school tips because it's that time of year again:
• fourth years and above especially, read your textbook ahead of the lesson. make some notes and try to understand the content. this helps because you'll be able to answer questions confidentially and if there was something you didn't understand the first time reading, you get to learn it again in class.
• don't spend hours rewriting notes. instead, rewrite or highlight key points and summarise this into mind maps. they're easier to visualise and you can really focus on the parts you need to learn.
• i like to use class notes for making quizlets, and it really helps to keep on top of making these. (quizlet is a flashcard app and you can test yourself many ways on there). by exams you'll have everything ready, you just have to go through it.
• in sixth form bring a day folder and keep all your relevant topic work in it. transfer this to a subject folder once you're done with that topic.
• you can focus better once you've done some exercise (and you're grateful of the chance to sit down and pour over books for a few hours). try to get up and move every hour, it'll help concentration.
• use the time before the school day to study. this is typically when i make mind maps and go through pre reading before everyone else arrives. getting up early has its benefits but don't overwork yourself by 8am!
• if you got a good mark on an essay and have a similar assignment coming up, note down your structure to reuse, or anything that might be transferable between the pieces.
• vaseline then perfume makes the scent last all day
• try not to wear makeup everyday
• if your hair is greasy and you haven't time to fix it, wash the front sections and it'll do for a few hours.
• compliment other people's outfits, and if someone gets a good mark on a piece of work, congratulate them
• don't be afraid of asking questions in class, or talking to teachers. it's their job to help, they want to!
• try and be consistently on top of work all year, it just saves time and you won't have to rush anything catching up
• have a Spotify playlist for school to get you in the mood for revision
if anyone has more tips add them! good luck this year, and i hope you enjoy it :)

I am so disappointed in myself, I knew I did bad in my exams but I didn't expect it to be this bad, I will fail my gcses at this rate
You had a bad time now but that doesn't mean you can't change things. Next times you can do a better job.
If you can talk to your teachers and do some extra work to change the grade, go and ask them.
Don't assume you'll fail something just because you didn't do as you expected now. You still have time to learn from your mistakes, study and improve your abilities and knowledge.
Take a short break to feel better and after that analyze what you could work on to improve yourself.
Get some tea or hot chocolate and a snack. Hope you feel better soon!

We’re going to discuss
Identifying Burnout Symptoms
Dealing with Burnout
Preventing Pre-Exam Anxiety
Taking a Break
Getting Back to Work
Feeling easily agitated/Impatient
Loss of productivity
Dread of work
What do you enjoy?
Dress up, even when you're tired. Research shows that students were 7.5x more likely to be productive when they'd put on an outfit they felt comfortable in.
Set a routine. Wake up at the same time everyday. Drink a glass of water. Brush your teeth. Neaten your hair. Style your hair.
Plan your day down to the very last minute. If you know exactly what you're doing, and when you're doing it, you reduce your chances of straying (and thereby reduce guilt from not being productive)
12 habits that make anxiety worse
Reaching for sugar
Not taking breaks
Not drinking water
Lack of sleep
It’s important to understand that taking a break does not mean you're being unproductive. It is just as important to keep the mind occupied with alternatives. Here are some examples:
unsubscribe your e-mail
back up your computer
book an online workshop
read/write a book
do your laundry
You could also tend your garden, sew on missing buttons, join a book club, or watch a TEDtalk.
catch up on your favourite show
make a list of recipes
make yourself a salad
colour in a picture
change your bed linen
start a gratitude journal
plan outfits of the week
research restaurants/ small businesses in your area
Getting back to work
put on a comfortable outfit.
wash your face.
tidy your hair.
grab a drink.
grab some water.
make sure you've eaten well.
get out all the textbooks/resources you require for the subject you intend to study.
open to a topic you enjoy/are good at.
just begin! you're very likely to get in a productive mood if you just start.
special thanks to sophie @myhoneststudyblr and violet @philology-studies for their feedback and suggestions!

So, I was studying for my finals and reading the bit in Snorri’s Edda about Ragnarok and at one point a wolf swallows the moon and it says “og gerir sá og mikið ógagn”. Now, I understand that the meaning of the words have changed a bit over time and all that, but to a modern Icelandic speaker, this just sounds like “one of the wolves took the moon, which was unhelpful”

Why do we still have exams in our curriculum? Not just in the middle of a pandemic, in general too?
School systems are ableist, it's a painful truth we all know. But online exams, and just exams in general, take it to another level of ableism.
Exams are supposed to test a person's intelligence, but in truth, for the most part it just tests a student's memory, while demanding undivided attention from them for hours at length, and basing their general societal worth on it.
I'm a neurodivergent person, and it is an absolute torture to make myself focus on the paper or the screen for so long, let alone the new proctoring system that tracks your eye movement. The amount of anxiety and stress from that alone is enough to give me panic attacks, often during the exam itself.
I got four warnings today in a 1 hour mock test that I was making too much eye movement. While having a panic attack. I'm terrified of exams because it's literally the most high stress situation I can imagine, without any way for me to stim, or manage otherwise.
It's very possible for people to have bad memories. Or be unable to focus for so long. And saying assignments are not enough is stupid. Of course it is, if you do it right. Tell students their final grades depend on assignments and how thorough they are, and give them enough time. I can guarantee that the results will be great.
We are trained from childhood that exams are the way to test us, and failing it means either you didn't try enough or you're stupid, when in reality it's a pointless ableist concept.

1. Make a chapter checklist
before you begin taking notes, it's a good idea to make a checklist for the chapter. (here's a hack: most textbooks come with a ‘checklist’, usually mentioned on the first page of each chapter). If your textbook doesn't have it, don't worry! just make a list of all the topics and subtopics on a piece of paper, and try to group them under a heading.
2. Glance over the topics
Take a look at all the topics and subtopics in each chapter. This’ll give you an idea about how the chapter’s going to go, and also help you plan out your notes. Before you begin taking notes, flip through the chapter so you can mentally visualise the course of information.
3. Don't just copy the text
make sure you're not just copying text word for word from your book. instead, read the text, and write down what you've understood from it. it's a much more effective method of note taking, because it involves conscious thought to process and make sense of the information.
4. Don't take notes after each line
this is something i used to do ALL the time. similar to the previous point, when you jot down notes after each line of text, you're not actively processing information, which makes it easy to forget in a short duration of time. instead, what i like to do is read a page, and write down what i remember and have understood. later, i go back and add any information i might have missed.
5. Make Mindmaps
A mind map is a visual way to present and organize ideas. It adds structure to the way you brainstorm, and helps illustrate information. isn't it fun to look at little drawings or diagrams while you study? a mindmap does exactly that. it helps to link information and bridge the gaps in your knowledge.

I haven’t been active on Tumblr for almost 3 years apart from the occasional lurk. I thought I would just share the set up for my Employment Law exam revision 💜
