Mr Sardar Posted December 8, 2009 Report Share Posted December 8, 2009 VJKK VJKFji Hi Just wanted to ask any advice on how to do really good in exams? For me personally as Ive gotten older my brain aint as spongy as it used to be where I could absorb info for exams quick, be it for gcse 1 quick read of cgp revision guide was enough. Techniques I got from others via word of mouth are; Read all notes, re-read until satisfiedread extra material use google Nicely, use libraries expand your material for studyTalk to your mates on your course they always know what is goodTalk to your teacher (email, in person) they always have tipsDo all past papers with solutions and tutorial (homework) questions make own summarised notes, highlight, different colour pens, underline italic bold, quick revision cards, make pictures/diagrams, spider diagrams, brainstormssleep well on time and wake up on time (early to sleep, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealth and wise)Eat proper no junk food, 3 meals a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner/supper), 5 fruits and veg, 2ltrs of water a day (no fizzy drinks), nuts/pistacho/almonds are good for the brainDont listen to music like rap, they tend to kill brain cells, music like classical tunes can help but keep clear mindIsolate yourself, time between you and the books (no tv, no facebook, no msn, no wasting time on net for other things which are not work, no radio, no tv, no chilling time)Take sensible breaks in between studies the human brain can concentrate upto 45mins in 1 go, take maybe 5-20mins breaksMake a timetable for study including what you plan to study PRACTICE, PRACTICE and Practice (exam questions tend to repeat) Please add on, elaborate on these discuss what works for you, maybe any hidden techniques, maybe a paath anyone knows or secret item of food. anything else VJKK VJKFji 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
