STUDY SKILLS


In the run up to your exams, you must adopt a more disciplined attitude.
Know when your exams are by checking your planner, and study a little every day.

Your performance on the exam is vital to your success- tests count the most towards your grade.

Look at tests positively and as an opportunity to demonstrate your understanding.

COUNTDOWN to the EXAMS

Use a worksheet as a quiz
by covering over the answers and re-doing it
Look over old quizzes
and try to figure out why you're making mistakes
Look over the
returned assignments
for the unit
Answer study guide questions
Tell someone else what the topic is about
Look up the parts of the assignments that you didn't understand the first time ;
use textbook or online
tutorials like Khan Academy
When do you study?
How often?
What about the other things you do?

Write down :
The fixed things that you have to do-
“ROCK PRIORITIES”
- Studying/Homework
Time you have no control over – the “musts”

Activities where you have a choice of the “options"

Remember procrastination
(putting things off)
is an obstacle to your goals.

PRIORITIZING



Studying has 3 parts

Organizing subject matter efficiently-

Prioritize assignments-
HARDEST FIRST!

Getting ongoing day- to- day work and assignments done-

DO YOUR HOMEWORK!

Researching and revising work for exams-
Studying minutes every day for upcoming tests!

STUDY SESSIONS

Study sessions just don’t happen when you feel like doing them.

They need to be scheduled on an organized timetable.

Your study timetable should rule your life.
STUDY TIMETABLE



Plan a Definite Study Time Don’t Cram for Hours the
and Place for Each Day Night Before a Test

Come to School. Be on time.
You can't learn if you are not at school
Pay Attention in Class
Take Good Notes
Stay on Task with Your Chromebook


STUDY SKILLS Basics

Ask someone to quiz you
Read; reread; and
highlight your notes
Summarize; read your notes;
read your notes out loud (this helps with memory)
Outline
or make a graphic version of written work (lists, columns, Venn diagrams, etc.)
Quiz yourself
Practice with flashcards
; free digital flashcard programs like Quizlet and StudyStack are available to use with your Chromebook
Write memory work
over and over until you feel confident

Develop
Effective Methods

You can also
use travel time
to and from school for:
Planning or reviewing notes
Listening to recorded summaries or points on an MP3 player

Then when you arrive home, it is much easier to get down to study

You are psyched up

Your purpose and task are set

You can apply yourself immediately


Don’t make study sessions too long

Drink some water before you start

Break tasks down into smaller manageable ones

Do daily summaries of work covered in class in your own words under Main Points

Set a task to achieve for each session

Don’t study after 11:00 pm

Divide time equally between subjects-
Start with hardest first

Revise your study timetable – things change

Stick to it !



SOME TIPS



Keep an Organized Binder

Use Your FMS Planner or Chromebook Google Calendar to Record Assignments

Ask Questions in Class

Participate in Group Discussions


Remember it is important to eat healthy and sleep well by
turning off electronic devices; tv, laptop, cell phone

Put yourself first – it is an important time for you – try to
talk to family about how they can make studying a little
easier for you, e.g. by agreeing times when you can
have your own space,
when they will try to be a bit quieter
around the house and when you would
rather not be disturbed

TAKE BREAKS AND DO THINGS YOU
ENJOY AND HELP YOU RELAX

Reminders

Social Life :
Put this on hold if necessary
Give up parties, nights out etc.
Plan your rewards that you will give yourself after the exams


Exercise :
Do something active like walk or jog daily to reduce and to relieve pressure and stress

It clears the mind and encourages positive thoughts

The following are characteristics of a successful student. Develop these in yourself.

Ask questions


Discuss topics with your peers


If you don’t understand
something, speak up

INDEPENDENT LEARNERS



Students still believe in luck when it comes to grades.

They think kids get good grades because teachers like them.

They believe that the “smart kids” will get the good grades.

They believe that “only poor students have to
study and that working for something is
somehow a badge of dishonor.”
