HOW TO EFFECTIVELY STUDY IN YOUR BULLET JOURNAL

 Hello everyone, welcome to a brand new Bullet Journal post, which I am so excited for. As you know, this blog is heavily BuJo focused as you can see from it's own tab and the fact that all of my most popular posts are BuJo related. Did I mention they are also my favourites to write?
This post is going to be all about what the bullet journal is fundamentally for: keeping you organised. You've already seen inside this particular bujo (you can see it here, if you missed it.) Today's post is 'How to Effectively Study in Your Bullet Journal.' Oh and I've included a little freebie template for you.

Now you can follow the traditional way and just write a to-do list under each day. This is totally fine but I am more visual and I like seeing the whole month there at a glance and I want to know what subject and what topic within that subject I am doing each day. Back in May/ June last year I created to spreads that helped me achieve my goals of getting into uni. If it helped me out it can definitely help you. 

'Colour code each subject and go into detailed specifics of what you will be revising.'
 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 this.
Ofcourse you can adapt yours however you would like but I was pleased with mine.Originally I had two timetables; one was on my wall but my mum threw that away. That one was the key player. Like the past paper timetable above, it was colour coded (the same colours) to each module and that one went into specifics of what I would be revising on that specific day. Eg. Monday 21st: acids and bases and homeostasis.
What you would find with a timetable is that you need to have something completed before you move on, otherwise the whole thing messes up.
Then once you're done with the revision part, I would recommend creating a past paper timetable (see the benefits of studying past papers here.) 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 saved my life! Make sure you can do the past papers at least twice.'
TRACK YOUR PAST PAPER RESULTS
Along with the 'Past Paper Timetable,' I would make a tracker to accompany it. As you can see mine consisted of five columns: the name,  first attempt mark, first attempt grade, second attempt mark and second attempt grade. On reflection upon this, I wish I added a column between the first and second attempt that just consisted on what I need to re-revise and check up on. 
You're probably questioning the second attempt but like I said in my 'How To Get Straight As' post most of the time examiners repeat questions and you need to know how to answer them.


Well 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!

Do you use your BuJo to study? Do you have anything else to add to these tips?
