This is the first post of a series of posts on revising and preparing for exams.When it comes to revising for exams, nothing beats good old-fashioned hard work. But there are some things you can do to make the whole process easier and more productive. We’ve gathered all the best revision tips and techniques that we’ve shared with high school students over the years and we’ve put them in a series of posts to help you get started revising more effectively. Thank us later :).
Tip 1: Understand Your Learning Style
Although in reality, we all use a variation of different learning styles to process information, as students, we tend to favour one particular style over others. Knowing where your strengths lie will help you create the most effective study programme in preparation for your exam. In all, there are seven different styles that will help you learn how to study effectively:
- Visual (learning by seeing)
- Aural (listening)
- Verbal (talking things through)
- Physical (doing things first-hand)
- Logical (ordered learning)
- Social (group learning)
- Solitary (independent learning)
Knowing how you learn can also help you in the workplace. If you’re aware of what learning style works best for you, you’ll be able to learn on the job more effectively.
To help you identify your learning style, take this short quiz on the education planner website.
