Welcome back to the 5th instalment of the psychology opportunities blog series.
I hope everyone has had a productive Swot Vac week. If not, there is still plenty of time for those who are fortunate enough to have their exams later in the period. I for one still have the bulk of my study to do 🙂
As such, for this weeks blog I thought it might be handy to quickly list some study tips and resources.
The first thing worth mentioning is the evidence-based learning method of distributed practice. This involves multiple learning sessions which are sufficiently spaced apart to test your memory across time. This is essentially blocked study sessions, which have been shown to be more efficient than one longer session, which typically results in cramming. Some other techniques worth mentioning are the Cornell-note taking method and concept mapping. More information on these techniques can be found in our first-year survival guide, which can be found here: https://www.flinderspsychologystudents.com
Secondly, I wanted to point out the Exam Strategies for Success blog written by one of our committee members which goes over 6 different strategies for exam revision. It’s really quite helpful, go check it out here.
That concludes the study tips and resources, I hope these are useful. Best of luck to all with their exams!
Now, for the opportunities listing.
