hello it's Ruby and today I'm going to finally be sharing with you a university morning routine this video has been so highly requested and I'm sorry I'm only just getting around to filming it so I have actually not been sleeping very well recently so I'm waking up a little later than usual instead of 6 which is the ideal time I'd like to wake up I usually end up waking up at 7:00 7:30 since I have an 8:30 this morning I am waking up at 7 and the first thing I will go and do is put on my bed jacket I just love how old-fashioned it is and my slippers are from Bowden I've had these for about four or five years now then I will put on some classical music on Spotify and I will make my bed I really love to make my bed first thing in the morning because it just starts my day off in a really good foot then I would do 40 sit-ups this is just a good way for me to get my body moving in the morning I personally find it's a really good way to start my day and then I will pick up my hot water for tools and go and fill them up because I get very very cold and it is freezing in England at the moment so this is an essential part of my morning and at the same time whilst I'm waiting for the kettle to boil I will wash my hands and then get started but doing some washing up I usually leave some of my washing up from the night before from dinner then I will just fill up a mason jar with cold water and I will drink a whole glass of this and I will also fill up another glass to bring to my bedroom and Here I am filling up my gorgeous head with hot water I honestly love this hot water bottle so much when I'm back in my room I will choose what I'm going to wear today and since it was really cold I decided I was actually gonna wear a thermal vest underneath my jumper today it was it was thermals weather then I will head to the bathroom to brush my teeth because of course you always have to brush your teeth in the morning and I also read at the same time as doing this but I didn't film any clips of that so the next thing I like to do is use this drops of youth body shop facial exfoliator I've been using this for two three years it's one of only two products that I've faced products that I use and I would really recommend it and I will also have a cold shower because I think it's a really great way to wake you up and get you ready for the day hey Google can you get me my flash news briefing so then I will go put on my Google home to get me the news whilst I open the windows to finally let some daylight in by the way if you're wondering today I am wearing this jumper from Bowden and these trousers from Miss patina with a thermal vest underneath then I will go do my hair and get ready and I'm really sorry for this angle I thought you could see more of my face when you actually can I will just put some bobby pins into my head to keep my fringe tone growing out off my face and I also like to put on some face cream this is the second face product I use I will usually put on some concealer as well then I will head to the kitchen to get some breakfast and the first thing I like to do is just rinse out my water bottles or filling it up for my lectures and seminars this is such an important thing to bring to classes I think staying hydrated when you're learning is so important and I find I concentrate so much better when I have got a water bottle with me so this morning for breakfast I decided to have a yogurt Bowl so I am using this out Pro coconut yogurt with some frozen mango some fruits and berries and some bananas and peanut butter I just love yogurt bowls they are so delicious and really refreshing as well so then I would just go put my shoes on put my key on and put my coat on because as I've said it is very cold and actually a wonder I'm not wearing my ski jacket today because I usually won't waste ski jacket then I will just consult this list that I have which details all of the things that I should bring Who campus with me depending whatever the week it is so since it's Friday I did packed my laptop and attach that we had to read that week and then I just packed my bag and head to campus so after my 8:30 seminar that finishes at 10:30 this particular day I did go to the gym before heading back home and this is just because I had a social this evening so I was going to miss trampolining and I still wanted to get some exercise so I went to the gym to the 11:30 and then I had it back to my room and did some studying so thank you so much for watching today's video I hope that you enjoyed it and I hope that you have a productive you

Today I’m sharing my university/college study routine…my process is definitely nothing revolutionary, but I did try and include some tips and advice throughout the video that will hopefully help you out next time you’re stressed for a final (I’ll probably need to rewatch this video once I’m back in “study-mode” because even I sometimes need things put into perspective, haha :P) Hope you enjoy the video!

