Study timetable.

October 14th, 2012 No comments

A study timetable is essential if you are going to achieve a good knowledge of all the topics in your subject. I would suggest you start making out a timetable six weeks before your exams. Make a note on your calendar the time, date and venue each exam takes place. If you are at school the venue will probably always be in the same place, but in a college or university the venue changes depending on the subject and available rooms. There is nothing worse than knowing the day of the exam and the time but not the actual room!

Start with each subject exam paper to see the content of questions. Perhaps you feel confident enough to tackle the exam paper, now. Get it marked and take a note of the grade. Then look at each subject and split it into topics. There maybe up to 6 topics of study. Work back from the exam date and each week decide which day or evening you are going to revise that particular topic. Once you have done this you should have a few days each week filled in with that subject’s topics. Do this process with all your other subjects.

Allow time during your study time for not only writing and re-writing your notes but also for reading over your notes at least two or three times. I find reading my notes out loud helps me understand them better. Try doing this method. Also, remember to score off each topic on your calendar as you complete it. This will let you see first hand how well you are progressing with your study.

Arrange your study time to have the day before the exam as a read over day. Do not attempt to learn anything new about the subject at this late stage. Use all the techniques mentioned in this website to help you with your studies. If you can do these things you will pass with flying colours!

Let us recap on what you have so far -

1. You have marked on the calendar when your exams take place.

2. You have allowed 6 weeks to revise for your exams.

3. Each subject has been split into topics.

4. You have allocated sometime each week to a particular topic.

5. You have made time to re-write your notes and read them out loud.

6. Score off each topic as you complete it.

7. If you have not tackled a past paper at the start then you should definitely sit down and attempt it before the exam date.

8. The day before each exam should be a read over notes day.

9. Use all the techniques mentioned in this website to help with your studies.

10. Have confidence in yourself that you have done everything you could to pass the exam.

New Term and Results

August 7th, 2012 No comments

With the New Term about to start this is the time to prepare yourself for successful results. You should treat the New Term as either a fresh start or a continuation of last terms success. If last year was not a good one for you then spent a short while reflecting on what went wrong. What was it that caused your lack of success? For many students the answer is lack of focus.  Make sure that is not going to be a factor this New Term!

Look on this New Term as a chance to achieve great results in your exams by being prepared. Lots of things are going to needed if this coming year is going to be better than this one. For example, one of the main criteria needs to be in your mind. I mentioned focus previously and in oeder to be focussed your mind needs to prioritise the things you do each day. We all have loads of demands on our time each day. Some of these things are self imposed and others are needless things that take up our time because other people want us to do them.

You may be wondering what I am on about, so here is an example – It is May and my exams are this month. I have several and I want to set aside time to revise for each of them. I have a plan of study and it all looks doable, but every time I start to study I get a text from one of my friends asking me to come round to their place. I really want to get into my revision but I am torn between doing study or going to my friends. If I am strong minded I should text back I am studying. If I am weak and easily persuaded then I run round to their place.

What I would recommend is being prepared to study by letting my friends know that between certain times I am studying and I will see them after that time and stick to that routine. If you are not strong willed enough for that then switch off your mobile phone at the start of your studying and tell anyone answering the landline telephone to say you are in the shower/bath and you will phone them back later!

Studying takes time and you have to create it this New Term in order to get results. Having said all of the above, there is another alternative. You and a few friends could create a study group. You decide between yourselves a plan of study and keep to it. Studying together works for some people because it can clarify some part of the course that previously was unclear. Hopefully everyone in the study group will have a particular strength and this will help you achieve succesful results this New Term!

Learn Maths Quickly.

April 3rd, 2012 No comments

Now is the time to learn Maths quickly. With most tests and exams taking place in April, May and June it is very important that you do well. Learning Maths will really help you with these tests and exams. Whether it is Maths, Physics or other Science subjects, they all will benefit when you are able to do Maths easier and quicker.

Using techniques that are proven over many years this programme really works quickly. So even if you think it is too late to learn new stuff, you will be amazed once you give this programme a chance to make the difference in your understanding and knowledge. To find out more about this amazingly easy and quick way to learn Maths -

Click Here!

Why am I promting this programme? Well my grand daughter is 9 years old and is a bright girl who has always been eager to learn. The other day I asked her what she was doing at the moment in Maths at school? She said Volume. So I tested her with the volume of a cuboid sides 18cm x 6cm x 4cm and instantly in her head she was able to give me the answer 432 cubic centimetres. How many 9 year olds do you think could do that in their heads? I tried her with two further volume questions and she again gave me the correct answers – done in her head within less than a minute.

I am now eager to try this programme out on her little sister, aged 6 years old. Therefore, if you really want to improve your childrens ability in Maths I would thoroughly recommend this programme. Lets face it, what is the alternative to learning outwith school – tutoring. Tutors usually charge anywhere between £15 and £25 per hour for their services. Using their traditional ways which are based on the exact same ways as they are teaching during the school hours it will take many hours for the child to learn. Of course, many hours also mean lots of £15 – £25 will soon mount up to several hundred pounds of your money being spent on tutoring.

You are on this page because you are interested in learning how to study for exams. Well this is one of the most effective ways. Click Here!

New term – start studying!

October 3rd, 2010 No comments

With the new term just started it is time to get your studying routine organised.  You should know the subjects you will be examined on. These are the topics you should concentrate your time on. Some of you will have end of unit exams due within the next few weeks; while others may have to wait until Christmas or soon after.

List your exam topics that are due the soonest. Portion the amount of time you think you need to thoroughly understand the subject. In otherwords if there is a lot of content to absorb then allow more time each week to learn it. After all not every subject will need the same amount of time spent on it. You decide how you are going to plan it.

In your room you should have an area for keeping all your study notes. A folder for each topic or subject is really required to keep your notes separate from each other. Therefore at the end of each lecture or day you should take your notes and after rewriting them, if necessary, put them into the correct folder.

I mentioned above the practice of rewriting your notes. This is a good way of learning your topic. By actually rewriting your additional notes given during the lecture you will have a better understanding of the subject. It will go deeper into your subconscience.

Now is the time to study for your exams! January is really the time you should make a real effort to get to grips with your subjects. The New Year brings with it many resolutions to improve your life. Getting serious about your course should be one of them. After all your long term welfare will depend on how you succeed this year with your exams.

Do not put off studying despite all the distractions around you. Get focussed now and let others around you know that you are really intent on succeeding this term. OK they might not believe you at first but stick with it and in a week or two they will get the message and leave you alone to get on with studying. One or two might even join you to study because they too were waiting for someone to lead the way!

If you need text books to help with your studying, buy them cheap at our store – www.know-how-ebooks.co.uk . Remember gather all the information around you, notes, text books, photocopies etc. and get down to it!
