10 Study tips

    • Always divide the learning material into small portions. This way you will have more successes when you have completed a portion of the material.
    • Take regular breaks from learning: You can only concentrate for a maximum of 45 minutes, and anything you learn after that will no longer be “stored”.
    • Try to think of mnemonic devices as often as possible. For example, to remember the year: 7 5 3, Rome hatches from the egg. This will make it easier for you to recall what you have learned.
    • Use different colours for your notes!
    • Reward yourself when you have done something. This makes learning much more fun!
    • For example, write down vocabulary or formulas a few times.
    • Keep your workspace as tidy as possible. Anything that could distract you from learning has no place on your desk.
    • Say out loud what you need to learn.
    • If you are learning new vocabulary, it is best to memorise a whole sentence containing the word.
    • If you can’t remember something at all, write it down on a piece of paper and hang it up at home. This way, you will unconsciously read it over and over again and remember it more easily.
