how to use my time effectively studyingWatch
I have just started my A levels and i want to know how to effectively study for them.
It depends on what subjects you are doing. My A levels (maths, further maths, physics, computer science) and other STEM subjects just need you to pay attention in lesson, do lots of practice questions, and make sure to ask for help on a question if you can't answer it because you will move on very quickly (apart from computer science it's the easiest stem A level IMO)
For very content heavy (psych, history, politics, business, etc) you will be wanting to make lots of revision cards (I hope you like them!) and very good notes so that you can review them when you need to. Organisation will be imperative and the memorisation will be a hard slog at times (my gf is doing all content heavy and the notes are ridiculous) these content heavy tips will also apply to biology as this is very content heavy.
I hope this helped!
P.S: I showed gf and she said that mind maps are also really good for content
Also practising exam questions is very important - when you lose marks you have to identify where you have made mistakes, fix them and practise those areas in the future. And, as above users have mentioned, don’t revise for too long. Once you feel yourself getting tired you have to have a break or stop completely.
You will get better at revising as you go through sixth form, it’s a skill.
I did a lot of questions for Maths and Further Maths.
Physics I did mindmaps and a lot of questions. Although can use index cards or flashcards.
Chemistry I did same as Physics although I spent less time revising chemistry as I only needed a B grade then and already had enough to make it an A grade.
