My favourite method of study:
Add little post-it notes and colours = Highlighting the important points in your notes and articles goes a long way as some points may be irrelevant information.
Draw diagrams whenever possible! = Examination markers do prefer diagrams and a graphic representation of your thoughts. This is also great in essay planning
Useful tips I can suggest for you:
When reading articles, I learnt a valuable tip from @thecatalystinme (a blog I highly recommend for prospective or current biological science students)
Try splitting the article you are reading into sections:
4) What did they do?
5) What did they find?
Always remember the reasons of why you are reading the article. Skimming through the abstract and conclusion can save you a lot of time when studying!
Also remember to take breaks whilst you are studying.
A little refreshing walk outside can calm and clear your mind 🙂