大家好! 今天的视频非常特别,因为它
是我最早拍摄的视频之一 YouTube和成千上万的人投票赞成
我从头开始重做它。 因为我仍然发誓这些技巧,大多数
画外音将记录在同一个 方式,但我给这些方法的方法
有点不同。 1。 每天将家庭作业和课程融入您的行列
规划师 – 这将给你一个整体 瞥一下你的一周将是怎样的
你需要花多少时间学习 会议! 2。 颜色坐标类 – 无论如何,
你的计划者,你的教科书或活页夹,挑选 每个班级的独特颜色和解决方法
这种颜色的色调变得更有条理! 3。 制作自己的教学大纲 – 如果你的教授
不为您的班级提供课程提纲, 在学年之前尝试制作一个
围绕你给定的教科书或其他给定的 材料。 4。 制作学习指南 – 制作学习指南
你的教学大纲和每个主题之前画两个 盒子:一个用于中间测试,一个用于最终测试
测试。 当您进行其中一项测试时,请检查
你完成学习后的盒子 这一章你不会错过任何东西! 5。 始终参考您的材料 – 大多数
有时,我们的学生在课堂上工作 笔记,教科书和教学大纲。 因为我们在这里得到一小部分信息
并且重要的是要参考每一个 所有材料中的页面,以便您可以
无需快速访问您的信息 通过页面无休止地翻转! 6。 在附近放置仪表板 – 无论何时使用
笔记本电脑或活页夹,打开仪表板 第一页有便利贴,所以你可以
快速涂抹任何问题,作业或 页码。 当你回到家时,你只需要打开你的家
仪表板并参加这些笔记。 7。 打印任何测试,练习和考试
找到 – 把它们放在你的活页夹的最后。 这些都是考试前练习的完美之选
和测试,因为他们真的反映了什么 你会受到考验。 为截止日期设置闹钟并开始
在那些工作! 8。 凝聚 – 组织消失时
你有太多的东西。 在您的计划中与多个计划者合作
生活会使一切变得混乱。 如果你认为你需要第二个计划者因为
你没有足够的空间来写 第一个,这是因为你没有
有空的时间。 不要欺骗自己,设定可实现的目标! 9。 自定义教科书 – 大多数时候,
教科书是信息的正式书籍 很难得到。 制作自己的标签并撰写每一章
在他们身上,所以他们坚持 – 标记任何图表, 表格或图形。 一切都需要难以置信! 10在决赛前打印特殊规划表:
按章节和/或组织学习 决赛前的主题非常重要
因为它可以让你整理时间 你专注于每个科目,
研究会议和时间管理 11。 至少保存一个下午或一个早晨
一周的密集学习。 这些是你的“生命保护” – 当你
得到如此丰富的家庭作业和项目 你不能把它们融入你的日常生活中
学术常规,一个免费下午组织 你的学校生活真的会派上用场! 预约自己! 12。 提前做好准备 – 尽管大多数教授
可能不会要求你提前准备课程, 如果你有办法,那就继续吧。 抓一张纸,并对章节进行总结
你的班级将是关于。 撰写主要主题和关键信息
并把这个指南带到课堂上。 当你的教授重复之前的研究
信息,你将能够理解 一切都好多了! 13。 永远不要留下任何东西 – 即使你
有一个更轻松的课程,教授 不要求作业或任何辅助项目,
不要让那个骗你! 守纪律,成为自己的教授! 制作自己的项目并学习一切
你可以这样,你可以钉在那些决赛 他们到了。 14。 写下你的问题 – 大部分时间,
在沉重的学习环节中,我们想出了 大量的问题,有时我们只是离开
他们落后了。 将它们写在仪表板或小型仪表中
笔记本并问你的教授(个人 或通过电子邮件)。 你也可以在facebook上问你的同学
为此目的创建的小组! 15。 设置一个闹钟并奖励自己 – 甚至
如果你在整个下午学习你的 如果你不这样做,学习将毫无意义
定期休息。 设置一小时/一小时的闹钟
一半,然后休息15分钟。 永远不要超过2个小时的学习! 即使你没有注意到,你也会得到更少
并且不太专注。 16。 。列出清单 – 在每次学习之前
我喜欢抓住记事本并写下所有内容 在我的会话结束之前我需要做的事情:
我需要阅读的章节,我需要的页面 通过我需要完成的作业。 有时我甚至会写这些列表
在大学里,我会有更多的决心 我回到家后完成这些任务。 17首先研究最无趣的事情。 总是有类或项目
我们最不喜欢 – 那些就是那些 我们需要先解决。 你将开始集中学习,
这将让你完成最糟糕的任务 快点。 18打印,打印,打印。 尝试打印你能做到的一切,永远不要
从你的电脑学习。 随时打印PDF文件
让你更专注,突出和 写一些笔记
在边缘。 你可以随身携带这些
甚至将它们变成未来的小指南 班! 19。 如果你提前完成,不要退出。 也许是你为学习而节省的时间
会议在你面前走到尽头 有计划。 这并不意味着你应该停下来
现在 – 花点时间来回顾一下你的情况 到目前为止学习或准备其他课程
时间! 20。 在有组织的空间学习 – 让你的
自己的学习角落 – 带给你一切 将需要,从教科书,粘合剂和笔记本,
到一杯咖啡和你的电脑。 把它们整齐地放在你的桌子上
一切都在眼前。 放一些柔和的背景音乐(链接下来

