Learning Support tip n°14

Revise for exams with friends – it’s more fun! Set a time limit for the session – 30 / 45 / 60 minutes. Agree to focus on one topic and switch off social media notifications. “Teach” each other the things you need to learn – if you can explain it, you have learnt it. Discuss and compare your understanding of a topic – what does this concept mean? Why is it important? How does it relate to other things we have studied in class? Etc. This type of deep thinking and process is a more effective way to learn than highlighting text from a class PowerPoint or textbook.
