Hello World!

sapna rev

While reading Morinn post , I realise  that its high time for me to start my revision as in 2 weeks i.e on 10 December, have exams...

Don’t know about you but when it comes to revision, am always lazy LOL

Always when have managed to this very will to go and revise then something more pleasant will tempt me like a nice movie on TV


or my sis will come in my room and will start talking like a parrot and my very bad lazy nature...


How I usually revise:

Mostly at night stopping at 23.30 as revision will put me KO really can’t sleep for some time and then wake up at 2 or 3am to revise (really need to sleep)


In the morning there is always the TV or my virtual pet on FB temptation; so revise for a very very few moments LOL (am a hopeless case i know: p)


Here are some tips on how to revise some teachers gave me and my class:

Chemistry teacher - Make a planning and a timetable on all subjects you have to revise


Chemistry teacher As you study, jot the main ideas (in your own words) on some paper this help you in reminding key words and things


Psychology lecturer – always take a pause of 5-10 mins as you just can’t keep revising and over absorbing things


Picture what you are learning nonstop as a dense traffic where all will be jammed and will be waiting for their turn to be absorbed (now if you are a geek or a genius: p)


The pause will help for allowing fluidity in your brain for better assimilation


My advice: your mind should not be restless and preoccupied thinking of other things


Adopt the zen attitude (i usually listen to ambient music like Enya )


this helps me to calm down and tranquilize my mind and self or do something that usually help you to relax (some like to study while watching TV or listening to music)


That’s some few tips I got....hope they will kinda help you...

To all those who have exams and are going through revision: all the best

What i used to do is go through all the notes, and highlight the important parts. Then read it all again and write down a summary. Then the next day (it took me a 2 day span for a semester module), I'd go only through the summary. The day of the exam, I tried to sum up the whole module in one long (very long at times) sentence. Not the best idea, but it paid off in the end.

In a way your revision tactic kinda good cos you are assimilating what you revising in your own words and think its easier to remember it then...thanks for sharing this tip
