MID-TERMS BEFORE X-MAS!

Recommended Posts

I'm a freshman in IB, and I need some study tips for my mid-terms! I've been invited to study parties, etc. but I wonder what I should do! Thank you, and happy holiday's!

Study in your own time prior to the 'party' and actually discuss questions you have when you are there. Even if you don't have questions, listening to others' discussions helps i.e. make sure you don't veer off topic too often. :S

I agree with moneyfaery. Definitely make sure you have a solid understanding of all concepts before you go to the study groups, or else you could risk veering off topic and wasting time. Otherwise, use study groups as a way to review and learn about your weaknesses.

We did a study group together in a group of 3 once. What we did was that we assigned each person one topic, and then that person taught the rest of the group that topic. So for example, if you were studying for History, one person would teach everyone else the process of collectivization in Stalin's Russia, another person would do Russian Foreign policy during the Cold War and the last one could do the Russian Revolution.

Don't have large groups studying together, as then it gets distracting and everyone has too many questions and it becomes chaotic. 3 or 4 is best, since then you can also work in pairs.

Maybe you could also use the opportunity to test each other orally on the topics after you've revised. Read questions to one another and keep doing it until you get it right.
