HOW TO EFFECTIVELY STUDY IN YOUR BULLET JOURNAL

 Hello everyone, welcome to a brand new Bullet Journal post. For everyone who is still in education, I thought it was best I did a ‘How to Study in you Bullet Journal’ post and with exams finally here the timing could not be better!
You’ve already seen inside this particular bujo (you can see it here if you want to see more.) However, today we are going to be focusing on a particular set of spreads that will help you study effectively in your bullet journal! I’ve also included a freebie template for you for the months of May and June.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

1) DECIDE WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU!

Now you can follow the traditional way and just write a to-do list in your bullet journal under each day. This is totally fine but if you are a visual learner, you would probably prefer seeing the whole month there at a glance. This is good because you can see what subject you are doing each day and what sub topic. Back in May/ June last year I created two spreads that helped me achieve my goals of getting into uni. If they helped me out they can definitely help you.

2) MAKE A TIMETABLE

Like I said, I know I needed something that I can look at instantly and know what I am doing. I adapted my monthly view and just made it into a timetable, like the one below.
Ofcourse you can adapt yours however you would like but I was pleased with mine. As you can see I had a key and colour coded what I would be doing on each day. I would really recommend putting in topic subjects other than just the topic, this will make sure you are covering everything and you can’t move on until you have.

MAKE IT EXCITING!

Make sure to put your exams and deadlines in, too. I didn’t have any that month so I didn’t add any in.

‘Colour code each subject and go into detailed specifics of what you will be revising.’

3) PAST PAPER TIMETABLE AND TRACKER

Then once you’re done with the revision part, I would recommend creating a past paper timetable. THIS SAVED MY LIFE! I would not have gotten the results I did without this timetable. Just like with the revision timetable, make sure you make room for each past paper…maybe twice. This makes sure you know the style of the exam. I also find, especially at university, past paper questions are always repeated… so do the questions!

‘This saved my life! Make sure you can do the past papers at least twice.’
Along with the ‘Past Paper Timetable,’ I would make a tracker to accompany it. As you can see mine consisted of five columns: the name,  first attempt mark, first attempt grade, second attempt mark and second attempt grade. On reflection upon this, I wish I added a column between the first and second attempt that just consisted on what I need to re-revise and check up on.
You’re probably questioning the second attempt but like I said in my ‘How To Get Straight As’ post most of the time examiners repeat questions and you need to know how to answer them.

4) DEADLINE/ ASSIGNMENT TRACKER

Along with exams comes a bunch of assignments. For each assignment make a checklist including:

  • the title of the assignment
  • the due date
  • important notes (eg. the specification of the assignment)
  • tasks that need to be done for it
  • a timeline of what needs to be done (so arrange them- this could be done via priority of size of task)
  • keep a section for feelings and grade expected and achieved!
