I recently found out, that the way I was learning is passive, such as taking notes, etc.
But I am very confused about how to learn content without it being passive. Can someone please put some techniques on how to study/learn with active recall?
Thanks x

also, how would you use active recall for essay-based subjects such as English lit?

Learn and understand the topic.
Then just make questions about what you learned.
Simple.

Practice papers/questions. I heard of a guy who just wrote down questions instead of notes and just tested himself with them although he was in med school so... Flashcards are good as well but Personally i dont find them very useful.

According to Nathaniel Massiah, you can do practice questions but instead of writing entire essays just plan out how u would write it. Remembering key quotes and themes could be useful too.

I'd recommend watching Ali Abdaal's video on how to revise for exams where he talks about active recall/Spaced repetition. Hope this helps

Check out the website Seneca Learning! It gives quick overviews of notes and puts it into active recall and has most GCSE courses and A-Level etc. It's trackable too of what you have learnt and you're memory strength - hope this helps : D
