Exam study tips 

Exam study tips 

It can often feel overwhelming and stressful trying to balance studying for all your subjects when studying for exams. Having strategies in place to lower stress levels and improve productivity can allow you to achieve the most out of your exams.

Make a plan. (And stick to it!)

Initially, making a study plan/routine allows you to visualise when all your exams are going to occur and how long you have to study for them. Spending some time visualising the work that needs to be done can save time in the long run. Once you have a plan written up, set some goals you wish to achieve during your study period. This might include how many hours of each subject you wish to work on a week, or the number of topics you wish to cover in a given time frame.

An important aspect of this step is to make your goals achievable. Often, we want to set big goals, but the key to exam study is stamina. If we work too hard at the start, we can burn out, which can lead to achieving less overall.
So, try and set achievable goals and allow you to work at a steady and consistent pace throughout your entire exam study period.

Create a study space

Another tip to help this process is having a designated space to complete your work that is limited in distractions. If you are a visual person having a wall to put up notes and revision can be really helpful when trying to remember tricky content.

Walking past a sticky note on the wall a couple of times a day can help improve your memory retention for content you wish to remember. Another tip during study periods is taking regular breaks and, if you can, spending some time outside in fresh air, which can help to relax and destress.

Figue out what works for you

When studying, many different techniques can work for different people, so it’s important to find a style of study that works for you. For example, some people like to learn through rewriting content, others like to draw diagrams, and others like to watch video content. Once you find a method that works for you, use it and pay close attention to your course content.

Practice exams. Do as many as you can!

Also, don’t be afraid to ask for help. There are often many people around us who would be happy to help. Sometimes, we need a different perspective to understand a tricky question.

Overall, while exam study periods can be very stressful, it is important to remember that they end, and hard work is often rewarded. Good luck
