i was a procrastinator and also got tired of it.
try backward planning.
starting with the date of the exam, plan your prep in reverse, with an hour or so devoted to each subject. take good notes and make up 3x5 cards with key points on each subject after each session. study/review information on the 3x5 cards for an hour or so each week so that the older information is committed to memory and the newer information gets reviewed.
this worked for me through high school, ug and graduate school, as well as for professional certifications.11
I would say to rank your responsibilities into two categories:
Due first / Due last
Important / Not Important
and make sure you work on the urgent assignments first, even if they are worth very little
And any time you have extra time, tackle an important but not important assignment by breaking it down into stages
In university, I always finished my assignments at least 5 days before the deadline so I could edit for grammar and spelling errors
Sometimes I would edit a 5 page essay 30 times
I once got 40% above the class average on a 24 page essay12
What Girls & Guys Said
—when in graduate school, I studied all every day. It took discipline. 5am starting from class one and reviewing until present class. bed at 10:30pm.
—there were other Assistantship responsibilities SO you’re forced to do it. I was like that in high school though.-Taught to do that I should say.
-No TV since 17, never a tech game, etc… university scholarship athlete.
—CHANGE the way you live…11
Last minute studying never worked for me.
I was never one of those people you saw sitting in a library or study hall for the last 12 hours before an exam.
I either got it through the semester or I didn't; it was that simple10
What subjects is this for?3
I do yes. Every lesson you have throughout the year contains some very important information, jumbled up with some useless stuff too.
So make notes of everything you deem important and at the end of each day you will have interesting and vital stuff you don't want to forget.
Make questions out of them and add them to individual lists within a ring binder, and every day? Call them over again and again..
Eventually you will have a massive amount of questions you have to call over so separate them into groups and call over 150 questions each day. Making sure you call over every question at least once every week.
If you forget the answer to a question? add it to a separate list that you call over more frequently.. carry it with you
That was something akin to the way I studied for the London Knowledge and I passed it in less that 2 years.. something that is almost unheard of..
If you want to know more, type this into google " How hard is the London Knowledge?"
and if I can be of any more help? Just ask!
I understand, thank you. 🙏 What kind of questions should I make? And do I do that for every subject?
Right then.. You need a large style ring binder folder and these (Elba 12-Part A4 Assorted Card Dividers )
That separates the subjects.
Now. and remember I am showing you how to adapt the way to remember certain information in the same way I did the above..
Let's use Maths as the first example. You're familiar with sine/cosine and tangents I assume?
I would start the question like this:-
How do you know which cosine rule to use?
The sine rule is used when we are given either a) two angles and one side, or b) two sides and a non-included angle.
The cosine rule is used when we are given either a) three sides or b) two sides and the included angle.
I would have a list of several questions from each subject.. call them over every day and you will train the hippocampus inside your brain to such a degree, by the time you are finished? You will be able to recall any of the information you wrote down better than ANYONE i your entire school, and yes more than the teachers too.
So make sure you write down ONLY what is valuable to you and needed to ass.
I know you have 'The Chase' in the US because I've watched it, but you know the chasers? They use the exact method I am teaching you to become the brainiest people o TV..
Got it! I'll definitely start doing it. Thank you so much for your time tu explain and for the great advices!🤍
You're very welcome and I hope it helps.
