Study tips for successful revision: Study Buddies & Study Groups

studygroupIt’s week 8 already – a good time to find a study buddy or join a study group and start early with exam preparation. If you haven’t found the right study group start your own.   Agree a regular time to meet and book one of our Group Study Rooms (Edinburgh campus) or check out the other study spaces across your campus and decide where to meet.

Research shows that studying and revising with a study buddy or with a group really boosts retention and more importantly your understanding of a topic or concept. Test each other. Past exam papers are a good source of practice questions – if you can’t find them on Vision ask your lecturer if they can make some available.   Within the study group take turns to explain the concept/idea or the workings of a problem or formulae – everyone benefits, especially the student doing the explaining!
