Everyone learns differently and with the exam season looming it is important to take advantage of successful techniques to improve your learning. Among the many study tips, we have gathered a few tried and tested methods to help you make the most of your revision time and help you achieve the results you deserve.
Set a time and place
This may seem obvious but, in our experience,, it is helpful to have a clear ‘study zone’, free of distractions to aid you in focusing your mind to the task. Many struggle to revise for long periods of time, so why not set an alarm to remind you to take a break every hour or half hour? This will help you remain motivated if you know you are scheduled a break.
Sometimes the assistance of another person can be vital in aiding you in cementing your knowledge. Perhaps you have a classmate revising the same material or a family member willing to test you. Our skilled tutors are also equipped with a range of study techniques, patience and understanding to help you achieve success this exam season.
Vary the topic
If you have many subjects to revise, try changing the topic frequently. This will keep your brain active and allow you to devote equal time to each subject. Information is easier to remember in smaller chunks and changing the topic will allow you to digest the information you have just read.
Give yourself enough time
As tempting as it may be to leave the revision to the night before a big test, this will increase your stress and anxiety, leave less time for you to absorb the information and is likely to result in poorer results. Start early, plan your revision time and avoid last-minute panic!
