It’s exam season as you probably know and we have already written a post about Best way to be organised for school (at home and at school). We wanted to a exam special blog post, on 5 ways to use our app to help you revise for exams.
- Use the timer for practicing speaking exams
On the app on the iOS version you can use a function called timer, this could be really helpful if you have a capped time on how long you can talk on a speaking exam, or you want to set yourself a target on how long you revise for on each subject. It could really help you to stop looking at your phone or laptop clock to see if your time is up on each subject. You can actually save your countdowns, if you are going to revise for something a lot and you may spend less time of it then save it for later so you don’t have to reset it. May help to stay focused on the subject at hand.
- Use sticky notes to remind yourself how far you have revised.
When you add events to your timeline, and baring in mind you have got the full version of the app of course you can add sticky notes to them. This could help if you easily forget how many topics you covered whilst revising. If you prefer leaving notes on your phone it could make more sense to add those notes to the countdown of the subject. Also you could write down what you plan to do next as well.
- Events already added to your phone
So you might have been handed a sheet full of your exams and you might have been emailed to your social email all your exam dates. Why not add the dates for exams that might be already on your calendar to the app. Its really simple go on to the calendar tab on the app, this is the same for either version of the app. You will see a load of events on the calendar, add the exams you need to revise for and they will go straight to your timeline.
- Add events to your timeline and personalize them
Alternatively, you can add events by doing it yourself through the app. Easily add events, set the time and date on them and why not make it a bit less boring to revise by adding your own images to them. You could add inspirational images or just leave it on calendar format. Whatever way you feel will help you to stay motivated for your topic you are revising.
- Set auto reminders for every event
So once you added all your events make sure you have auto set as your reminder choice, this way you will be notified on the day and the run up to your exams. You will get sent Push Notifications this way. This can help to understand how long you have left till the exam and if you can revise as much as you need to for it.
