Hey everyone, welcome or welcome back to Maya’s Life and Travels. Recently, I have been spending so much time revising for exams and I have been waking up earlier than usual to revise. I have my own personal revision methods to revise and I really wanted to share them with you guys.
Anyways, that’s enough of talking about my exams, I just wanted to say that I uploaded a new video on the Youtube Channel where I share some highlights from my birthday. It’s a super short video since I have been busy so check it out (video linked below).
METHOD 1 – REWRITING 10 – 20 TIMES AND REPEATING EACH TIME YOU WRITE SOMETHING
So, for me method one is the most time consuming but I believe it is the most effective one out of all of them. First off, find something really important relating to a certain topic in your upcoming exam. So for this example I want to revise the definition of a strong acid. Next, write the definition 10 – 20 times and each time you write it say the definition out loud until you remember it off by heart. I did this method for my exams and I am safe to say it actually works really well, I was able to remember things because of method 1. But, it’s all good doing method 1 once because it can be easy to forget the thing you are revising so I suggest doing this every day until your exam.
METHOD 2 – MAKE REVISION CARDS
Now, I am sure all of you have heard of this way to revise. I know this one of the most simplest ones but I believes it is super effective. Revision cards are great to revise things that are really important in a certain topic. To do this method, write the question on one side and then write the answer on the other. Finally, keep revising and then get someone to test you. However, it is really to easy get confused so I suggest writing the subject at the top of the revision card to avoid confusion.
METHOD 3 – RECORD YOUR VOICE AND KEEP REPLAYING IT
Listening to your voice again and again and again can be so annoying for some people but when it comes to revising it is super useful. I have done this multiple times in the past and I can proudly say it 100% works. Recording your voice and replaying it is a more efficient method compared to method 1. When I did this for my exams, I recorded myself reading something from my revision powerpoint and I kept replaying it over and over again. Some studies show that you can learn in your sleep so if you record your voice before you go to sleep and place Airpods or Headphones in your ears when your sleeping you can learn it while your sleeping!
That’s some of the methods I use when I revise for exams! I am going to be doing more of these posts and I was thinking of doing a whole studying series where I post things relating to studying. What do you all think, do you want a studying series on the blog? I would love to hear from you all in the comments. See you in the next post.
