While most people think it’s a little bit crazy to start revision at the end of April, now is the perfect time to get a head start.
There are several advantages to starting taking revision notes now:
- You save yourself the panic of doing them in revision week. Instead you can be focused on the act of actually revising during that time. So save yourself the stress and start now.
- You are more likely to retain the information as you learn and re-learn the material at three separate times – when you first learn it, when you write your revision notes and revising just prior to exams.
- It gives you time to reflect on what you have learnt and how it fits into the overall material and purpose of the semester.
You also have more time to combine your notes with other members of your study group if you have one.
Don’t leave revision until the last moment. You want to start as soon as possible so you can prepare the best you can and get the best result on your final exam.