nokey seize the day chinny chin rub liver net kitty lay during it I did it to date oh the perfect hey guys it is one day as of today Tuesday it's Tuesday today I've been up for a while and I'm just like drinking my smoothie now I'm still in black jumpers it's just gonna be another day in my life trying to get productive doing revision getting stuff done and yeah I hope you enjoy it and I just wanted to save movies it might not sound like a breakfast I get that but my smoothies are thick you know the thick not watery and it's got a lot of stuff jam-packed in it you know it's a fuel my date oh hey Disick got two in it burn it Oh cat hair gets everywhere just thought I'd mention that but if you guys don't want smoothies in the morning like you don't have to have some of these just cuz I have two movies I like all of my smoothies I think you know that by now Bob this is just my way to start the day so let's go let's see what Bali and Java are doing buddy oh you're sitting down good girls assuming they're cute faces no look at you what you doing what's going on it's a confused okay we're zoom back out now they just like syrup engine and trying to catch it but clearly they're not gonna get the pigeon oh so I'm just doing we'll talk to you today well I'm like trying to learn some of the stuff on autopsy so I started off like going through what I thought I knew I've been doing some full lash cards here and then I've also been like doing some reading on these stuff I haven't really read about the lecture notes were a bit like kitten mess so I was like Anita worried about this stuff because it just didn't make sense what does make sense do it just wasn't very coherent if it's all kind of bitty and it's not really put together and I'm very nice order so I just have to do some reading and actually make it fit logically in my head that make sense so that's why I'm currently doing I'm actually just gonna take a break and do some emails I think yeah I'm like oh this shouldn't take very long but you know things just always take longer than you expect and water where's my water I don't know I'm out for us today that she don't even know when is she not asleep where are the bananas i want a banana so did a lot more than emails so there's not some dates in my diary for next time and some graduation stuff take some stuff off my to-do list i have these at the moment which are set in Kauai certain other night it but local phone number and they're like hey fever thing and used to use like the rats are done and get it from the doctor but I just wanted to find control all right you know naturally I found cassette in and it's got vitamin C which currently like Idaho does it happy absorb that sometimes fashion um I actually it touchwood there was a knife with wood on it doesn't actually seem that bad this year I think it's cause I've started it kind of early normally I wait for the symptoms or like the symptoms stop and then I start taking it which isn't the best way to do it guys through foam milk uh she's here hi let me come to see me you know you want to I'm gonna make me all Harry I'm gonna need a banana tuck-in Oh hold tight Millie it's you it just fits me walk down oh my god she does this all the time she uses like my books as some obstacle course and then she gets on my windowsill you're gonna stare out the window she stares at Bali and Java and gives them like a resting bitchface show it to me Minnie Oh where's your resting bitchface are you gonna come she wants to and he come and said only be careful daddy no not that she's like yes yes okay so I really don't understand why she does that she like rests her head on my arm oh you're not gonna do it now cuz his son coffee isn't it she'll rest her chin on my arm and then when I'm typing it's like moving an eye chin flat but she still seems to lie there such a strange cat Banjara look at that picture fish it's okay now I'm messed up now Milkha we're gonna have lunch longer I need food save that close that uh right okay uh how long is this little thing that I was gonna read so long hmm I'm like I'll skim through the paper and I didn't end up skimming through it ever end up reading the whole thing and it's just like why did I do bet I mentioned this in my last video my Q&A I normally read reviews most of the time just because they give you like a general overview but they're just so long sometimes I'm this so detailed so ya don't wanna read that maybe I might doing something else after lunch I might be going to doing to you as my favorite thing they're actually not that bad once you get into them I just need to actually learn it so we might do some actual learning instead of note-taking this afternoon yeah we'll do that hey she's falling asleep slowly Denman mystical have some lunch now what's the need to like do you have myself when mom sees me like this she's literally oh my gosh my abs abs hurts so much because the other day my brother gave me just a block oh because he's like doing like a personal training apprenticeship thing so he's gonna be called personal trainer maybe and yeah we did I work on oh my gosh my abs hurt so much and we did it the other day like two days ago actually doing normally do a properly or I just never do it enough so I never really feel there and oh wow there's so painful okay so I've come downstairs my Matthew outside no one else in the house so I've just come downstairs it's pretty quiet down here so I'm gonna work here just to change up the scenery and I'm changing up why I'm doing as I said so I'm gonna try and learn my notes and everything to do with like she was genome-wide Association study I seem to have the information in a place where I can find it so like my notes and everything I just need to learn it so I'm gonna do a learning session don't know what to call it I'm just gonna try it and get it in my brain I'm not making notes I'm just gonna be like learning it and putting things into flashcards so the first thing that I do if I'm trying to learn some information is I tend to just take 15 minutes or something I've got a timer on and see why I remember what do I know without pamphlet looking anything sometimes it's quite successful I don't know how successful we're gonna meet today with the GU hours cuz I don't know how much I'm gonna actually know oh my head hurts I think it's cuz I did a lot of writing yesterday ah why anyway okay 15 minutes is now over we have some ideas of what's going on we're now I'm just gonna actually go through my notes when I'm adding information I don't try and be too ambitious I say that but it's easier said than done sometimes I like pick up a whole folder like you're learning all that it's just like no that's just not gonna happen when I go through it this is when I surf for things in my nose like scribble things alongside and then I transfer things to flashcards I don't really know there's no sort of like set rules with flashcards I just kind of put the things in there quite important and I know that's like how do you know what's important or another way to do it is to like put the things in that you just never normally remember they're my two kind of rules I do like things I do so I put in things that hey I'm not gonna remember or be I think a quite important or quite key because there are things that you want to put in like essays or answers to questions I don't know what's worse this I don't know how well you're gonna hear me because there's a road like that but I'm walking to the gym like I didn't manage to learn well did you ask stuff but I feel like when I try and learn something in detail I can't do it very quickly yeah when I want to learn something in detail and learn it thoroughly you'll take a fair bit of time and you've got to be patient with it it takes a lot of repetition and the more you do it the more familiar you're gonna become with the notes and ya don't currently warm to the gym and when I'm walking I tend to go through things in my head and like speak to myself this really helps of you talk about things where you go through it in your head and yeah I'm just thinking I'm talking to myself as what's going on right now she'll back from the gym just walked back ate my a-hole I hope feeling Bobby and Java are outside someone oh my gosh they didn't okay that was a bad idea bad idea they just jumped and nearly knocked me over hey hey stop it huh good job good girl she just licks all the time I don't understand why she does this don't you just lick it I tell you excuse me that's my jacket get down they still jump up quite but not gonna lie buddy ladies huh look at that tails they get to run around the whole garden now which they really enjoy memory was also so bad that's why I'm going on a walk with them you just can't let them off because they just won't come back and because there's two of them they just both run off that kind of a nightmare what are you doing they're just like sniffing e-everything yes hey girl Java still eats her food she literally poos turns around and eat sir and it's just like girl are you that hungry I don't even know and she's Bali's as well so yeah and then she looked she and it's just like okay that's lovely hey jobs oh yeah you like up there do you like it sit sit sit sit Trevor say you don't sit where's your sister Bali's the best up whole Freddy Freddy sit ready ready Freddy sit good girl poor oh good girl you don't eat your poo do you know you do though hey Java what do you do you eat your poop mom has an obsession with pulling trees down that's what she's doing right now like Mama's in the garden for hours pulling down the trees does anybody else's mom love to pull down trees my head hurt in that type on when I'm like trying to learn something I make up the most ridiculous things like I make up the acronyms or whatever and just do release anything I'm gonna give you an example it's like a tiny detail and in the grand scheme of things it's pretty irrelevant but I want to remember you to remember us basically a little random letters and numbers which actually makes sense but won't probably to you guys so I determine but HLA DRB one asterisk 0 3 so I'm just basically gonna make up something ridiculous they're just a little bit in my head now it's gonna be like Dr I'm just gonna have to remember deal and then be like bananas the one in one smoothie I have three bananas so it's patient's a dr b four bananas in one smoothie asterisk there are three I have three banana than one smoothie and I'm gonna hopefully remember that I make up silly things like this that's fun but this time of the day my photos are literally just everywhere Oh some sucks on the floor and just like chuck everything everywhere and about the gym I didn't fill my workout because I was thinking that I might start putting them on Instagram I think that might just be easier for like you guys instead of having to watch their video if you'd like her thumbs up whatever um yeah I just go back and I finished the g1z stuff and I think isn't my hair tonight I'll have to obviously repeat it but I'm not thinking you know guys like G wise if question comes up in the exam and it's nice like my answer it you think energy was oh the library dance this is like what are you doing when you just got that crazy whoa interesting emails I think I'm like getting go downstairs and help mom make food you

Hello Socratica Friends! We’re here to help you be a Great Student.
In this episode, we learn about the best way to use FLASH CARDS.

Flash cards are a great tool to use anytime you need to memorize facts, fast. They’re great for drilling vocabulary terms, learning dates in history…so many uses. The best thing about flash cards is that they help you figure out what you know, and what you don’t know. And although this may be uncomfortable, the best way to master a subject is to focus on what you DON’T know!

In this video, we’ll show you how we use flash cards, using an important technique known as “spaced repetition.” Basically, don’t try to cram in all your studying in one go! Make sure you break it up over a couple of days at least, with breaks in between. Try using flashcards following the Pomodoro method! Two fantastic techniques working together to help you be a Great Student.

