1. Gather Everything You Need Before You Cram for An Exam!
Notebook? Check. Your fave pens? Check. Snacks? Check. You know the drill. Any reference books, past year papers and notes from tuition- anything you have on deck would definitely come in handy.
2. Turn off All Social Media
We all know that this is the biggest distraction yet! The best way to end procrastination on your phone is by setting it aside or even just putting it on silent OR if you want to go the extra mile, hand your phone over to either one of your parents and warn them to not give it back to you until you’ve understood that chapter inside out! It could make all the difference.
3. Time yourself!
Cramming is all about finding a study pattern that suits you! It is recommended that you spend 50 minutes studying and the remaining 10 minutes on anything else. It could be singing, dancing, petting your cat, your pick! Just remember to not get carried away and get back to work right after.
4. Focus on Big Ideas and Key Details
Confused where to start? Look out for key people, dates, equations, formulas, explanations for big ideas! Filter out the rest, and make sure to highlight the important stuff and make notes based on them. Usually, it’s best to memorise these facts and the next tip could definitely help with this...
5. Talk to Yourself!
We know you’re perfectly fine! But repeating the facts out loud could make all those dates, numbers and facts stickier. Don’t be shy, don’t forget the hand motions, accents, expressions- do the whole show! This could make it easier for you to remember important facts.
We do advise that you only do this in the privacy of your own room tho. Practicing this outside might brand you as the sibling who’s lost it.
6. Get Your References Online!
You can find almost ALL the information you need online, from answers to past year papers all the way to methods on how to multiply quicker without a calculator! The Internet is one of the best places to learn, and to do that… you’d need smooth high-speed internet! Wanna know how? We got your back!
