Topic Area:


‘Post-it’ notes are great for keywords, ideas, quotes, formula, tricky spellings. Stick them up in places where you spend a lot of time. The information will start to soak in.

Make a recording of yourself talking about key information. Listen whenever you can
  • Revise with friends – take turns to give key points to answer a question about a topic so everyone is on the spot
  • Reduce information – try to keep reducing your notes into a few key words. Big challenge – cut a whole subject onto one