We recommend making flashcards the old fashioned way – with pen and paper, but if you’d like to use an app on your phone, we like Anki. Do you have a different method of studying with flash cards? Let us know what are your favourite study tips in the comments!

hello my Socratic of friends we're here to help you be a great student today we're going to show you how to use flashcards you can use this method when you have to memorize a lot of facts fast it's great for vocabulary terms especially if you're learning a second language or for dates and other facts from history really almost anything flashcards are not expensive and you can take them anywhere the beauty of flashcards is that you quickly find out what you know and what you don't know and the way to be really efficient and successful at studying is to focus on what you don't know the other great thing about flashcards is that you can study them for a short amount of time after about 20 to 30 minutes of studying your brain gets really tired and you need a break so plan on studying with your flashcards for about 20 minutes take a five-minute break and then study some more wait a day and then study them again this technique is called spaced repetition and it's one of the most effective ways to study there are some online flashcard programs you can use my favorite right now is Anki but there are many others and the best ones use spaced repetition you should check those out because you might find it more convenient to work on your computer or your phone there's something to be said for writing out flashcards however it's a little extra step that can help things stick in your brain so we are going to focus on real-world analog flashcards as opposed to digital flashcards first you should prepare your flashcards we bought some 3 by 5 cards but they're really bigger than we need and we don't want to waste money in paper so we're going to cut them in half if you have a paper cutter that makes this much easier but we don't so we're just using scissors we like to color code our flashcards to make it easier to find the battery when a study this is useful if you're studying several subjects or you might want one set of flashcards for each chapter of your textbook you can buy different colored flashcards or you can use a pen to paint one side of the flashcard so you can quickly identify a stack of them we're using pink for Japanese like cherry blossoms and blue for math not that math makes you blue math is awesome and everyone should study it we use one card per term that's important on one side right the term you want to remember and on the other side write a very brief definition it's best if this is in your own words rather than copied word-for-word from the textbook takes the time to think about what the definition really means and then write a simplified version on your flashcard it's a good idea to check with a friend at this point to make sure you didn't oversimplify the definition now let's practice using our flashcards pick which side you want to test I usually start by looking at the definition and testing to see if I remember the specific term go through all the cards once testing yourself with each card read the definition and before you turn the card over try to save the term you can do this out loud if you're in private or to yourself if you're in the library or some other place where you need to be quiet now you have to be very honest with yourself did you get it completely right or were you a little bit wrong if you were even a little bit wrong put it in the don't know pile but if you got it right put it in the I know that pile take a little break walk around drink some water make sure you keep your sessions to 30 minutes or less after a 5 minute break you're ready for the next step take all the cards in the don't know pile shuffle them and go through them again I bet this time you'll have fewer flashcards you don't know take another very short break and then go through the don't knows again by now you will probably be down to just a few cards what should you do to remember those last few cards you need to have a way to follow up on what you don't know try reading the term and the definition out loud and then try writing a sentence using the term on that card if that still doesn't do the trick try rereading that section of your textbook or your notes from class wait a day or two and then go through all of the cards again this time test yourself on the other side look at the term and test to see if you remember the definition make sure you shuffle the cards first so you don't accidentally remember the terms in order that can happen did any cards show back up and your don't know pile you'll need to follow up with those cards that you miss read them out loud and write a sentence using the term it's really great if you can have a friend quiz you with your flashcards it's easy to trick yourself into saying yeah yeah I knew that but if you didn't get it right away you only sort of know it on a test you need to know it cold to summarize color code your flashcards right in your own words one term and one definition per card test yourself on all the cards putting them in two piles yes or no take a short break retest yourself on the cards you missed follow up on those cards in some way don't forget this step the next day test yourself on all the cards in the other direction take a short break retest yourself on the ones you miss follow up on those cards remember it's up to you to make sure you really know your stuff when you go into a test pay attention in class reading your textbook and doing your homework are all important but using flashcards to test your memory is also an essential part of being a great student want to help us make more great videos join the Socratic

Thomas Farmarkis talks to Rowan Kunz from Study TV about how to study for Economics, including writing notes, keeping up with current economic news, and essay writing.

Thomas and Rowan discuss the following study tips:

– How to construct notes for Economics
– The importance of staying up to date with current news
– Integrating relevant case studies into notes
– How to memorize information
– Essay writing guidance

Thomas recently completed his Higher School Certificate (HSC) in NSW, where he achieved an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank of 99.95, placing him in the top 49 students out 66,000 students in the state.

Thomas also achieved a number of state rankings including, 1st in Legal Studies out of 8,800 students, 9th in Economics out of 6,200 students, 9th in Modern History out of 10,000 students, and 6th in History Extension out of 2,500 students.

Thomas is currently studying a Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Law at the University of Sydney.

For weekly videos and interviews with top students who reveal how they achieved their amazing academic success head over to:

New video updates will be released twice a week across the year – so next time you feel like procrastinating, do so productively by watching a Study TV episode!

