My school exams are on currently and i'm being forced to revise. I hate revision so I always try to avoid it somehow but i keep getting caught watching programs on the computer so i've resorted to UG on the nintendo DS internet browser, hidden behind my book, which is really slow. So i was wondering, what do you guys do to avoid revision if your forced to?

I usually just sit and do nothing. Sometimes I'll think about how I'm potentially screwing myself over, but that goes away eventually.

I'm doing that right now. I revise for half an hour and then get bored and do something else for a couple of hours then revise for half hour and so on so forth until it gets late and I panic and revise until midnight. I know that's going to be the case today. Man I hate maths.

I've never really revised properly but I passed every single high school year, and I actually got this little tiny bonus thing in 7th form as well so I didn't JUST scrape through.

What I used to do though is, sit down and read a page or two of notes, then read the important fact bits again a few times, saying them over so I get them straightened out in my head. Then, get up, start doing something else, but constantly try to remember exactly what the facts were, going back over them quickly if you need to. Basically, it's a form of very interrupted fact-based learning; I did it with music a lot too.

I find it works well actually, because it very realistically prepares your mind for real-world situations where you'll be using your mind. Because you're constantly stabbing away at the facts, each iteration has a larger impact and so you're more likely to remember it emotionally, which helps to recognise and remember things later on. In the real world, when you're trying to solve problems, things are very interruptive and often happen in jolts, so learning facts like that better prepares your mind for situations like that.

It works for tests too because of the emotional tie it forms, where you remember the (often) unusual feelings you had when learning the facts, and then create the connection using that.

EDIT: This works fairly well in limited time spaces as well because you can cement stuff in over a relatively short amount of time. Though after very long periods of time (weeks, or anything longer), you totally forget the stuff usually, so beware. But if you can dig up those emotional memories you then revitalise the facts also, so there's that too.

i try to procrastinate constructively - ie, during the last weeks of term, i binged all my coursework so that i didn't have to start revising yet, then there's the washing and tidying. Now, when i actually need to revise, the key is to find something important that you want to do even less than revision, and hence you can easily revise, as you are actually procrastinating, not revising.

I do this sometimes, but I do try to get some revision done, because if I don't do any, I'm screwed.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.
