Top 5 Study Tips
1Never get discouraged by a couple of bad results. It is never too late to turn things around as long as you learn from your mistakes and keep trying.
2Practicing with past exam questions is extremely useful and often helps more than simply memorising your notes.
3Study groups are a great way to revise. Don't hesitate to ask your friends and peers about their opinions and to learn from them. In turn, explaining your answers to others also helps consolidate your own knowledge.
4Make your notes according to the syllabus! This way you will be confidant that you have covered everything!
5Eliminate distractions! It is important to keep your notes and your desk neat in order to make your study efficient. A short concentrated block of study is always better than studying for hours while distracted by your laptop or phone.
