Top 5 Study Methods

The Blurting method:

This method essentially blurts out information which means that you blurt out information from your memory on a topic you need to work on until you stop forgetting whatever it is you are supposed to blurt from your memory. This method can be traced back to 2017 by UnJaded Jade. She brought it to her attention as she used it to study for GCSEs and A levels, achieving the highest marks. Many students, past and present, claim it has helped them reach their highest potential.

Pomodoro Technique:

The Pomodoro Technique was developed in the late 1980s by then-university student Francesco Cirillo. Cirillo needed help focusing on his studies and completing assignments. Feeling overwhelmed, he asked himself to commit to just 10 minutes of focused study time. Encouraged by the challenge, he found a tomato (pomodoro in Italian) shaped kitchen timer, and the Pomodoro technique was born. The 25-minute stretches broken down by 5-minute breaks allow for intense focus, helping distracted people. It combats distractions making it highly effective.

The Feyman Technique:

The Feynman Technique, developed by Richard Feynman, is a method of learning through teaching. To use the technique, students choose a topic and explain it in their own words as if teaching a sixth-grader. They improve their explanations and repeat the process until they master the topic. As opposed to rereading textbooks, this method allows the student to be more engaged by continuously simplifying matters.

Leitner's study method:

Sebastian Leitner invented the technique in 1972. The Leitner system is based on flashcards; Box 1 is where they go by default. Once they are reviewed, you can change their placement depending on whether you can answer the information written on the card. This method is really effective as it utilizes spaced repetition and emphasizes those cards that need the most attention. This results in a well-optimized learning schedule.

Mind mapping:

When the term "mind mapping" was coined by Tony Buzan on BBC's Use Your Head in 1974, how we take notes, brainstorm and study changed forever. Organizing your notes around the central topic allows you to branch out your individualized ideas. Mind maps appeal to your senses with their flowing layout and other visual elements. These can include images and colored text, adding emphasis and ensuring you remember your notes.
