Dear Year 11 / Year 12 Student,
As part of our dedication to student success here at LearnMate Tutoring, we have decided to prepare a simple study planner to help you with your achieving success next year.
Remember that as you have many assessments to complete, it’s important that you not only plan your study schedule, but ALSO stick to it! Many students plan study schedules, but fail to adhere to it.
To make use of this exam study planner, download and print it out – then fill it in and put it up on the wall. Alternatively, you may choose to type it in Word.
Some tips when planning your study schedule:
- Start off by going through all content and knowledge learnt throughout the year FIRST. Then move onto practical application.
- You can purchase notes from other students or independent companies, but make sure you also make your own notes to ensure memorability of information.
- Try to write all practice pieces and NOT type it.
- Try to practice assessments under timed conditions, so that you can practice under pressure. Remove all distractions.
Remember to STICK TO THE SCHEDULE. Of course, there will be days when you’re not feeling well or have other commitments, so when planning keep in mind what you can do and what is achievable based on your strengths and weaknesses. This means don’t overfill it and then not commit to any of it!
NOTE: This is general advice and not necessarily subject-specific assessment preparation advice. Make sure you talk to your LearnMate tutor to learn how to study effectively for your specific subject.