you know how do you stay for economics okay I quite enjoyed economics because it was a completely new subject it was the science of business and I thought it was pretty cool you'd be doing a subject that will teach you to make money one day I quite like that that's probably alemannic of some strange personality traits but anyway it's a good son because everyone's on a little playing field my advice would be actually for a lot of students that I don't want to peak-to-peak economics because a lot of people haven't done before it's a level playing field and of course the scaling is good so that's an added bonus of and plus it's an interesting subject coming back to your question the way I study for economics is I had a weekly subscription to The Economist and that's really what economics is about disease they called the dismal science for a reference the dismal science because the conditions economic conditions and assumptions are always changing it's a it's a social science that is in constant flux and what that means is the people who are the best economists are the ones who can relate it to the modern world on a constant basis and I think will help me I always quite surprised how well are performed in economics I think what helped me in relation to other students they have a really strong understanding of economics in in its current context I read the paper every day I read The Economist every week I had a real real attention to to contemporary economic issues and I put those into my essay and I thought that really differentiated me from the other students because I think that's that's what they had in mind when they were designing to the course they allow you to understand that the commercial world and as as it exists so now that that was tells many similar skills in terms of you know say motor cloud and everything but this is your other notes failure wow that was that was the major point of difference that all try and keep abreast of current you descent did you on a regular basis then integrate you know what will reinforce any economists have a little temperature t2 and yet yeah yeah so what you'd say let's say okay so I'll give you an example oh there's one before that asked you talked about the globalization of financial markets I don't think you can talk about the globalization of financial markets with any sort of authority unless you talk about global financial crisis have a general idea how it happened and it may be a couple of key statistics here and there saying I guess attesting to the limits of financial globalization little things like that and when you're talking about when you're talking about labor laws obviously they have a pretty good understanding what's currently happening with the labor regulations or not with a couple of current government's putting fiscal policy obviously I think if you're an economic student you don't watch budget night on TV and the ABC kill yourself as boring as that they sell the things like that is that does that make sense yes there's a saying on fiscal policy you should also have all the current stats to back it up and I think most teachers do that in life it's a case of going out there and having a genuine interest in the drug use and and try to find some what you think is an interesting animal user yeah okay and so you're rewriting it in you know so as you're you saying hey wait a minute disconnects to get what I so you know sort of an answer this topic say globalization or trade and God will call me whatever it may be and then you're speaking out younger to them get away to learn and short and memorize it then what are you doing for economics you're doing practice papers economic hast paid business essays what are you did in here the data with economics it's a little bit like chemistry in that you can be really good at the subject but just completely Bob out because you don't know how to see the actual paper it is actually quite a difficult paper relative to the other subjects Heidi I will practice lots of multiple-choice which I think you can get online website whatever it is lots of multiple-choice over quite tricky multiple-choice and it was really a case of going through doing as many as possible if you can learn more as I said the more you didn't do and they do come up they repeat questions all the time the more you did the better you got at them the far part I found really tricky and I remember in our trials we just get smashed like it would be March 30 out of 40 28 out of 40 they would be the best backs they clashed all the short answers because in economics the way to mark is if you don't hit the nail and they won't review the marks and they've got this strange stranger versions of the fact that if you write over the lines they just won't market they want you to save in line so in addition to actually developing small handwriting you need to be able to be as concise as possible I mean it's the subject that summons studies how to be efficient they want you to write efficiently as well which makes sense in hindsight but I will practice heaps and heaps of short answer questions every Friday between like please stay in class whom just do short answer questions because they they they required so it was a real skill that you had to acquire but if anything my advice to economic students would be to practice that skill it actually has application to other subjects I mean runnin concise and on subject often you know it helps you with other subjects as well but in economics in particular if you don't get to the point they're just looking for an excuse to they own you I felt so thankful yeah so then you suggest would be to do a pollutant loads of short answer question yet I have a mine in particular yeah absolutely get feedback so I gather you will get feedback each week you don't cost attentional and I'm gonna damage the skipper in a better as it has practicing that we found that in addition to mastering the content every week because you were applying it to an exam situation doing doing short answer questions had a measurable benefit for my other essay writing subjects as well okay and what about the essay for economics did you do sort of practice essays throughout the year or is it again more just a matter or really immersing yourself on learning the content accommodation of a combination but during an occasional practice that says because once inner they are marked quite rigorously though that was my understanding of it our Thomas would only be seventeen over twenty for the Trop which is not bad but admittedly not great either so so do lots of practice that says throughout even in the lead up just make sure you have a broad understanding because will find that the economics and say as of late my experience was that were more quite specific and if you didn't have a good understanding of all the we were in real trouble when they asked you a question on on your changes in the indian global financial markets and everyone really struggle with that or in particular environmental questions which was that part of the course that a lot of economic students would ignore because they didn't really think it was economics when that comes up over the paper they have really really powerful regrets yeah okay so it was a matter of doing essays but still really focusing on that really specific understanding

Don’t have enough time?
In this video, I talk about how to cram study for a test and pass. If you are taking a test and find yourself studying the night before, this is the video to help you out! Cram studying for tests is very common and if you study properly, you can still do very well on the examination! I have learned these hacks over the years from my own experience as well as from research I have read.
Disclaimer: I am in no way saying that cram studying is a healthy study habit. To effectively learn content, a more regular and structured study approach (i.e. starting weeks before an exam) is far more beneficial. A+ Exam tips 🙂

