'll catch up on my oct readings in march and 'revise' in april.

Haha 😂 well I’m sure you didn’t do terribly either!

And yes you’re right, I just wish my university lectures didn’t go on until the end of April! 😬
No lectures = more ‘revision’ time

I'm a law student too, we've only just started the semester so there's no way that we've learnt enough to even consider revising yet.
Though we do have formative assessments coming up soon. so I'm probably going to have no life at this point anyway.

I agree with that - I started my final semester beginning of Feb and don’t officially finish classes until April time. The timing is just silly - how can anyone revise for exams in 2 weeks 😭.

Hi5 to no life! ✋🏼

I'm off all next week so I plan to start writing my revision cards and stuff - I personally LOVE using revisions cards, learning them off by heart just really helps me and in the exam I can picture a specific card in my head and (hopefully) write it all out lol

I also have my dissertation to start so I will need to be doing that as well, as of next week!

Thanks for that - I forgot about mine but I do have a whole load of them that I never bother to use.
What subject are you studying? 🙂
