The Student Room Group

year 12 study journal!

I've been seeing a lot of these and since it's 2024 now I felt inspired to make my own - I'm starting this in hopes of procrastinating less and just to track all of my revision!

What I currently study:
Maths, Chemistry, Psychology and Japanese

Right now I am struggling with Maths and Chemistry (as I expected😭) but am hoping to improve these next few months.

Goals for this year:
- Study AT LEASSSTT two weeks before a test
- Be consistent with flashcards + notes
- Review everything I learned in class on the same day!!!!

personally i used to use quizlet esp for my gcses, but i just didn't find them as effective, so i tried out anki and i loveee it. Mostly because it has a spaced repetition algorithm which helps me to review things i'm less confident in! but ofc everyone is different so other methods or platforms might work better!
