Re: how do u memorize ur social studies notes???

love SEQ.
trying hard for SBQ.
SEQ i don't memorise..
I memorise = Blank in exam.
Normally I relax..
U taking O level this yr too?
Some of my friends use mindmap..
For me I don't find it useful..
I normally read my handwritten notes,touch my laptop,listen to music..
then I managed to get my notes into my brain..

Hmm the main word is RELAX.
RELAX
ROUGHLY READ THROUGH UR TEXT BK
Read ONLY the MAIN PTS
USE your mind to further elaborate!

Re: how do u memorize ur social studies notes???

normally i will summarize as much as i can..
then make notes using different color pens so that memorising the stuffs wont be so boring and easier to remember too.

Re: how do u memorize ur social studies notes???

When I was in secondary school, my teacher gave us notes in table / template form... So it's like easier to remember. I would suggest that you register key points / headings (as in the factors), then explain in your own words. It must be a continuous effort, so that by the time you are in for the national exams, you would have already mastered the content. JY all! =)

Re: how do u memorize ur social studies notes???

i rmb all the thing , as "key point" is as good as almost every big and small single details which is required to score well in SS. Just work hard on memorizing and u will find out that u eventually could recall every single detail easily, it would be best if u find the details interesting which could help u understand the link between the points making it easier to remember.

Re: how do u memorize ur social studies notes???

my teacher used to give us acronyms for each separate topic.. it helped me a lot but yah go for exam than some time blank.... the best way i found was to understand the topic, study the main points and than write in your own words..... but make sure u remember the main point accurately....... once u know wat to write time ur self and write the answer on a paper tat how i did for my 'O's last year.... practice makes perfect....

Re: how do u memorize ur social studies notes???

Memorise? So easy........just read lah. Why need to memorise! SS is the easiest subject to remember cos all you have to do is picture all the events!

Really got nothing to memorise! Just visualise!

Re: how do u memorize ur social studies notes???

SS is not about notes. SS is about answering techniques. you may be able to memorise everything, but so long as you can't master the techniques, you will never get your A.

as far as i know (well, my teacher said i can do it, at least), you are allowed to use outside information (e.g. information and examples not constrained in the textbook) for social studies. so long as you know your answering techniques, you can smoke your way through. but if you don't, then... :d

Re: how do u memorize ur social studies notes???

some examples you can memorise, but please do by understanding (:
It is good to memorise essays too, I cannot say it is totally wrong,
hahax
Basically how do I familarise with the questions and how do I managed to remember?
I speak to wall, [eg..read out the notes out loud]
then do some simple writting of it.
