The ImmoJeune team is here to give you some advice to help you succeed in your written and oral exams and not do it at the last minute! You are about to start your revisions and you do not know how to do it? Get out your best pencil, this article is made for you!
Taking ownership of one's courses
That's the case for everyone, at the end of the year, you accumulate tons and tons of copies and you wonder where to start? Let's talk about it! It is always recommended to summarize your courses in order to make them your own! You've probably already heard this little speech by one or more of your teachers, maybe even your family or friends, and you should know that they haven't lied to you! A lesson that you remember is a lesson that you wrote yourself with your own words and your own thoughts on the subject. The benefit will be twofold: It will allow you to summarize your lessons and make them less indigestible when you learn them, but most of all, you will start to know them without even realizing it! Creating your own course by writing a summary will ultimately allow you to organize yourself in your revisions. It will make it much clearer what lessons you need to learn and how to organize yourself to learn them best.
Since we know that an example is always more telling, we have taken the initiative to create a revision sheet that will work for all subjects! The idea is simple: Extract the most important elements from your course and write them down on your worksheet. A quick and simple method that will make it much easier for you to remember your course, whether it's complex or not.
Defining good working conditions
A lot of people prefer to work quietly, in groups, with or without music. It is important for you to create an optimal work space that will allow you to be as efficient as possible. Don't hesitate to ask your classmates if you are one of those who like to work in a group. Sharing with others allows you to better retain the elements that pose problems and to ink-in more the elements that you already know by heart. It will not only be more enjoyable than studying on your own, it will also be much more fun!
You can also set up games: Question and answer quizzes, riddles, answers to complete... are all possibilities to work in a good mood while retaining the course without even feeling like you're working! Pretty nice, isn't it?
Setting up a schedule
The other crucial step in this review period is to draw up a detailed plan of what you need to learn, and when. This will allow you to see more clearly what you have already learned and what you still need to learn. Setting goals and sticking to them is the key to effective revision!
You will be able to define moments of relaxation, which will motivate you even more to work! You are always more motivated to finish a task when you know that a reward is coming behind! It's like the carrot at the end of the stick! And there's nothing more fun than that.
As before, we wanted to offer you a simple and clear standard timetable that will allow you to structure your days. You will thus be able to be delighted to see registered that Tuesday between 12h and 14h you go out to lunch with friends, or even that you have all your evenings free during the week. So what do you start with?
As every year, many students revise their baccalaureate exams by working on subjects that have fallen out in previous years! It's a very good way to prepare yourself! It will not only allow you to effectively revise a subject or part of your course, but will also familiarize you with the format of the exams you will encounter. Don't forget to keep an eye on current topics! Very often, some of the key topics that have been in the news during your senior year will fall by the baccalaureate.
You can also prepare for the oral exams by reciting your lesson to friends and family. Also ask yourself the right questions about the content of your course: What questions might come up? What kind of answers could I give? And also ask your friends what their predictions are.
Keeping time for yourself
Now that you have done well and realize that you're pretty much on schedule for the upcoming exams, you need to keep some time for yourself. That is why it is important to organize yourself so that you can see more clearly how much time you can give to your hobbies. Being able to give yourself time to do what you like to do, to go out with friends, to take time for your family and for yourself, will make it easier for you to accept this hard and long period of revision.
