Do Your Study Skills Need Polishing?!

We found a useful website called Get Better Grades Now.  If essays and assignments are getting on top of you, you might lessen the stress by working out where things are going right, and where things could be improved.

For a start, this blog author reminds us to "chunk it down". A clumsy expression, but it basically means breaking down assignments into bite-sized "chunks".  Start small, work out the steps you need to take to complete that assignment, then decide which step has to come first.

  • NB  The Whittaker Library at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland has books on study skills (click HERE), as well as the usual books on music, dance, drama, film and TV.  Ask us!
