Mid Term Study: Get The Most Out Of Your Break In 7 Easy Steps!
What do you want to get out of the next week? Be realistic. You're probably not going to cover an entire syllabus! Write down a few topics you really want to make progress with and pin it to the wall in front of your desk. Focusing on 4 or 5 key areas over a week will be much more beneficial than doing bits and pieces here and there.
Create a schedule. Choose a time-slot for each day, 9-12, 12-4, 6-9 and stick to it. Focus on getting a few hours of solid work done each day, that way you will still be getting your work done and enjoying your time off. Getting into a routine and a rhythm now will also help you settle into one easier as the year progresses.
It's always a good idea to get someone else's feedback on something. If you're writing an essay, have a parent/guardian, friend, or even little sister take a read! They may have some valuable input and might even see something you hadn't noticed before.
Keep your brain fresh, exercise it. Have a friend ask you a few questions on a topic after you've finished revising it
Re-writing a chapter word for word will be of little benefit. Read, re-read, break it down in your own words. Using flashcards are a proven way to get the most out of your studies and for retaining the information.
When you've reached your goal for the day; treat yourself. A hot chocolate, a bit of Instagram-ing, pancakes on Tuesday! Find your own way to reward yourself for all the hard work that you've put in!
Your workload is going to increase over the next few months. You want to go back to school with a fresh and rested mind. Don’t kid yourself. Most students are probably not going to study for 10 hours a day.
Take it easy and enjoy the Mid-term!
