How students can make the most of their time

How students can make the most of their time

  • Schedule your study session. If it is pre-planned it will be much more effective.
  • Be disciplined. Don’t run over time on certain subjects at the expense of others
  • Use shorthand notes, flashcards or Mindmaps and avoid going back to read text books
  • Study while you are fresh and don’t wait until you are nodding off to quit
  • Incorporate doing practical exam questions to test yourself as part of your study program. This can be a great confidence booster.  When attempting these questions only spend the amount of time that you are allowed in the exam on them. This means that you are realistically seeing what can be done in the given period and how, if necessary, you can improve your speed and accuracy for the real thing.
  • During the exams, allow yourself only the allotted time for each question and then move on. You will get more marks for attempting every question rather than getting just one or two perfect answers.
