how do i study and revise ?Watch
im taking 3 international a level subjets (chem bio and phy) and i got terrible grades in them and ill be retaking them .
so i just wanted some tips and advice on how to study properly from the start and like from the book and then how to revise effectively
as well as some tips on note taking .
or maybe everyone can just tell me a few studying tips that works best for them .
im trying to really work hard from now on , so ill need all the help i can get .
In terms of tips for making notes, I definitely recommend making flashcards or a mind map, make short bullet points so the info is easier to remember and use colours as well to identify key terms. And practice questions is a must as well, look at past papers and open the mark scheme as well so you can see how to structure your answers. Good luck!
What would you suggest for a subject such as English lit/lang levels? its always so hard to find a way to study for English and I always end up just forgetting everything in the exam and just going with the flow when writing essays
Honestly I felt the same - for English literature, I wrote out the key quotes for every theme for the text and all the individual characters and analysed them on a huge word document, I tried to bullet point and keep the notes short and concise, and I also wrote out the quotes on one side of a flashcard, underlined key phrases/words and wrote what type of language skill was utilised, and then the full analysis on the other side. For language, I did practice questions, but I mainly just wrote out some good vocabulary that I could incorporate into my answers, which was really useful for the huge creative writing questions. Very good luck, the hard work you put in will pay off I promise!
Thank you! the flashcard idea for quotes are so good! like I could literally pre-analyse and all I gotta do is memorise it and in my answer write up like 2 quotes and incorporate it in my para. My weakness is language because im not very good with terms and I have a very limited terms to use haha. Thank you again!
