Believe it or not, Transition year is nearly over and it's time to face the music and bring your heads back into the books. Here are a few helpful tips on getting back into the study habit.
1) Find your learning style: People process information in different ways.Classic studying, which is reading straight from a book and writing notes works for some people. For others they need to listen to a recording of the information they need to learn. Find a learning style that works for you. Your studies will then flow by smoothly.
2) Invest in colourful stationery: This will not only brighten up your notes, but your brain will associate the colour of the notes with a certain subject or section you learned, making you more likely to remember the information.
3) Create a study timetable: If you organise your time into regular 20 minute study sessions instead of 6 hour monstrosities to prevent cramming in information and allow time for much needed breaks.
4) Take regular breaks: Taking a break such as listening to music, exercise and reading allows you to process all the information you have studied over your study session.
