Study Techniques

  1. 1. How to study for exams =) TECHNIQUES YOU CAN USE TO STUDY FOR A TEST OR EXAM Renee
  2. 2. Notes <ul><li>One of the most effective ways to study for exams is by making notes on everything that you have learnt throughout the year. </li></ul><ul><li>It is better to do them by topic. </li></ul><ul><li>Use large headings and different coloured pens to distinguish between headings and information. </li></ul><ul><li>Have a separate folder for each subject and dividers between each topic within that subject. </li></ul><ul><li>Make effective use of diagrams, mind maps and images. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Time management <ul><li>Jot down all the events that you have to attend – for example, athletics, lunch, part-time job… </li></ul><ul><li>Allocate specific tasks for carrying out school work and outside of school activities </li></ul><ul><li>Print off a timetable of a term as shown on the next slide. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep track of what you completed each day and whatever wasn’t completed, reschedule it into the next day or whenever possible. </li></ul>
