Mid-term Study: Get the most out of your break in 8 easy steps!

2 Write down your goals 

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.


3 Schedule

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. 

 

4 Ask

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.

5 Quiz

Keep your brain fresh, exercise it. Have a friend ask you a few questions on a topic after you've finished  revising it

6 Use your own words


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.

7 Reward yourself

When you've reached your goal for the day; treat yourself.  A hot chocolate, a bit of Facebook-ing, pancakes on Tuesday! Find your own way to reward yourself for all the hard work that you've put in!

8 Don't stress

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!
