You don’t like to review? Don’t you know how to do it and stress starts to get on the way to your exams? This week the team of Bodypack give you his few tricks and tricks to accompany you during this period that is not the funest of your life. But if you put some of these leads into effect, promised, sworn... it’s the guaranteed success! 😊
Connecting one's courses often
Your teachers have been releasing him all year round: you have to review his courses often. Well, you know what, they're right, to memorize, nothing better than rehearsal. We have to go out and read its courses, put in the hot in your school bag, to learn them. But not stupidly, reading to read is of no use. You have to understand what you're reading so you can remember it.
You haven’t read anything and revised the year? You feel like you don’t hold anything when you read your classes again? Everything is not lost! You still have a few weeks to rectify the shooting and generate all the knowledge you need on D-Day.
If you don’t get there alone, it’s simple: get yourself helpful. At home first, your parents are there, they can help you. They have knowledge and can share it with you if you ask them questions and give you advice on your revisions, like helping you set up a revision planning to avoid deadlocks, manage your time well and be ready in time and time.
If your parents aren't too available, turn to your teachers and friends.
In some middle and high schools, support course are sometimes set up by the teaching team of your institution. The opportunity for you to take back the unacquired points during the year and straighten the bar. Sometimes you don’t like some teachers, you don’t like their lessons of the coup you don’t listen to anything because you’re not captivated by your teacher. But when you get to the day of the exam, it’s the blank page and the stress! so to avoid such situations, feel free to ask other teachers for help. In these support courses you will find yourself with different teachers and approaching things in a different way may help you understand them and integrate them for good. So if your college or high school sets up this kind of revisions preparation course, don’t hesitate to go with your own bodypack backpack Besides, for your parents, these courses are free, unlike school support companies where the courses are paid.
Helping you with your friends can also be a solution if you don’t like to review alone. Several brains are better than one😊
You can ask yourself questions, if you didn’t take your notes well or if you were away that day you can ask for your best friend’s notes. You will be better able to sort between what is important and what is less. But be careful not to be dispersed when you are in group it can slip on other subjects far more interesting than revisions... Self-management and small group of 2 to 4 people maximum because above it turns rather to big laughter than to efficient work.
And yes, the famous cards are still a good way to learn and review quickly. To make a good review sheet, you have to reread its course, a good point. Then you have to summarize the main information, you don’t need to copy your course, that’s not the point. For this you ask questions about style: what is really important in this course? What do I have to keep from it? What could I be asked as a question about this on the day of the examination? And you will see that you will note on your sheets the essentials to remember, without cumbering yourself with what is secondary. With this exercise, you're going to learn how to prioritize the information. Another good point is that you will go through the writing to do these cards and writing a summary of your course will also help you memorize it. Then the week before your examination and the day before you will have to read these sheets to be sure to know everything about this.
If you don’t like the sheets, if you don’t like to go through the writing too much, other more visual means exist:
The Mind Mapping (Mental card)
Basically you're schematicizing your course. You leave the subject/ main idea of your course that you place in the center of a sheet of paper and you schematicize all the information that climbs around with arrows and different colors. This pattern must help you understand all aspects of a subject and be able to answer these basic questions: Who? What, where, when, how? If you can answer these simple questions about all your subjects, you are ready for the exam, otherwise you have to “bucher” a little more and this pattern can help you fill some holes.
Giant chronology for geo history
Another very visual and creative way to learn and understand History-Geography as a whole and to bring together all the knowledge you learned from college to high school: to create your own giant chronology. From the Prehistory to today, on large sheets of papers that you link together by scooting them for example, you draw a huge arrow very wide to indicate different information: the era or the time in question, the important dates, the key characters of the time and any other information that you will consider useful to add to any event. The result is pretty magical: you understand everything. You finally get to Knowledge and Knowledge. You will understand the world in which you live today thanks to this mega chronology. And yes, all the facts of the past have an impact on the world in which you live today, with this chronology everything is finally immemorial in your mind and seeing all the events of history connected to each other will help you understand the why of how things of our History and human evolution have happened. If you do this and hang it on a wall of your room, it becomes clear because it is not obvious to condense everything in its head when you spend several years dealing with a particular time in the mess, too! and with different and more or less captivating teachers depending on the years. A good way to succeed in the history-Geo test and understand our story and who you are, where you come from? Anyway, it might even help you think about your own existence and answer some existential questions like who I am? Where do I come from? Why do I like this or this? Why is my country so powerful? And what am I going to do with my life? What do I like?
