    Do you have any study skills tips for teenagers preparing for exams?

    (I have already suggested having a revision timetable and going over things more than once to consolidate them in the mind.)

    Put things you need to remember to music or catchy tunes that you can easily remember. This works especially well for lists of things you have to keep in order.
    Also, suck on peppermints, particularly right before the exam, because it helps focus and kick starts the brain.

      Hi SunnyR -I like this idea about putting things to music - do you mean you make rhymes and put them on a tape and listen back to it, or do you do it some other way I wonder? 

      Many thanks for the tip about peppermints - will look into this further.

    You can't really answer this question. Everybody learns, and studies, if a different way. I, for example, can't study. When learning something I make sure I have a firm grasp on it, because if I try any of the "normal" study techniques before a test, it's pretty much a guarantee I will mix things up.

      A firm understanding from the outselt is important.  In this respect I encourage my teenager to ask questions and check understanding in class when the topic is delivered.  Will remind her to do this.  Many thanks Sapper.

    It is good that you have a study timetable, that is the foundation. Now stick to it. When the timetable says its time for a particular subject, read something on that subject. To keep boredom at bay, draw diagrams, tables pictures on that subject besides reading even if you have very nice ones already. Always do something related to that subject as per the timetable. Even re-writing notes that you already have will help to internalise the subject. If you can work with a classmate, it will help to test each other's knowledge with questions or tests that you design yourselves. That way you will know which areas of study need more effort. Good luck with your studies.

      Many thanks for sharing all these tips Emmanuel - in particlar drawing diagrams sounds a great idea which I think will appeal to my teenager.

    If you can find out which body or company or organisation is setting your exam papers. Go back and search for past exam papers for the course you are doing. The exam papers of the past like 2011, 2010, 2009, will give you an idea of the types of questions you are likely to be asked.
    Also try to find out how you will be examined. Will the exams be written or verbal. If it is a written exam then try and find out also if you are expected to answer questions or if your exam paper will be a combination of question and short answer and also essay questions. I think overall looking at past exam papers for the course you are doing will reveal the most about what you should expect when you exam comes round.
    I hope that this makes sense and I wish you all good success in your forthcoming exams.
