For a lot of Year 12 students, the hardest part of the final exams is knowing how to prepare for them. “What should I be studying?”, “how often should I be studying?”, “will I ever be ready for exams?”. If you’ve asked yourself one of these questions, we’ve got the answer… Atomi’s 2021 study plans and timetables.
Designed by our team of high achievers, Atomi’s study plans and timetables will get you on the right track leading into your final exams. They'll help direct your study, make sure you understand all your material and are well prepared for any exam question that might come your way 🙌
So, how does it work?
For each subject, we have a timetable and complementary study plan. The timetables map out when you should be studying, and the study plan details what content you need to cover in each study session.
Our study plans cover the six weeks before each exam, broken down into 3x two week blocks. These blocks build on each other, moving from revision to practice to past paper practice sessions. This way, you know you have all of your content covered and are prepared for any question.
We haven't allocated time to learn the content or write notes — we're assuming you've got that covered 😉 If you don't, take some time to go through your notes and make sure they're complete first before starting this 6 week schedule. We’ve written up a guide for making sure your notes are in order so check that out too!
5-6 weeks out from your exam, it’s time to revise your content.
This means revisiting each topic in the syllabus so the content is fresh in your mind. For each study session, you can revisit your notes and then complete Atomi’s multi-choice quizzes as you go (we’ve even linked each lesson on the study plan, so you can find them with ease).
In doing this, you can tick off each topic in the syllabus and identify any gaps in your knowledge. If there’s a concept you don’t quite understand or a topic you’re struggling with, be sure to rewatch the relevant Atomi lessons and ensure you have it covered before moving on.
3-4 weeks out from your exam, it’s time to start practising answering questions. This will allow you to test your ability to interpret questions and recall the relevant content.
Completing short-answer questions for each topic will ensure you have the entire syllabus covered. To achieve this, you can use Atomi’s short-answer questions and those from your textbooks or class. It’s also a good idea to review any past assessments, re-answering questions you didn't do so well in and asking your teachers for feedback on how you can improve.
Practice paper block
1-2 weeks out from your exam, you’ll be ready to sit some practice papers.
This means sitting down and completing a paper from start to finish, under exam conditions. Doing this will ensure you’re prepared for any type of question, help to refine your exam skills and increase your confidence before going into the exam.
If you need a little more guidance on exactly how to sit a practice paper under exam conditions, we have a full guide here.
