Our 10 tips for an organised study session
How can you survive the difficult period of study before the exams? With our ten tips, you should pass your exams with flying colours!
1. Make sure your syllabuses are in order
before the start of the study session.
2. The best way to calm your nerves is to draw up a good study schedule
. This means not concentrating your study on the last few weeks and dividing up the material over the whole study session.
3. During the study session, estimate how much time
you think you'll need to study each subject. Be realistic, take breaks, relax, eat, sleep, etc.
4. After planning your study schedule, you also need to develop a study method
for each subject. Don't study everything by heart, but work outlines.
5. Consider what time of day
you study best: in the morning, in the afternoon or in the evening? Not everyone concentrates at the same time of day.
6. Start with an easy lesson
. Then move on to the more difficult subjects before returning to the easier ones at the end of the study session. Of course, it's always advisable to alternate as much as possible.
7. Pay sufficient attention
to your lessons. Make diagrams, look at sample exams, ask questions, read and underline your syllabus, talk about the subject with other students...
8. Concentrate on the main points
of the course. Don't get lost in the details. If you have time, go into more details.
9. When preparing for the exam, repetition
is of high importance. Study the syllabus several times, but not too closely. The more you repeat, the faster you learn and the better you know your subject.
10. You can often retain the structure of the syllabus by memorising its table of contents
You now have everything you need to make a success of your session. Good luck to you!
