Luck is preparation waiting for an opportunity
Observer 14th Jan 2014
'The body releases large amounts of the stress hormone known as cortisol during times of stress. Studies have shown that cortisol impairs the speed of memory retrieval in humans.
Nutritional biochemist Shawn Talbott’s research shows that there is 50 per cent more cortisol in the blood stream if an individual has six hours' sleep instead of the recommended eight hours'
BBC - 18th April 2012
The researchers observed 447 psychology students at the University of East London - 71 were in their foundation year, 225 were first-years and 151 were in their second year.
Just 25% of the 447 students entered the exam hall with a bottle of water.
Of these, the more mature students (those in their second year of degree study) were more likely to bring in water - 31% did so compared with 21% of foundation year and first-year students.
After taking students' academic ability into account, by examining coursework grades, the researchers found foundation students who drank water could expect to see grades improved by up to 10%.
– In my opinion this is the best method. Examiners are never that creative, the questions are very similar year on year.
– These give a good snap shot of the topic / subject.
LEARN & RECORD
–This isn’t just for MFL subjects. Recording puts the pressure on. The pressure in the exam is hard to recreate but this helps.
– Place post-its around your revision area.
CONDENSE DETAILED NOTES
–This means you are processing the information onto little cards. Selecting the key info means you are having to think carefully. It is more beneficial than copying.
– Get someone to test you just after you have learnt a topic. Then repeat the test the next day.
- Exam questions quickly move beyond level 1 knowledge and ask you to analyse and evaluate. Do you know the exam question command words - explain, analyse & evaluate?
WHAT TO REVISE
– Always cover the difficult topics first then come back to them nearer the exam. The temptation is to cover the material you know already. Don’t run away from the tricky material!
– An exam timetable is vital otherwise you will run out of time. The timetable should be specific, don’t just put History. Which event / period are you going to focus on?
– It can be a dangerous distraction (facebook etc). Don’t convince yourself you’ve been working if you’re chatting online at the same time. Revise without technology switched on.
– Having said that, there useful online resources that can help you check your understanding.
