  • Do you know your learning style?  If not, ask us and we’ll recommend a quick online test that will identify your style and suggest the best ways for you to revise.
  • Take regular breaks. Scientifically proven – you need to have a break every 25-30 minutes but time your breaks and don’t get distracted by ‘social media.’
  • Eat well and get plenty of sleep.  Turn off your screens an hour before you sleep and try to get 8 hours.
  • Plan in some ‘you’ time.
  • Reward good study time.
  • Have you got a personal goal?  Sometimes this can help to motivate you but it can also seem like a very distant dream.  Just deal with the present and do your best.  It’s not a competition or a race.
  • Attend clinics and ask teachers if you are struggling with a topic.
