Students study in different ways. They have various habits and rituals when studying for exams. Some prefer to study early in the morning, whereas others study at night. Some prefer to read loudly as they study and some want to read silently.
Please share your learning habits with others.

When I was revising for A/Ls, each and every one of my friends had a slightly different way of revising, preparing for exams and making notes (if any). I think the most important thing to realise is that there is no absolute right and wrong way, just the way you are comfortable with and what works for you.
My advice is to experiment. Early on in A/Ls or while in O/L stages, try out a few different methods; vary the time in which you study, try reading out aloud, try studying alone, or in a study group, and try making short notes or using the highlighter pen. Depending on what you find easiest and what brings you the best results in school exams or when answering practice questions, decide on your ‘very own studying pattern’. Don’t be too worried about what your friends are doing, find out what works best for you and stick to it!
