it is often recommended to revise content immediately after learning it. how can you have time to memorise and write up notes for every subject, every day?

and complete homework

and work on major works

and practice questions

every. day.

Perhaps there is a need for a change in study strategy - are you sure it’s recommended to revise content immediately after learning it?

Revision is normally one of the later stages of effective study and is preceded by becoming familiar with content/concepts taught and homework/assessment completion.

We are looking at 2 possible solutions in this case:

1- Reallocate time for each of the things that you need to do according to difficulty/length of each.
2- Allocate more study time for your subjects in general.

Effective time management in your case is very important, and will be the reason behind your success. 😄

HAHAHAHAHAHA

Nah the Neymar pfp was temporary, I wanted to celebrate our victory against Bayern and how well he played.

I might be back with another one if we manage to beat Man City next 😆
psg played well but Bayern would have 100% won if they had lewandowski and gnabry up front

at this point, we dont even know if ucl is gonna go forward 😢

Yeah those injuries made Bayern really vulnerable and was ultimately the reason they lost but I think that if Neymar was just a bit luckier with his finishing, the second leg wouldn't have been as close.

What do you mean by ucl going forward?

Time management...




Don’t worry I won’t leave you with something as vague as that hahaha. In my opinion though, I think that’s more of a choice kind of thing and it boils down to how much work you have on your plate. With notes, I personally write my notes on the weekend and during the week I mainly focus on the content I’m learning and try to understand it as well as I can whilst also revising past topics. To be honest, writing notes during the week is a time waster as you’re spending roughly 20 minutes up to sometimes even an hour a day rewriting your notes from class when you could be more productive.
Hope this helps?

your tip about writing notes on the weekend is really helpful!! That is literally where i'm losing so much of my time because i feel the need to update them every day. the only issue is, if i wanted to actually revise throughout the week, how could i do so without the notes? hmmmm.... maybe i could write my notes on Saturday and revise them on Sunday? (my revision process consists of turning my notes into mindmaps and then doing LCWC).
then after school, i could focus on answering practice questions....

for e.g. i was just like, 'okay i might answer a practice question for modern now' - in order to study/revise
but to do that, i would need to have my notes down and ready

Then it's definitely a matter of managing your time more effectively. Etho_x's advice is pretty good in that regard.

In addition to that, you should avoid getting distracted.

but like even if i do manage my time effectively, i still don't see how there's time to write notes, study them and do practice questions for every subject that day

so then what do i do .... notes, revision or practice questions???? like i've been fine up all year so i don't know why i'm freaking out all of a sudden but i just feel like i'm missing something either way...

e.g.
say i have 3.5 hours to study
it takes me half an hour to make notes for each subject - that's like 3 hours gone - and i still didn't get practice questions in

i have read lots of conflicting information and now i'm confused, i just don't want to miss out on anything

would it be sufficient for me to write up class notes in the afternoon and then maybe revise/practice questions during the weekend? or am i missing the 'study' aspect.... does that count as study??

or should i write my notes and revise them after school and then practice questions on Saturday?

and then i could look over the rest of the year's content on sunday??

i'm just obsessing over the organizational aspect of study and what i should be specifically doing after school

Do you only get 3.5 hours to study? I see this as the main problem.

Regardless of the order in which you try to complete your tasks, I think that the time you're currently allocating will be the main limitation - it's just not enough, especially when considering the subjects that you're doing and the tasks you have to complete for each.

If you can't study for more than 3.5 hours, this sounds like a good solution.

-Go straight to the library to write my notes- 2-3 hours .
-home around 6pm, I do a past paper or two for each subject.
-Revision in the morning, 5-7am.
-Grind on Saturday, 8-10hrs.
-Rest on Sunday.

find what works for you, I also watch lecture videos or read my textbook in my spare time if I feel like it.

This may sound stupid, but when you say write up notes does that mean what you've learnt in each subject throughout the day and constantly updating them to study for exams?
