Day 17 of 60 Days of Productivity
so i kinda took an unplanned day off yesterday and i think it really helped and today i am going to try to really make some progress on some of my english work. personally i find english the hardest to revise because it never feels like i鈥檝e done enough and it is such a broad subject to cover.
anyway, i鈥檓 pretty proud of today鈥檚 notes because they definitely turned out better than i picture in my mind! the title is definitely not perfect and there are a few letters that just would not cooperate but considering this was my first time doing this sort of font style i鈥檓 really pleased with it!!!

How To Study When You Really Don鈥檛 Want To
Active Revision Techniques
How To Do Uni Readings
How to Revise BIG Subjects
Non-Stop Studying
The Problem
You find a comfortable spot to study and refuse to move ever again. You don鈥檛 even think about taking a break鈥攖hat would be a waste of time and your due date is super close so you can't afford to do that
The Solution
Whether you鈥檙e doing this because you think it鈥檚 efficient or because you left everything until the last minute, you鈥檙e not going to learn much. Our brains need rest time to process information. Planning ahead is the key here. Instead of focusing only on your deadlines, work backwards and figure out when you need to聽start working on a project. Take into account how long each part聽of the work will take you. You鈥檒l feel less overwhelmed and more able to actually learn the material, as opposed to just cramming. If you鈥檙e really in a pinch (hey, it happens to everyone), try out the聽pomodoro method:聽25 minutes on, 5 minutes off, with a longer break every 4 circuits. It holds off exhaustion and keeps you feeling refreshed over long periods of heavy work!
Over Highlighting
The Problem
You try to study by reading the textbook, but somehow end up highlighting everything and remembering nothing.
The Solution
Turns out, passively re-reading a textbook is pretty useless. Just because you鈥檙e聽holding a highlighter聽doesn鈥檛 mean you鈥檙e actually engaging with the material. Learn how to聽read actively聽by聽taking notes聽as you read, which will force you to decide what parts of the reading are worth remembering. Come up with practice questions or make flashcards. The more of the 5 senses you use in your studying, the more likely you are to remember the information. If your exam includes an essay portion, think about what kinds of themes your professor might ask about and make some possible outlines. Even if your practice questions don鈥檛 actually show up on the exam, you鈥檒l be in the right headspace!
Multitasking聽
The Problem
You are studying at the same time that you are watching the newest show on Netflix, texting a friend about what happened last Tuesday and cooking a three-course meal.
The Solution
People are actually聽really bad at multitasking. While we think we鈥檙e focusing on 2 things at once, we鈥檙e actually switching between 2 tasks very rapidly, meaning that our brains never have time to fully adjust to working on either one. Unfortunately, the only way around this one is to plan ahead (weird how that keeps cropping up). Make a study schedule ahead of time and figure out which days you鈥檒l devote to which subjects. You鈥檒l be able to process the material more efficiently than you would if your attention was split between tasks, and ultimately you鈥檒l have more confidence in what you鈥檝e learned.
Solo Studying聽
The Problem
You only ever study in solitude and refuse to ask anyone else for help.
The Solution
Studying on your own is fine (sometimes even preferable), but having people you can聽bounce ideas off of can be insanely helpful (even over Zoom!).聽Convince a friend or family member to let you 鈥渢each鈥 them the material鈥攖he gaps in your understanding will become more obvious when you try to explain a topic to an uninformed party. If you have no one available, you could even teach to a pet or toy. Most importantly, take advantage of your professors or teachers and contact them if you鈥檙e confused about something. You won鈥檛 regret it.
Studying Chronologically
The Problem
You sit down to revise for an exam and you look through all of the notes from your class in chronological order.
The Solution
In addition to being a very passive study strategy, it also puts you at risk of running out of time to review the material you learnt most recently, which is often emphasised more heavily on the final exam and can also be some of the most difficult concepts to master 鈥 especially for classes like math and languages that increase in difficulty throughout the semester. You will also probably be reviewing information you already know.聽Instead of studying in chronological order, try studying in priority order, spending the majority of your time on the information that will be most important for you to know for the test.
Memorising, Rather Than Understanding聽
The Problem
You know that you need to know facts in an exam so you study by trying to memorise all of the facts from a class, rather than truly understanding the underlying concepts.聽
The Solution
Memorising can work well in some classes, especially in earlier stages of school, but it often backfires in more advanced classes. If you鈥檝e memorised a definition but don鈥檛 really understand what it means, then as soon as the information is presented in a slightly different format, or you鈥檙e asked to apply it to a new type of problem, you will have no idea how to proceed. Rather than memorising the information from your classes, use study strategies that encourage you to understand it. Explaining ideas out loud in your own words, or teaching them to someone else, are great examples of study strategies that promote understanding.
Not Practicing How You鈥檒l Be Tested
The Problem
You have a study method that you use for all of your exams no matter the subject or the format of the exam.聽
The Solution
It鈥檚 great to have a study method that supports your revision but often they can be limited to specific skills. For example, flashcards might be a great strategy for a test that is mostly multiple-choice and matching questions, but they might be less useful for essays. If you want to be prepared for your exams, you need to make sure that the way you are studying for your test is similar to how you will actually be tested on the material.聽The best way to do this is by doing practice questions. Numerous studies have shown that students who test themselves on the material they are learning remember the information better than students who do not take practice tests. Practice testing also helps you avoid 鈥渋llusions of competence鈥: situations in which you think you know the information better than you do.聽
Not Using Active Revision Techniques
The Problem
You study by re-reading over your notes or perhaps rewriting them.聽
The Solution
Unfortunately, this approach to studying is not very effective, in large part because it is extremely passive. Students who use this approach will readily admit that they can read over a page of notes and not remember what they have just read! If you don鈥檛 remember it right after you鈥檝e read it, how could you possibly hope to answer questions about it on the test? Choosing more active study strategies that require you to engage with the material will enable you to learn the material more effectively and efficiently. This includes: mindmaps, flashcards, past papers, study groups, and many more.

so i took yesterday off from revision and i think today i鈥檓 still going to take it easy. i鈥檓 not entirely sure what i鈥檓 going to do yet but it鈥檚 definitely not going to be you know writing a load of essay plans or doing past papers cause i just don鈥檛 feel up to that... i think i might just write some pretty notes as something that is easy but still means i鈥檝e accomplished something聽

my plan is to write some history essay plans today. yesterday i did think that i would do some english but i just looked at my exam timetable and decided to prioritise history because it is well before the particular english assessments i was going to revise and i haven鈥檛 had the chance to look at the history in about a year. it is really important when you have lots of different subjects and a lot of content to study that you prioritise because it is basically impossible to cover everything otherwise