what's going on guys welcome back to the channel if you found this video ads are you're in a little bit of a predicament you have a big exam or some kind of coup is some kind of test tomorrow or later today or whenever and you did not study for it yet so you're cramming cramming you know we've all heard about it you know we do it all the time I have done it so many times and I've learned that there is a right way to cram study and honestly I've cram study for so many exams that a lot of them if you do it the right way and you study really really effectively for only a few hours you can outperform people that have studied for a weeks if they don't do it right because there are certain ways that science has proven people best commit items to memory and when you follow these methods as I'm going to show you in this video your exam scores will go through the roof compared to what they otherwise would have been if you know so many people you're just sitting there you're frustrated you're you're stressed you're not getting what you need to out of it but like I said if you follow these techniques your exam score will be way better than it would have otherwise so be sure to stick around for the rest of this video and at the end I have a couple bonus tips for you guys on how to better commit items to your memory as well as how to study so definitely be sure to stick around for the rest of this video let's get to it so what's going on guys I'm Michael Bryan this is my channel on college and career advice so if you're interested in college or a career advice maybe you're in high school you're in college you just got out of college you're looking for jobs definitely be sure to subscribe to my channel I have lots of great videos that I think are really helpful for you guys a lot like this one coming up in the near future and ones I've already made so go check it out right now I have links and description to other of my videos let's get to this video I know you guys don't have a lot of time you're probably really pressed for this this studying right now so this video I'm going to tell you how to study for the exam so there are six steps that I found from my own experience as well as from other research from scientific studies out there that really show what is the best way to study and of course this will change from person to person so if you have another idea maybe you like notecards or something like that please comment below and let me know what you think your favorite way to study is I'd love to hear at all so like I said I've done so much cram studying you know every time I have a test I know I'm sitting there and I think alright I'm gonna study today or tomorrow maybe tomorrow maybe the next day and then soon enough guess what the next day is the exam so I am studying the night of the exam and it is really stressful but the good news is if you do this you can definitely get through that so really you're probably in one of a few situations so either one the best situation is maybe you paid attention in class and you did your homework and you just put off studying a little bit so now you're studying it's just gonna be you know refreshing your brain on what you already know and of course that's gonna be your best option hopefully this is your case if it's not maybe you haven't studied yet because it's a difficult class and it's a really a daunting task just to study so you keep putting it off maybe you just plain forgot maybe you miss manage your time or maybe you don't even know where to start studying so no matter which situation you're in I can relate to you I promise I've been in that situation before I've had lots of tests where I you know unbelievably hard content I didn't know where to start but you know I'm gonna walk you through a quick step-by-step how to get started how to study and how to most effectively learn everything you have to so you can get into this exam be confident be comfortable and do the best you can so step number one in this system is the chapter so the first thing you want to do is you want to find out what chapters are on this exam and then you want to just write down you know what the titles if you already know this good for you hop right on to step number two if not look in the syllabus maybe look on the teacher's website anywhere you can find out what chapters are going to be on this exam you want to go you want to look them up and then go to your book if you have a book and just look up the chapter titles it it's like chapters one through three just look at each one write down the title so this will give you like the big overview of what you're going to be learning and one big thing here you want this really to calm you down and understand okay you only have three or four chapters you have maybe five chapters you know no matter what you're not gonna have a hundred chapters to do on one exam so you know when you write these down you can see you know that's actually not that much because the big key to studying one of the biggest things is actually frustration so frustration is your enemy you want to be able to bust that right now you write down what your chapters are you don't get frustrated you want to know how much you have to learn don't you know you're gonna try to de-stress yourself and you're just gonna go and see the big picture before getting into number two so don't forget cramming is a lot harder for a lot of people because of three big things one thing is of course the content there's a lot of content to learn and that's why it's hard but I'm going to show you how to do that number two is time management a lot of people are really struggling with time management and number three is probably the biggest one and that is the emotional aspect people get caught up you know they're really stuck on something so they're just banging their head against their desk you're not gonna learn anything doing that you need to calm down you need to look at the content and then you need to move on to the next step and you just really you know channel all of your your stress and your pressure into focus and confidence so step number two is time management you know again this is before where you can get into the really the studying this these first two steps are only a couple minutes what you want to do now is you want to look at how much time you have so maybe you know you have it's eight o'clock at night maybe and you're you're watching this video and you think alright I want to go to bed by midnight and then I got to get up at 7 maybe I'll have a half hour in the morning so I have four and a half hours so you divide you divide the work into these steps don't divide by chapter divide by step so you want to say okay step number three as I'm gonna say in a second is you know the overview so you want to say alright I have like 30 minutes for the overview of all these chapters and then I want to get in and outline them all in the next then I want to practice questions for an hour and then you really want to plan through what you're gonna do so step three is you know the overview of what you're gonna learn this is a great one to say it's sort of get a better idea as you're getting into the content this is going to be you know I always I love crash course videos if you know the green brothers go check them out on YouTube they have some great videos and really a big thing is they have like a multimedia approach where they have animations they have you know one of the green brothers is reading you something and so overall you have this this big mash up of all these different content media's that you can learn and it really sticks in your brain a lot better they also plow through it really really quick so the content you're learning is really they call it crash course for a reason because everything you need to know is just in a couple minutes it'll be like a 5-10 minute video and so definitely check those out they have them for almost every subject out there honestly if you're taking a history exam go check it out just type in crash course and then maybe you know history civil war whatever whatever it is you're learning about right now they probably have it so going along with this please be sure to always include many different methods of media when you're trying to memorize stuff so if you're reading something you want to read it you want to write it you want to say it you want to have needle a whole variety of different ways that it'll stick to different parts your brain and you can connect at all so that you are maximizing your memorization effects you know during your time studying you don't waste time you know reading stuff that you're gonna forget later and that's another reason you want to be calm because when you're stressed your brain is not committing things to memory it's worried your brain is focused on worrying and trying to figure things out and get through things you really does not the key to studying the key is to relax and just commit everything you can to memory because you only have so much time before you test tomorrow right okay so step number four is content organization this one is going to be the obviously the bulk of your studying so now we're getting into what you want to do for maybe a couple hours this is gonna be like the really big part now what you want to do what I personally like to do is I go chapter by chapter and I read I outline all my notes I look at so I collect every type of media that we have for the content that I'm learning so if there's a PowerPoint from the from the teacher if there's notes that I took if there's a textbook I go through and I look at all of them simultaneously sleeeeep nitrate an outline so i hand-write an outline and maybe if it's like a 15 page chapter i'll come up with like two or three pages of outline this one you really want to focus on like the key words the key concepts you want to skim through and ignore any fluff you don't have time for that you just want to look at you know some textbooks do a great job of bolding words you know that are important so you want to go through and you find a bold word that's a good one to write down so you once again you're looking at equations methods concepts big events anything really critical for this content and then if you don't know what it is another great thing to do is maybe you can't find it in your notes or you don't know what's going on check out Wikipedia I know in high school they tell you it's not a good source Wikipedia is an amazing source it's not great if you're writing an essay but if you're just trying to learn something really quick they have wonderful resources you can just go there look up literally any word you want and they'll have like a nice a nice description of it that's that's the beauty of Wikipedia so step number five so say once you get through all of your outlining your studying and like I said maybe you want to make note cards too once you get through that the next thing is to do practice problems now this might be one that if you don't have enough time for this and you're gonna cut out one of these six steps this is the one to maybe cut out but once again you want to probably try to get a little bit of time to do this so if you're doing a math test if you're on a science anything that or even if it's a concept question you know you want to go through a lot of chapters in the back we'll have some questions so you can go through definitely check these out so this will this will convert your brain form in taking the information to actually processing and regurgitating information that you think is valid so you can answer these questions you can get used to not just learning the content but also using the content that is a really really important idea when you're studying so you want to suck in all the information convert it to something you can you can memorize and categorize in your brain and then step three of course is the practice problems that'll really push it through now lastly number six is to talk about it now you know they say you don't actually know a topic until you can teach somebody about it now this is something if you have maybe you saw anybody around it could be your parents you could be your brother your sister maybe you have friends at school I personally like to the morning of a test maybe 30 minutes before I'll find other people in the class and all you know I'll teach them what I learned and so you kind of go through and explain the topics to them and this really this will do two things so one if you say something that's incorrect they will say hey that doesn't really make sense you can go back and you can change it you know that's a good catch right before you go to the exam maybe you missed something they'll tell you that and then the second thing this was do is give you the confidence where you say yeah I know all this I just taught them everything I need to know everything they need to know about this so number six as I said is to talk to other people and explain what you've learned to them so overall this is all stuff that you could take weeks to do this if you have a lot of time to study but if you're going to study the night before this is the most efficient way to study some extra tips I got for you guys number one is you want to have memory triggers so if you are if you're looking at if you're trying to learn something you want to somehow remember it so that's another reason why you might be saying why would I outline everything why would I make note cards why would I do that and the idea is to trigger different parts of your brain so you know maybe if you're chewing gum or you're using a certain pencil you know practice like you play that's what they say so when you're in the exam you want to somehow have memory triggers maybe maybe acronyms or maybe some kind of mnemonic devices that you can recall the information that you learned before so when you're studying be sure to you know something I like to do is I use like a certain pencil when I study I you like the same pencil when you when you take the exam it sounds really dumb but there's a lot of scientific evidence to show that using you know there are memory triggers like that where when you were using one item during an exam it can trigger an idea from when you were studying and that way it'll better connect your studying to your exam because let's face it the worst thing ever is when you're sitting there thinking you know I study this I know it what is that word and you can't remember it but like I said if you just have these little memory triggers pneumonic devices acronyms anything like that this will relate it back and you'll be able to remember as much as possible from when you were studying so that's all half you guys today good luck on your exam hopefully this video helped you a lot if you liked it be sure to drop a like and consider subscribing to my channel and let me know if this video helped you definitely comment below I would love to hear you know what what you guys think of this anything I'm missing anything you thought was especially helpful thank you all for watching and I'll see you next time [Applause]

