Consolidate your Learning

Week 3 already…

skillsforsuccessAre you consolidating your learning as you go?

Consolidating Learning (often known as Revision) should be a semester-long activity. Some successful students have reported that in addition to their ongoing study, when they reach Week 3 they start revising Week 1 material; when they reach Week 4 they start revising Week 2 material. Might this be a practice that you want to try?

Our advice is: –

  • Start revision early i.e. now…
  • Keep revising as you study – do little but often
  • When you complete a topic, revise it – it can make it easier to learn the next topic
  • Towards the end of a course, you’ll find that reviewing the material helps to bring everything together

Further guidance on consolidating learning/revision/exams is available in the ‘Revision and Exam Success’ module, Skills for Success, in Vision.

New students have been automatically registered for Skills for Success. If you’re a continuing student and haven’t yet registered for Skills for Success, you can self-enrol – see
