5 Study Tips

Hello everyone!

I mostly write about beauty on this blog but I also want to write about subjects that are useful for you, my readers. If you're in school/college/university then chances are you're going to be sitting exams at some point, and you want to be prepared as possible for them. Today I am going to share some study tips that work for me, and I hope they work for you too!

1. Leave enough time!
This first tip may be obvious but, unfortunately, a lot of people do not leave enough time to revise all of their course content before their exam. You don't want to be waiting until the week, day or hour before an exam! I find that starting with a small amount of revision about 5 months before an exam works for me, and then I revise a little bit more each week leading up to the exam, and that way I've covered everything I need to. 

2. Make a revision timetable
I always find it useful if I make a revision timetable before I start studying and then I know what I'm going to be studying each day without wasting precious revision time by searching for what topic I need to cover next. So, make a revision timetable and STICK TO IT!

3. Find a method that works for you
You definitely don't want to be sitting for hours on end copying paragraphs from a textbook, you need to find a good revision method that works best for you. It may be mind maps, flashcards or something else, but whatever it is make sure you are covering all information that could possibly show up on the exam.

4. Tidy up
There is absolutely nothing worse than sitting in a messy room trying to revise. You'll waste lots of time looking for paper, pens and whatever else you could possibly need. Tidy up whatever room you're going to be studying in and get out all of your equipment so you're not wandering around endlessly looking for things. 

5. Take breaks
This is probably one of the most important study tips, and you've probably heard it a million times but I am going to say it again! Take short breaks at regular intervals so that you don't become restless. If you sit for hours on end reading books and doing revision then you will definitely not be able to remember everything you have revised that day. What I find useful is revising for 20 minutes, taking a 5 minute break and then testing myself on what I just revised. 

So, they are 5 of my best study tips! I hope that these help you in some way. What are your study tips? 

Until next time,
