Organisational Tips to Help you ace Exams 

Getting organised can be a bit intimidating at first. Don’t stress, we’ve compiled a list of organisational tips just for you! To get started, you can incorporate a few of these habits to help you during your studies.

Make Sure all Your Notes are in Order 

Before you even start studying, your class notes should be well organised. It is important that all your study resources are accessible. This way, when your exam date draws closer, you won’t be panicking while looking for your books. 

Create a Study Timetable 

Managing your time properly can make a world of difference in your studies. Start by drawing up a study timetable that matches your exam timetable. This will ensure that you know what exam is coming next and allow enough time for preparation. 

Set Daily Study Goals 

Everyday before you start any work, make a list of the subjects and topics you want to study. Doing so will help you keep track of your understanding of the work. It will also keep you from suffering from burn out due to information overload. 

Free Yourself From Distractions 

It’s easier said than done, but turn your phone off during your study time. When taking a study break, don’t go on social media as this could lead to procrastination. If you give into distractions you run the risk of being unprepared for your exams. 

Prioritise What’s Important 

Take time to look at your report card and analyse your strengths and weaknesses. If you’re lacking in certain subjects, try to prioritise them when studying. Doing this will help you improve your final results and your confidence. 

Organise Your Space

Keep your study space neat and tidy! This includes your room, backpack and desk. An organised space improves mental and emotional health. It will help you gain the motivation to prepare for your exams.
