For a dyslexic student efficient use of time is the key to success when studying for exams. There is so much information to learn in a limited amount of time. You need to pack as much knowledge into your brain as possible.
Reading is generally more time consuming for dyslexic people. You must make sure you are reading the essential material.
You need to find out what questions may come up in the exam, so you know what to revise. There are two ways of doing this (that don’t involve cheating).
When it comes to remembering information for exams you need to establish what knowledge you already have. Just ask yourself before you start each section what do you already know? You will then be able to establish what other information you need to learn.
You want to make your revision notes as concise as possible. The bullet points you write should trigger your memory and knowledge of a particular topic. You will need more bullet points for topics you are less familiar with.
For some exams you may have to remember names, dates and other things that are hard to memorise. If you find some things difficult to remember use one of these techniques. Click here for Memory Techniques.
