STUDY TIPS AND EXAMS WITH EASE....

Memory is all about retention and recall. The mind takes in information and keeps information. It remembers from a huge store of information, the special piece of information we require at a specific time.

  • Meaning, relevance and value
    If something is to have meaning for you, you have to understand it. You cannot learn what you do not understand. In order to remember something so that you can write well on it in an examination, you must be interested in it. It must have value and relevance in your life.
  • Attitude
    Your attitude towards what you are learning has everything to do with whether you learn it and remember it or not. You must choose to remember. It will not just happen by itself.
  • Rehearsal/Repetition
    Repeating ideas out loud in your own words strengthens the nerve synaptic connections in your brain! This rehearsal gives you immediate feedback. The more feedback your brain gets, the faster and more accurate your learning will become as these pathways in your brain become established.
  • Mental pictures
    The brain’s quickest and, quite probably the longest-lasting, responses are to images or pictures. When you make a mental picture, you use an entirely different part of the brain from the parts you use when reading or listening.
  • Consolidation
    Your brain must have time for new information to consolidate or become securely fixed in it. When you review your notes after a class, you are using the principle of consolidation. You are making sure that the new information sticks.
  • Learn less more often
    A series of shorter study sessions spread out over several days works better for most people than fewer but longer study sessions. Try to break your study time up into shorter units. This does not mean fewer hours of study!
  • Basic knowledge
    Your understanding of new material depends on what you already know. Knowledge gives us what we call cognitive “hooks”. If these are already in place, you can hang up the new material quite easily next to what you already know. It is a bit like having hooks for your clothes. If you have enough hooks you can hang them all up. If you have too few hooks a lot of them stay on the floor. The more you increase your basic knowledge, the easier it is to attach new knowledge onto these hooks.
  • Grouping ideas
    Learning and remembering is much easier if you can group ideas into some sort of meaningful categories or groups.
  • Connections
    This works a bit like grouping but in a different way. Your memory works better when the facts to be learnt are consciously associated with something that is familiar to you. Ask yourself: “Is this like something that I already know and understand?”
  • Acronyms
    Using acronyms helps you to remember information. Form an acronym to remember information in any order that works for you. Each acronym can be a real word or a nonsense word that you are able to pronounce. To form an acronym, write down the facts that you need to remember:
    Doctor’s On Thursday Science On Friday at Two
    Arrange the bold letters to form the acronyms DOT and SOFT.

How do you write a good examination?
  1. Before starting the exam, clear all thoughts from your mind, relax, breathe normally and take it easy for a minute or two.
  2. Turn over the paper and read the instructions carefully to make completely sure you understand what you are required to do.
  3. Read through all the questions very carefully.
  4. Work out how much time you have for each question and decide which question or questions you will answer first. It is often better to begin with the ones you find the easiest because this will increase your confidence.
  5. Take note of the key words which tell you what to do in each question. There are three main forms:
    1. words that require you to do something specific, e.g. ‘Explain’, ‘Discuss critically’, ‘Comment’
    2. question words like: ‘Why?’, ‘What?’, ‘How?’ etc.
    3. phrases that require you to disagree or agree with a statement e.g. ‘Is it true that…?’, ‘Do you agree that…’, or ‘Did…’
  6. Write your answers as legibly as you can. Do not waste time using correction fluid. Simply cross out any errors as neatly as possible and carry on writing.
  7. Proofread your answers and correct any errors you find.
  8. If you cannot answer a question skip it and go on to the next one. You can always return to this question later.
  9. Use positive reinforcement for yourself. You must acknowledge that you have done your best and that you are doing your best!
