Organising school work can be tedious – especially if you don’t have a good system that works for you. Hundreds of hole-punched A4 pieces of paper can easily get lost. Today, I’m going to tell you how I organise my folders and work so that I’m as organised and efficient as possible.
Staying organised as a student is absolutely essential. Whether it’s knowing what homework you have to complete or just remembering what lessons you have that day, in many ways, organisation is the key to success.
In this post, I’m going to tell you how I organise my life every single week so that I know where I need to be and what I need to do in order to stay on top of life.
I’m somewhat of a phone addict. My phone comes everywhere with me, including to college. Granted, it can sometimes lead me astray and prevent me from being as productive as I could be, however, it doesn’t always have to be a source of procrastination. It can be a really useful tool for your studies – there are hundreds of revision based apps out there and so I’m going to be talking about the apps that I have on my phone that I use on a daily basis to help me out at college.
Learning to drive can be terrifying. You’re in control of a big scary vehicle and all the power is in your hands… that’s a big deal! After many months, I passed my driving test 2 weeks ago and I am loving life. The stress and tears that went into learning to drive were completely worth it for the independence I now have (driving to college when it’s chucking it down with rain outside is the best).
However, before you can even apply for the practical driving test, you have to get past the theory test. It’s a short test taken at your local centre (you can find all that info out on the DVLA website) that you need to revise for. It’s comprised of a series of multiple-choice questions and a “hazard perception” section, but I’m sure you already knew all of this!
Finding revision techniques that work for you can be a real challenge. I know that it took me a while to really figure out what worked for me. Teachers forcing me to create mindmaps in lessons was not effective, but that doesn’t mean mindmaps won’t be useful for you – it depends on what kind of learner you are. It’s all about trial and error. Some of these methods may be perfect for you, some of them may not work at all – the only way to find out what’s right is to give it a go.
