Every learner is familiar with the term ‘study skills.’ But not everyone really knows or understands what they are or why they matter. After all, if your grades are pretty good why you should worry about improving your study skills?

Its important because its very rare we are good at everything, and a little guidance here and there can always help.

What we have provided here are a range of approaches to learning that improve your ability to study, and to retain and recall information.

Some people are naturally good at time management but may struggle in other areas such as essay writing. Another learner may be great at taking notes but isn’t great at putting a concept into their own words. To be able to really do your best in your studies and easily demonstrate your learning, you need to spend time developing your study skills.

We also take a moment to reflect on you and your well being. Exams are stressful at the best of times, especially when they are work related. You need to make sure you are ready to take an exam, and are in the right place mentally to do so.
