What You Need To Form A Study Group
1. Think Outside The Comfort Zone
- Your friends will talk to you anyway; get together a group of people you don’t know so that you get new angles of perspective.
2. Keep It Small
- 3 is alright but 4 is ideal as you can pair off. 6 is the minimum.
- Anymore, you have too many opinions and not enough time for everyone to have meaningful question time.
3. Outline a plan of action
- You’re got your study guide, so plan your meeting accordingly.
- Decide how long each meeting will be, how much you’ll cover and who will be responsible for what.
- Tip: Pick up a regular time and don’t make exceptions. It’s too difficult to accommodate the needs of half of a dozen people.
4. Pick a good place
- Quiet, not interrupted by music or friends.
5. Take turns to be a teacher
- Explaining a topic to someone else is the best way to find out what you know and what you don’t.
- Take turns to present topics. When it’s your turn, share your notes.
6. Plan for exam revisions
- Once you’re used to each other, you’ll find it helpful to revise for exams too.
- So plan one session to predict what will come up in the exams and one/two more sessions to revise the trickiest concepts.
