Top 5 revision tips♥ ·

1. DRINK LOTS OF WATER 

Water bottle
Drinking water is essential for concentration. I know most people
struggle to get in 5-8 glasses a day. But when you're studying there is no excuse. Put a water bottle on your desk and keep drinking as you study. I have started doing this and the difference really is noticeable during studying. A refreshed body is a refreshed mind. 

2. USE STUDY CARDS


This is probably the best bit of advice when it comes to studying. It sounds really unnecessary and time consuming but trust me it really does work. If you choose a different colour card for each topic, write the question on one side and the answer on the other. You can learn and test yourself at the same time. Spend about an hour learning a topic. Test yourself on the cards every few hours and notice how you start to remember things. This method is probably my secret to scoring 1sts and 2:1's in exams. 

3. TAKE BREAKS

It is important to take regular breaks whilst you are studying. 
You can't just sit there studying for 4 hours and expect anything to actually sink in. Take some breaks, read a magazine, do your nails, snack on some fruit. I love snacking from fruit bowls whilst reading and note taking from journal articles.

4. DO NOT CRAM

There may be a lot of topics to study but it's not good to try and remember everything in one go. It's better to split the topics into days or even weeks whilst studying. For example I have a 6 topic consumer behaviour exam coming up tomorrow. What I tend to do is study one topic for about 3 days and then move on to the next topic. This way is very systematic and ensures that you don't confuse yourself. 

5. TEST YOURSELF

sure its good to do a lot of studying. But whats the point if you don't know how much has truly sunk in?. You need to test 
yourself every now and then. Write out a paper with questions/theories from different topics and see how much has sunk in. This method also gives you an extra boost of confidence for the real exam.