hey guys and welcome back to my channel so today I'm going to be filming another video in my how I revise series and that is going to be how I revised my English language exams and my English literature exams so the reason I decided to incorporate the two subjects into one video is because honestly I did not revise enough for English language for it to be worth having his own video and the reason that I honestly didn't revise English literature that much it's because I just didn't feel like I needed to I found that I was getting good grades without having to revise it that much because honestly English language is one of those subjects where you can't really properly revise for the exam however I did do a little bit of revision for English language and that was to simply have a look at the marks scheme for each of the different question types and then also look at some examples of answers with my students who are getting similar grades that I wanted these were really easy to find on the exam website and then also I know that teachers have a resource as well where they can have a look at more example questions so you can always just ask your English teacher to provide you with some examples or mark scheme if you're struggling to find some yourself also for English language I found that watching Mr brough videos on YouTube was really really helpful because he goes through the mic scheme as well and he talks about all the kind of do's and don'ts of each question because I'm sure as you know each question is different on the paper so it's worth knowing the differences between them and also where students get caught ow and use marks etc that was pretty much all I did for English language I didn't do much else I didn't do any practice questions I probably should have but I didn't but if he do struggle with English language then obviously I recommend doing all the things I just said and doing lots of practice questions which I'm sure you could find online or you can ask your teacher for some anyway moving on to English which is what the majority of this video is going to be about because I did actually revise what English literature and I did quite a lot of revision and quite a lot of different revision methods so my first tip for English literature is simply read the text if you don't know what the storyline of your texts are then it's gonna be pretty hard to answer an exam question on them so make sure that you know what's going on with each of your tax whether it be your play whether it be the poems whether it be attacks whatever I don't recommend watching the movie versions of them because sometimes it won't be exactly the same as a story and like twisted the quotes they might have modernized the speech net but obviously at the end of the year if you do want a quick recap their movies can be a really good way to just quickly recap the storyline of one of your texts I read all of my text at least twice on my own that's excluding the times that you read it in class and I think that that did really help me because at the end of the year I had a really detailed understanding of all the text and I think that was really vital to the grade that I got if you are struggling reading your Shakespeare play for example then I really recommend going on the website called sparknotes because they have this and they have this part of their website called no failed Shakespeare and basically they translate all the Shakespeare plays into kind of modern language so what you'll do is you'll have original Shakespeare text on one side and then the translated modern text on the other side so side-by-side comparison and I read Macbeth in this way at least once I think and this helped me so much because if you're reading some scenes and you're just like what on earth is going on here because I feel your pain Shakespeare is hard to read sometimes and hard to understand okay a lot clearer to understand and also it can highlight the importance of some quotes and also translate some words that you might be stuck on so when you are reading your next say it is the last time you're reading them or the second-to-last time I recommend going through and highlighting all the key quotations I don't mean this as quotations that you focused on in class I mean quotations that you think you could talk about any other question and also quotations that you think prove a point it doesn't have to be the kind of generic quotations everyone uses because I know for like Macbeth there are quotes that everybody knows like is that a dagger I see before me etc everybody knows that close so maybe go through and highlight some more kind of original quotes that not so many people talk about also here if you're wondering what this is this is my Christmas carol text and I was just going to show you how I've highlighted all the key quotes so I did this throughout the whole thing and I highlighted quite a lot obviously you are not going to use all these quotations in one exam question and one essay but it helps to have a wide range of them also I did not memorize all these quotations these are just ones that I thought were relevant and I thought I could talk about the reason I think is really helpful to go through and highlight any key quotes is because it can then help you with further revision methods one of the revision methods that I use is I made flowcharts for the events of attacks so for example in Macbeth I made a flow chart for each scene and each part of each scene so what I would do is I put a short summary of what happened in that scene or that part that scene and then also I would list some key quotations that I highlighted underneath that so here is one of my Macbeth flow charts so as you can see this is scene one and I've just put short introduction introduced to witches our planning went to meet Macbeth and then underneath I'll put some key quotations like in thunder lightning or in brain when the hurlyburly's done when the battles lost and won and I've done that for all the different scenes as you can see this so they sort of follow around like and this provides you with a really great overview of the whole text and this is really useful at the end of the year if you just want to quickly recap what happens in each scene and the key things are said in those scenes so you could make those flowcharts as he went along or after you'd finished reading the whole book so what I did is as I was reading Macbeth say after I'd read the first scene I would then go write the summary and the key quotations on my flowchart then I would read scene to do scene to on my flow chart that scene three seams here on the flow chart you get my drift also another thing that I did is I made mind maps you can make mind maps for characters you can make mind maps or themes you can do it for pretty much anything in English literature so I did a lot of character mind maps and I did these mainly for a Christmas Carol which is one of the texts I studied so I just have some examples here so here I have a mind map for the minor characters in A Christmas Carol so we've got like Marley's ghost portly gentleman Fezziwig Belle bells family businessman etc and then what I've done is I basically once again use the key quotations I've highlighted in my text and put these around and then also I've kind of written down the key things about those characters here we have for Molly ghost for example I've written a key quotation here and it's a mortal life too short for it's fast means of usefulness then I've just annotated that a bit saying life's too short to waste it on things that don't matter Eugene money I find this a really good way to memorize the quotations as well and annotating them obviously helps to develop your ideas and if this part of the text comes up in your question then you already know some of the annotations of some of the quotations that may be in that extract so I've done that for pretty much all the quotations and and all the things that I think are significant about each character and if you are struggling for inspiration that you can go on spark rates they do have character analysis and things like that and then also you can get revision guides for English literature as well that have a little like character fact files and stuff so that can be a really good place to get ideas about the characters and get perhaps some more original ideas and ones that you've discussed in class so this does look quite big and confusing because obviously it's got a lot on it but to me it does make sense obviously I've got other characters there and then I've got these little dashes that go off from there and the quotations and if you follow the dashes