If you don’t like History-geo because it’s a shame to learn dates stupidly and even less to revise it, you can try this exercise that will teach you to appreciate it and to access Knowledge.
If you don’t like writing it, drawing, mapping ... maybe you like to watch videos on YouTube?
There are many teachers on YouTube who have created courses in videos. We call it tutorials. You have all the subjects of classes and there are for all levels. If you don’t like your teacher or you didn’t understand anything at a class, you can look at a few. There are courses with animations, illustrations that allow you to review some important points and discussed in another way which can be interesting. On the other hand, it is one way, you cannot necessarily interact with the teacher, ask questions... It is up to you to do your own analysis and to think about what has been shown to you.
Drive, train, train
Training, repetition promote memorization. Taking new exercises (at least 3 times) found on the internet, or from other teachers will help you acquire automation and be sure not to be mistaken on the day of the exam (especially for math!)
Buying some anals for the BAC is a good investment too. You will find the same exercises as those that go out to the exam because they are often subjects that have already been given. The summary sheets are also very well done, excellent course summaries, to be consulted!
Air your head
To memorize well, the spirit is necessary to aerate. During your revisions, do not hesitate to pause when you saturate. But shorts, no more than 5 minutes because after it’s harder to get back on it if you pause 20 or 30 minutes between each exercise it’s too much. Going outside, breathing, walking, running, playing sports is as necessary as sitting down at “bucher.” The brain needs to air to be able to integrate what has just been read or listened to.
Sleep well is also very important to memorize what you just learned. Don't lie down too late. Always avoid the cell phones and tablets in your bed and even in your room before you go to bed. Sleep enough hours...
What locations to review?
In your room, calm, without screen or other parasite things that can deconcentrate you, just with your notebooks and yours bodypack backpackA well-stored office, with the essentials to revise and not to disturb your attention.
Au middle school or high school to review in groups, to be able to ask questions, to address the subjects from another point of view that holds is always useful; or to the library or at CDI If you can't find the necessary concentration at home and in these places you will also have plenty of books and/or computers to review or search for more information on your course.
What is absolutely necessary for a good revision: the quiet, the silence to be able to concentrate a maximum, other advice when one reviews: no or little music, even less TV and not watch his laptop every 10 seconds. A necessary evil if you want not to revise for nothing.
In The Transport, you can reread your courses or your cards. Optimise your time. Every minute of review is good to take. It is better to revise little by little than suddenly. Privilege of Short assignments of revisions 20 to 30 minutes By subject and above 2-3 days after Rather than spend 2 large hours on the same subject or subject matter and do nothing to integrate, see you disregarding revisions.
Finding motivation to review
Isn't that the most difficult? Motivating to review ...
Yes, at Bodypack, the specialist in school leather goods, we think that finding the motiv to get to revise is the most difficult. So to get there and well: don't put pressure, go quietly, make small assignments of revision rather than big ones, in short, give themselves small, easy-to-reach goals. Then to find motivation, ask the right questions: Why do I have to pass my exams? To please Mom? NO! It is above all for you, for your future, to acquire knowledge that will then enable you to go further in life, in a course of study or to find work. Just also become smarter, more open to the world around you, find a passion ...
Having the urge to succeed is absolutely necessary for wanting to get to work.
If you're afraid not to do it, you have to work that point, stress management and self-confidence. For stress management, you can do breathing exercises, take courses in sophrology or Yoga, it's the big mode (and it also works), so to test if you can (and go with a beautiful Sports bag). There are also many coaches on YouTube who give excellent advice on personal development.
For self-confidence it can be longer, but say that if you are there, at this level, it is that you can do it and that you are in your place. Everyone is smart and as explained above, learning by heart bepidly serves no purpose, it is essential to understand and analyse this knowledge in order to be able to build itself as an adult. When you finish your exams, somewhere you would have grown up and matured. That the good is waiting for you after this review and review period. You will finally be able to enjoy life, go out, see more friends, leave over the weekend with your Technical backpack In relaxation mode and not in revision mode, you can spend more time on yourself, your family and friends, or your passion or your sport.
