THREE TOP TIPS FOR STUDENTS





1. ORGANISATION
Organisation is key. Like seriously, the amount of times I've gone to try and write and essay and my notes are splurging out of my file, onto the floor and I've even found some stray notes in the back of my car. Get a hole punch or get a pile of polly pockets and file everything away neatly as soon as you get it. It makes hell of a difference. It's so much easier to revise and do homework when your file is in order. Sticky notes or a Filofax is a fantastic way to note down homework and keep on top of what's due in when.

2. FURTHER READING
Last year I bought all the right textbooks and extra material but never bothered to read them or even pick them up off the shelf, to be completely honest I'm not even sure where they are. If you cover a topic in class then when you get home do some extra reading on the topic, make sure you fully understand it.

3. PRACTICE
Write notes, write more notes and keep writing notes. Write notes with notes, with textbooks and then just write notes with the information you can remember. Go online and get some past paper questions, practise every single one. Get as much practise as you can, do it with notes, without notes, with time constraints, without time constraints. Remember practise makes perfect.

I hope these three top tips for students really help you to maximise yourself academically, the key with exams is the more you put in the more you get out of it.

  3. I don't know how people get through university without being organised! I have far too many ringbinders sticky notes everywhere and my diary is full to burst!