and it's pretty much self-explanatory where they need to okay I have one for Scrooge so for the bigger characters like the main characters use of your text it might be worth doing a whole mind map on them because obviously there is a lot to say about them so here's one that I did on Scrooge once again doing the same sort of thing but here I have all the significant things about Scrooge so I have communication with other characters foil for other characters his change is home and his counting-house his appearance and his characteristics and then I've got key quotes all about these certain things and once again annotations of those quotes showing what they mean showing how they're significant to Scrooge then I have one for ghosts as well and a small one here just for some more minor characters so then what you can do with those mind maps is you can stick them on your wall stick them I don't know on your ceiling on your floor and I stuck wine on my board room somewhere away you can read them and you can look over them selves on a weekly basis daily basis whatever and I found that this really helped for me to memorize the key quotations because say in the evening I just sort of sat in front of my wardrobe and just read over my mind maps read the points it said read the quotations and I found that this Bissman that I took it in a lot more and remembered it quite well another thing that you can do with your key quotations and something I found really helped me is you can make key quotation fact files so I did this for an inspector calls and basically what I did is flicks through my spectacles book and looked over all the quotations and then broke them under the character like title so here we have an example of that so here we have mr. burning at the top and then these are all quotes from mr. burning that I thought was significant and that I thought I could talk about and perhaps I could use in an essay and the ones that are highlighted are like the key key quotations so these are the ones that I made sure that I remembered oh I'm not sure what these sticky notes are actually oh they're just sort of like extra kind of like brainwaves that I had about points so I just took the map so I have those for mr. burning and there here we have lots for the inspector because obviously he's a very key character he says a lot and I did them in different colors as you can see to tell the difference here we have a lot of key quotations from Sheila and some from Gerald and some from Eric and then some from mrs. burning you get my drift it's just key quotations from all of them and then also I have some key stage directions because you do get marks for talking about stage directions in your exam because it is a structural point so I made sure that I learned some of stage directions and I did actually use some of the quotations of stage directions in my exam which I think I probably did get much more also I really apologize if you can hear background noise it has it sort of like on and off raining so I think you can probably hear rain in the background of this now but I mean I do live in England so what can you expect as I said earlier another thing you can do is also obviously watch the Mr brough videos he does videos on the poems he does videos on loads and loads of different tax loads of different exam techniques and stuff so it's really worth going and checking out it's channel it really helped me with my GCSE revision and I know it helped a lot my friends so it's definitely worth going and having a look at so for the poem anthology obviously this is slightly different to the other texts I did revise it in a slightly different way so the method which I use to revise the poems is I read over each of the poems in my poetry anthology one by one and after I'd read one poem I would then go into my notebook and I would write down all the key quotes that I remembered so obviously before you do this you've got to have a good understanding of all the poems otherwise there's no point in even starting to try and remember anything from them but I would then go into this notebook and I'll just give you an example if I can find it oh here we have some poems and basically I would write down all the quotes that I could remember this was cruel quite early on by the way I did remember more than this in the end but this is quite early on revision so in black I wrote down all the quotes that I remembered and then I would go back after I've done everything and I would check to see if the quotations were right and also write down the ones that I had missed out obviously I would not do this for every single line in the poem I would just do this for once again what I consider to be the key quotations so I did this for all the poems and I found that this really helped me I did this several times as well this isn't sort of a one-time revision thing you've got to do this several times so I did this technique at least twice before the exam where I would write down everything that I remembered from the poem after I just read it through and then check back and add more key quotations etc also for poems obviously you can also use mind maps and I know that this worked really well for people and I myself did do mind maps I didn't do a mind map for every single poem I just did them for once a time so and chiron or had revised less such as I did one for storm on the island and I actually did this and a study with me video once but I have no idea where that my mother's gone otherwise I would show it to you but basically what I did is I put a little printout of poem in the middle of the mindmap and then I annotated and I highlighted the key quotes and annotate those and then I added a little box of context also for these mind maps obviously once again you can seek inspiration from like online resources and one thing that really helped me especially for the context of each poem is this book by David wheeler and it is the AQA GCSE poetry anthology conflict and power the student guide so I did conflict and power if you were wondering and basically he does like a really short kind of summary of each poem where he talks about the context of all of them and then he also talks about kind of his his take on the key quotations and what he thinks the poem is about and as you can see once again I've highlighted some of its because I mean it wouldn't be linear study to revision if I didn't highlight half the book also this goes without saying for English literature it is definitely worth doing practice exam questions obviously I'm sure in class he will do some practice exam questions with your assessments and your mocks maybe but it is worth doing some of your own back as well because in the long run it will help you it will develop the writing style you will get to know more of how you can get around points better if that makes sense you will develop a sort of like structure as well to your writing the more than you practice can find exam questions online and then once again I'm sure your teacher will be more than happy to provide you but some practice ones for you to try and then also if your teachers being really nice to you you can also ask them to mark any practice questions that you do to see what kind of level that you're at and see where you're going wrong maybe and see where you can improve it's always worth seeking feedback on his essays because it will genuinely help you to improve them if you know and if it's highlighted where you're going wrong or perhaps where you're losing marks or this also needs on to my next point and that is make sure that you know exactly what the mark scheme is asking from you I know the mic scheme can be quite hard to understand sometimes so maybe ask our teachers to sort of translate it to you or once again mister breath he explains marks scheme quite well in his videos because if you then understand what the exam board wants from you then it is going to be quite then it's going to be a lot easier to pinpoint exactly those things in your essays and make sure you're sort of mentally taking off all the things that they want to see in your essay so it's really really worth familiarizing yourself with the math schemes you can find them online really easily so that is all the methods that I use to revise for my GCSE English literature exams and also my GCSE language exams I hope that you found this video useful if you did please do let me know down below in the comments also perhaps share how your advice for your GCSE English literature exams if you have done them obviously everywhere Advisors in different ways and I've definitely not covered all the ways that you can revise in this video as usual
