I care for all my Muslim Brothers and Sisters, so I am sending this message out on this board to you all...

Starting from the first day of class, let it be five minutes, let it be an hour, but study consistently every day and don't even skip ONE day.

Don't wait until the night before Final Exams, like I am at this very moment as we speak.

imsad

Take this advice and remember me in your duas.

I have exams this month inshaAllaah..But sadly I can't get my head down unless the pressure is REALLY on i.e. the night before and the morning of the exam when I start cramming. SubhaanAllaah, this is something I can't help and it is only the mercy of Allaah (Ta`aalaa) that I get through these exams.

SubhaanAllaah, I do not think I am lazy. I like hard work, both physical and mental. I just don't know what happens when it comes to studying.

^ lol I usually do it on the night of the exam but I'm doing it differently this time :p

This was the scene last year:
I would get comfy in bed with a cup of coffee and suddenly I would get really sleepy so I'd push all my heavy textbooks to the floor and fall asleep :p
OR
It would be late at night so I'd turn the tv on loud(coz the silence was creeepy) and once the floor was all littered with chocolate wrappers I'd try to get down to serious studying..but mum would wake up and think i have been studying for long so she'd just drag me off to bed..while I would try to explain to her that she's been asleep for less than an hour :hmm:

I could read a 700 page novel if I like but..when I'm reading a textbook..I go like "20 pages to go" and mum keeps telling me to stop reading it like a novel :p
And whenever mum would tell me to study I would start reading the novel we had been assigned in english...that explains why I have read it 2 and a half times despite it being hopelessly boring :p

ok. Tomorrow's Chemistry. Finished studying it. Don't know a thing :skeleton:
Am I only person in here who has exams? :heated: :'(

But I got it all figured out. If my result comes out bad, I'll just do what all sensible people do when faced with a difficulty: refuse to get out of bed. I'll just stay in there till everybody forgets I ever had exams....:D

Bro AbdulMajid, cheating in exams is not justified in any case. Radar Systems in not that difficult. A few hours serious study is enough for the whole subject.

And remember, mocking the teachers is a very bad habit. Students who mock the teachers do not benefit from the knowledge. No matter how bad they teach, you must respect them. At least they are your elders.

Bro as a muslim i would advice you to do what the Prophet Sallahu alayhi wa salam would do, as thats the best of advice.
Accepting the guidance of Islam leads a person to truthfulness, which means a person completely avoids cheating, cheating, and back-stabbing. The Prophet of Islam said:

“Whoever bears arms against us is not one of us, and whoever cheats us is not one of us.” (Saheeh Muslim)

According to another report, the Prophet passed by a pile of food in the market. He put his hand inside it and felt dampness, although the surface was dry. He said:

“O owner of the food, what is this?’

The man said, ‘It was damaged by rain, O Messenger of God.’

He said, ‘Why did you not put the rain-damaged food on top so that people could see it! Whoever cheats us is not one of us.” (Saheeh Muslim)
Insha`Allaah that helps bro.

The aim of revision.

The aim is to reduce the amount of information relating to a subject to a series of key-points, any of which you can expand upon in an exam answer. The key point, phrase or word prompts your brain to retrieve the information stored in it. At the end of your revision for each topic or sub-topic, aim to end up with a card or A4 sheet with the KEY points for that section. The structure of revision sessions. Good revision techniques always include:

- An aim for the session. e.g. 'By the end of this two hour revision session I will understand and be able to answer questions on photosynthesis'.

- Thinking about what you know already and identifying the bits you need to spend more time on (usually by doing some sort of self-testing - many revision aids include opportunities for self-testing).

- Breaking down each topic into 'do-able' chunks.

- Revise each section - not just reading the information but doing something active with it (see below)

- Producing notes (shorter each time you revise a particular area) noting key points, phrases or words.

- Testing yourself to see what you have learnt.

- Ticking off the subject on your 'overall list' so that you can see regular progress.

- Revisiting your notes briefly after one day, one week and one month, as well as just before the exam - THIS REALLY WORKS!

The key to effective revision.

- Useful revision involves DOING SOMETHING with the information you are trying to learn and remember. This is ESSENTIAL to allow your brain to learn, make connections and remember. Different people find different activities useful, and you need to find out how you revise best. Some ideas are:· Drawing 'spider maps' on large pieces of paper - to show how different parts of a subject hang together.

- Use pictures and big flip-chart sheets and colour to make posters with key points and display these on the walls or where you will see them regularly.

- Put revision aids up around the house - especially for any 'rote learning' - chemical or mathematical formulae, French verbs – read them when brushing your teeth or eating your breakfast.

- Record yourself making 10 key points about a particular topic, then play it back when you are travelling, running etc

- Highlight key areas of notes or books (if yours), picking out the key points or summaries

- Listen to tapes of e.g. books and plays and discuss them with another person.

- Watch revision DVDs but don't just sit back passively - pause them and make notes of key or difficult areas, test yourself or get someone to watch with you and test each other.

- Read a page and shut the book - what can you remember?

- Tell someone about what you have learned - explain how the heart works over a meal (or perhaps stick to something less gory).

- Get people around you to test you on 'rote knowledge' - have a family quiz.

Memory Techniques.

Find out what helps you to remember stuff. Some ideas are:

- Acronyms (using the first letter of each word to make a word to prompt your memory) e.g. you may find it hard to remember this sentence ' Wholly Inadequate Needless ****ed Outrageous Waste of Space'. However, turn it into an acronym and it becomes much easier: WINDOWS.

- Picture stories (thinking of a strong visual image to associate with each word and linking them together in an unlikely and silly story) e.g. you may find it hard to remember the facts in this sentence, simply by reading it through, 'The great Plague struck London in 1665, followed by the fire of London in 1666, starting in the shop of the baker to King Charles II in Pudding Lane'. Try this out: get a picture (for example) of a large rat (the plague) running around before being burnt (plague year before fire) in a bread oven (bakers shop) with the flames curling up around it like the curls of the numbers 666 (1666), and then being put into a pudding eaten by two King Charles spaniels. Go through the picture sequence a couple of times, and then see if you can remember the 7 facts in the sentence. Ask someone to test you, and see if it works for them.

- Mnemonics are also useful - make up a silly sentence to help you remember the order of something e.g. Never Eat Shredded Wheat (North, East, South, West). Review/Take time occasionally to ask yourself how well your revision techniques are working for you. How much have you covered? Have you stuck to your timetable? Are you ending up with notes you can use for last minute revision? Congratulate yourself for all the subjects you have covered. Change your timetable plan if necessary. Later on when you have revised and revisited each topic, have a go at some old exam questions. Make sure you set the appropriate time limit, and try to work under exam conditions. Don't do this too early (although it's worth looking at them early on to get an idea of the sort of question you will be answering - essays, multiple choice etc.). Do these in plenty of time so that your teacher can mark them.

LOL! I enjoyed how you worded that.

I'll just add to that tip, but please don't assume that I do it, because I don't. I'm only spreading the knowledge... And Insha'Allah will try to implement it myself...:

When learning something new, review it 5 times. The next day, revise it 4 times, the day after, 3 times, the day after 2 times, the day after 1 time. Then once every one or two months, review it all. This is a method I learned in my Ta'lim Al-Muta'allim class. :X
