Decide on a subject and a topic that can be covered in 20 mins (junior students) or 30 - 40 mins (senior students).
Start reading your book or notes, highlight key points or
words. Take a blank sheet and put your topic in the middle
and add the main points around the topic.
As you write them you need to explain in your mind what
each point / word means
Flip the page, write the words from memory - this is testing
Repetition and writing points is the best method for
memorising facts or details.
Keep each "topic page" in a file for each subject and at the
end of a week or fortnight, look over the topic again, it
may be useful to find a related exam and test yourself.
Study is also more effective when you take care of other
aspects of your life.
» Have a good diet (sweet, fizzy drinks bring down your
energy, water improves it).
» Get a reasonable amount of sleep (late nights will make
you very tired during the school day).
» Get plenty of exercise (this will increase your energy).
Remember, You will not get good exam results without time
spent studying Study time can include homework.
