It’s Week 6, Time to Buckle Down!

Quick Study Tips
Study in groups!
Getting a group of fellow classmates together to go over your notes and discuss class material is a good way to see different perspectives on the same material. You then have the opportunity to understand the same content in different ways. Plus, this doesn’t have to be a physical meet up, set up a time to group call on your favourite online chat platform and study with your friends from your own home. Group study can be easy, fun and productive too, so use what you have!
Use Flow Charts and Diagrams!
Having something more visual to look at while revising for exams can keep your attention for longer. Piece together all the information you’ve learnt so far and connect them with lines and arrows so your brain can make the connections faster and easier. Keep your notes looking colourful and interesting will make studying that little bit easier and keep yourself focused on the task at hand.
As much as it’s important to get all of your studying done before exams start, you need to keep caring for your body physically as well as mentally. Make sure you’re drinking lots of water, and having plenty of rest in between study sessions, classes and work. When you sit down and rest, your mind can better digest all of the information you’ve learnt that day/that week/that term without overloading yourself.
