So this year we've had a shakeup in the way that things are going to happen.
Exams are cancelled, you're getting assigned your grades from your predicted grades (it seems at the minute) and the government and all schools, colleges and universities are working out the best way to do this fairly. It's all a bit up in the air at the minute while the world has gone a bit bonkers.
And what does no exams mean? Well it certainly doesn't mean you have nothing to do right now. School is still in session, so make sure you're keeping on top of the work you do have!
So how can you make sure you're efficient as possible during the pandemic lockdown?
Push say, don’t just work hard — work smart. Work out what works for you personally: that depends on what style of learner you are. Are you a seer, a hearer or a doer?
No idea which you are? Try them all and see what you remember best: the stuff you saw, heard or did.
Whatever kind you are, everyone learns by understanding what it is exactly you’re trying to study. To achieve a deep understanding, try teaching a friend whatever it is you’re trying to learn over video chat. It’s a win-win. They learn about a subject and you remember the facts.
The memory isn’t a safe place to keep stuff though. It can get lost. You need to check on it every once in a while to see that it’s still there. And the more you revisit it, the better the path you make to find it whenever you need to. So plan your home schooling to allow you to go over each topic several times, each time in less detail, until just the question will brings the whole lot flooding out like the jackpot on a Vegas fruit machine.
