School and Educator Corner
With mocks upon us and finals in October,
here are some study tips that will help learners revise:
  • Suggest learners prepare a calendar with their scheduled exams 
  • During class time, highlight important details, ask questions to clarify any confusing information, anticipate exam questions and look for answers
  • Suggest the use of flashcards. Flashcards are handy for reviewing vocabulary, grammar rules, historical facts and dates, geographical statistics, mathematical formulas and foreign language phrases
  • Mind maps are also useful to organise and understand information faster and better 
  • A dedicated WhatsApp study group helps learners share notes and discussions + last-minute clarifications with their peers
  • Practise using past papers or example questions 
  • In-class collaborative group discussions can promote critical, analytical and independent thinking
  • Set example questions of different kinds for practice 
  • Solve any problems that have not been dealt with previously
  • Encourage learners to recharge by making sure they are following a healthy diet, sleep and exercise
