RMIT study tips
At RMIT our courses are designed to prepare you for success, expose you to new ideas and equip you with skills and knowledge to succeed in your chosen career.
[Various students] - My best study tip is to try out lots of different ways. Work out what works best for you, for me it's repetition.
Studying on a weekly basis so I don't have to cram just before exams, makes life so much easier.
Best exam study tip would have to be to ask lots of questions.
Never leave your job at the last minute.
Make sure that you're prepared for your exam or your assignment.
And make it fun, put the effort in and make it something that you're proud of.
Make sure that you're keeping some sort of balance in your lifestyle.
Have enough sleeping time, so you can have better performance in the exam.
Don't leave it till the night before, write yourself a to do list, so you're not stressing at the last minute.
Once you get that feeling of checking off the list, it helps you to just really organise and be more on top of your study load.
Go to your classes, and the lecturers will give you little hot tips all the way through the semester.
Definitely using mnemonic techniques. I definitely use acronyms that really help me as well as chunking.
Take the 10 or 15 minutes on the tram on the way into class to just have a look over what we're gonna do that day.
When you get an assignment just take it home, and think on it for a week, think about what you really, really want to do and what's important.
When I'm studying for exams I try to structure my day as if it's a work shift.
Be consistent throughout the year, it's an old one but it's really the most effective.
Look at past exams and really study them, and really get a good grasp of what they expect you to know and answer.
If you jot down all you study notes and then record yourself and listen to it when you're falling asleep, listen to it in the car.
My best exam strategy is to start early because what happens is you feel prepared.
Reread your notes and your briefs once a week, maybe at the end of the week after your classes and just refresh what you've learnt through the week.
It sounds tacky but... and it also rhymes, but it is, "know what you need to succeed".
