So far I have about 29 days till the end of school. This means 26 days till final exams begin! I'm excited about it because i want it to end! I want summer to be here. Tips for revising lit portfolios and for organizing my study time properly would be very helpful! :)

That's probably because REM sleep increases your capacity to retain information.

to see how that applies to other species, too!

I find that mind maps are a really good way to revise.

Mind maps may not work for you - everyone's mind works differently.

Another good thing is to have a revision timetable, to help you stay focussed. Remember to take regular breaks, otherwise you won't concentrate properly.

i find working in 45 minute sessions helpfull because your brain can only concentrate for that amount of time
