Now, we all know how tough it can be to motivate yourself to get organised with studying, but with exam season just around the corner, it’s now or never. So, to help you out, I have been conjuring up some awesome organisational ideas, here are my 5 top tips:
Make A Revision TimetableHonestly, without making a revision timetable I do not think I would have coped with my exams. If you don’t have a set plan of how long you want to revise for, I think it’s easy to slack - if you have a clear end point/break, you will feel so much more motivated to push on. Also, before making a revision timetable it is useful to consider any subjects that need a little more attention, as you can then filter in more time for those accordingly!
Go Overboard With The FoldersAnybody who knows me will know how obsessive I am about folders and files; I just think they make everything a little bit more manageable. By having designated folders for different subjects, it is super easy to keep everything in order and locate any resources you need for your study time.
Get A Suitable BagThis is often a tip which goes unheard of: getting yourself a sturdy bag which is suitable for carrying all your essentials. Personally, I think a backpack is ideal, so when I saw this The North Face Back Pack from Urban Outfitters (pssst, don’t forget you can get 10% off using your UNiDAYS® discount) I just couldn’t resist. It is a multi-compartment bag, so you could have one section for books, one for supplies (etc.) helping you to stay ultra-organised.
Create Your Own WorkspaceHaving your very own workspace for studying is an essential. If you want to remain organised and get the most out of your study sessions, I would advise that you keep your study area as clean/clutter-free as possible, removing anything that could distract you from your learning. This will help you to keep focused on your work. The TV will still be there after, I promise!
Set RemindersNow, I know I was just stressing the importance of keeping clear of distractions whilst studying, but there are times when you phone can come in handy - by using the reminder/ notes features, you could set alerts to remind you of key dates or important events. You may use it to remind you that you have a project due in, or you could even create a digital revision timetable - go on, try it!
