Another free Study Tip If you are studying late, I would either go to bed so you dont forget anything, or drink something to stay awake. Also, keep active if you are getting tired. Make sure you know your studying material forwards and backwards.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors I find it very helpful and useful to write information down on a bit of coloured card and cut to size and stick in on my wall. The reason why I find it helpful is because the colour attracts my attention and also helps remind me of the bit of information I need to remember. Try it girls and boys. It might be very helpful.
