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:
- your bullet journal! This could be a leuchtturm, moleskine, scribbles that matter etc.
- colourful pens (steadtler triplus fineliners are popular but i used staedtler rainbow pens.)
- optional highlighters and washi tape!
1) DECIDE WHAT IS BEST FOR 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.

Loving GEORGIANICOLAOU.CO.UK? Thank you! We recently had a makeover and went self-hosted with SiteGround (the moveover was super easy- i did it myself, thanks to their tutorials) and we could not be happier. They are to thank for the super speed you are experiencing on the site!
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!

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!
I hope you found this post informative and it gave you some helpful tips and tricks on how you can effectively study in your bullet journal. Please make use of my timetable template as it will be a great help!
