With remote assessments in the near future, many of us students are starting to get on with revision. Here’s some tips!
- Plan what you’re doing each day and establish a revision timetable.
- Plot down what topic you’re going to revise, and when. It means that you don’t waste time each day figuring out what to do.
- People study differently, but having the resources you’re going to revise from created is important.
- Spend some time creating notes, flashcards or whatever works for you. Summarise the information so you can understand it.
- Create a space in your home for you workspace.Whether that be a desk, a dining table or even an ironing board.
- Find somewhere that works for you.
- We’re all guilty of spending long days to cramming in as much revision as possible. Breaks are essential for you to retain information.
- It helps you feel refreshed and motivated to revise again.
Goals and Rewards
- Setting yourself goals and rewards can help you work efficiently. For example, setting yourself a goal to spend an hour revising and then rewarding yourself with a twenty minute break of watching some YouTube videos can be helpful. Use apps such as Forest to prevent you from digital distraction!
- It gives you structure when it comes to revision, and something to look forward to at the end.
- The most important thing to remember is to look after yourself. Get plenty of sleep, drink lots of water and eat right. Your eating habits can affect both your mood and your productivity levels.
- Revision doesn’t have to consume us, it’s just about finding a balance that works for you.
Good luck with your remote assessments!
