MY SUPER UNIQUE LEARNING TIPS!

DSCN4124

Test week is coming up in like 13 days, which means that I will have 4 days of pure horror. In those 4 days I will have 10 hours of tests, on 6 different subject! Mathematics B & D, Chemistry, Physics, English and Religion. Oh and if that isn’t enough, I have to have a Spanish conversation of about 10 minutes in the test week as well.

I’ve started like a week ago, but all I’ve done until now is made a summary of two paragraphs of Chemistry.. I still have to catch up on like 50 exercises of both Mathematics so basically. I’m going to die..

If you don’t want to be like me, maybe you should try out these tips if you have an examweek or anything alike!

 

RECORD
What I do for every Chemistry paragraph is reading it out loud as I’m recording my voice with my IPod. I’ve been doing this for quite a while now, though I have never listened to the recording ever again. Anyway, this is how I learn my chapters of chemistry.

First I read it oud loud and record it. Then I read it again and try to understand everything, then I make a summary and lastly I make the exercises we had to make as homework which I didn’t make because I’m a terrible student.

VIDEOS
You can find videos on pretty much every subject! So if you don’t understand something, or you just want to hear another explenation of it go to Youtube and search! I’ve been doing this for my Mathematics D, with uh Matrixes. Unfortunately I only could find English videos which even made me put in more effort, but it did help me understand!

Also, videos are a lifesafer if you have a.. What do they call it, listening test? Yeah. So for example I have a Spanish listening test once a year, and I suck at listening to Spanish people. So what I did was look op a Spanish Youtuber and I try to click on her videos every once in a while. This way I get entertained and learn from it!

Listening to people speaking a foreign language absolutely helps you understanding what they are saying much better! When I was in Salamanca for a week in some household with about 5 hours of Spanish classes a day, my hearing abilities definitely got better! Unfortunately it has already faded away a bit but that’s why I have my Youtube!

EXPLAIN
If you can explain the history of some war, or how matrixes work, you understand the curriculum. Wow, I’ve never even heard of that Curry-word before. Anyway, just keep trying to explain everything you need to learn and once you can sum it all up you are ready to go!

REWARD
After a while of studying, you need to take a break. The way I relax is putting on one of my favorite youtubers, or painting a tiny bit of my Charmander. Either way, it’s somehow rewarding yourself for the little bit you’ve learned.

What I shouldn’t do is putting gummy bears or any sort of candy on the end of a paragraph, you know. You’ve probably seen it on Instagram or Tumblr or anything. I already have eaten all the gummy bears before I’ve put them at the ends of paragraphs..

GOALS
If I’m not going over this year, my world is over. I know I can do this niveau of education and I like the subjects I’ve chosen. Only if I made my homework everytime I would go over to year 5 easily. I would disappoint myself so badly if I didn’t make it, and that’s what stimulates me to learn and study a bit early. Normally I would’ve started learning for the testweek, one day before the first test. Literally!

If I use that strategy now, in the fourth year out of six on VWO.. No, that won’t work. What will work? Studying.

 

Do you have study tips?

 

Cooper test at EP.

Hey guys. So today is one of those days on which I will let everything that has been on my mind out. Today the subject is cooper test or cooper run test. This is a test at which you’ll have to run for 12 minutes straight and you’ll have to run for a certain distance to get a good grade.

Well, let me explain you this. I suck. I suck at gymnatics, I suck at football, I suck at basketball. But most of all, I suck at running. I get out of breath so easily and when I run I start focussing on the sound of me breathing which even makes things harder.

But as soon as I stop running, I feel calm again. My little brother told me this means that I breath wrong, but I’m not sure whether to believe that because it sounds dorky. How could I breath incorrectly?

Anyway, I ran a distance of 1550 meters.. This is like terribly bad. It’d be rated Very Bad. For my age and gender, 1800 meters would be rated Bad (I believe) and from like 2100 meters you’d be on the right track.

But hey, like I said before. I’m going to start fitnessing so at least I’m trying to achieve something..

WHo else hates these kinds of tests at EP?

UPDATE { Less posts :( }

Hey guys, if you follow my blog you might have noticed I haven’t been posting much lately. One word, 6 letters. School. Things are getting more serious since I’m a grade higher and stuff, and I really am motivated to work well on my schoolwork so this is mainly why I upload less these days.

SPRING IS IN THE AIR?!

5

Yes! Winter’s moving away and Spring is coming closer! With 61oF, 16oC is the sun shining at this very moment. Of course I’m sitting outside, enjoying the sunshine. It’s not that you can sit outside with only a t-shirt, that’s a bit too cool. But I’m wrapped in a blanket, and it’s perfect this way. Mom suggested I should sit outside for some minutes, because I’m pale. I’m such a righteous girl, haha. I came up with some to-do ideas, for when you’re bored and weather’s like here.
