I am in year 12 now and ipassed all of my GCSE's but I do not know how!!! The reasn why I don't know how is because i still cannot find the best way for me to help me revise and for the information to stay in my head. How do people cope with ths?
And can anyone give me ideas on howto revise???
Post-its are very useful. You can write key facts and figures or details down (particularly ones you know you will not remember easily) and stick them around your room in places where you will see them.
They become a constant reminder of what you need to learn.
Listing and writing things down always works best for me.
Hope this helps.
i revise in like this.
Well, those little sticky pads are great for sticking around your room.
I have them on my mirror, my door places i look at all the time. they have equations i must not forget etc etc,
Hope this mite help
Despite there being many ways to revise and no doubt there are some good ones for you, the most important thing is to do something!
Although of little effectiveness, simply reading through your notes is a start. Re-writing, sorting, compiling lists are all a bit better. Try teaching someone (a brother, sister, parent, pet dog or even the wall). If you have to put it into words to help someone else understand, it will stick in your brain. How do you think your teachers got so good at remembering loads of bits of information?
i find using little flashcards easy to revise with. u can take them with u any where u go because they are so small. u can put important fromulas and key facts on them. i also remember things by colour so i put lots of colour into my notes and highlight the main points.
i have also been told by other friends from A2 that u should revise the work that u do in class at home as soon as u get it otherwise u will just forget it. teachers have told me to make notes again and again reducing down each time is a good way as well.
hope this helps
1-BUY A NOTE BOOK FOR EACH SUBJECT
2-WRITE THE EQUATIONS U'VE LEARNED UNTIL NOW
3-WRITE SMALL & SHORT SENTENCES ON EACH LESSON
(AS BULLET POINTS)(KEEP IT BRIEF & SIMPLE )
4-MAKE UR NOT BOOK COLORED WITH DIFFERENT PENS
I used to listen to the Harry Potter books on CD when I was trying to concentrate because they helped me to relax but I actually found that by listening to the stories over and over, I could recall parts of them by heart. I'm taking A2 Psychology and I've got 15 essays to remember so I bought a voice recorder, recorded all the essays on to it and listen to them whenever I can and it really starts to sink in. Its helps because hearing one sentence triggers the next one in your brain and its easier to recall stuff that you've heard repeatedly. And you can multitask because even if you're not concentrating on listening, the information is still going in, almost subconsciously. Voice recorders aren't expensive and you can get them with tapes so you can include all your notes.
they have told me at school that im basicaly failing...so its not only life now its school too. because of this i have to see a mentor who helps out with things like revision. she is helping a little bit and the best revision tip i have come across is this mindmapping, try it its like a spider diagram but you csn list all youre info needed to revise in it! it does work honest!
try using colour on it as well
just write out all the stuff ur learning n den keep doin this ova n ova agen. This is a much better method for the subjects such as law sociology; the 'essay' subjects.
Mindmapping, spider diagrams, lists, listening to the information, going through past questions etc etc are all useful ways of revising. Number one importance is to DO SOMETHING.
Once you find a tactic that works for you, try it first for the next exercise but if it isn't working for you on that item, try something else.
When you are revising past questions, try to get it clear in your mind why a certain answer is correct while something close is not good enough. In "last minute mode" there is a temptation to flit about and panic. Try to stay calm and take each bit at a time.
Don't be overfaced by a mountain of revision, break it into chunks. Remember that you would (if forced to) eat an elephant one bite at a time.
One final thing. No offence to those of you who are better at it than me, but writing in txt code makes life more difficult for you. Your brain has been trained over the years to read and recognise "proper" words. If you use another language, your brain has to translate and that makes an extra step. You ought to try to use mnemonics to help you link ideas togther rather than put barriers in the way.
putting it in smaller info usally helps too
Compact all of your information into bullet points and put them on coloured flash cards. The flash cards are small which means they are easy to carry around and also the information put on them must be easy to remember.
Try revising from the flash cards as if you were practising a speech remember each bullet point in order.
It helped me anyway!
Hope it helps you!
Some people would say that the act of putting the information onto the flashcards is as important as being able to carry them round with you. This means that there is more to be gained by creating your own than simply borrowing or copying from a friend. Share the workload and work together, by all means, but make sure that you are involved and busy.
At this stage, though, any revision you feel works for you is useful.
right, im what is called a visual learner, i learn by patterns , shapes and colours they stick in my mind, when i revise, i get the book from my chosen subject and get an A2 piece of paper and make a massive poster , write , draw your notes make it bright and colourful and put it somwhere in your bedroom , i automatically read mine before i get into bed at night, it is said that is when u most remember things so revise just before you go to sleep. also have breaks inbertween revision so you dont get bored and frustraited =D hope this helpes xx:sleeping::D
i think you can learn fast and maybe when information get into your head you can easily remember it .well not everybody is as this bright.i was like that in my primary school but when i got to secondary school it became the other way and i had to learn how to study on my own.i was forced to read immediately i get home from school and from there i learnt how to study on my own.
