speak it out loud

you'll be 50% more likely to remember something if you speak it out loud

take notes

writing something out is the memory equivalent of reading it seven times

before every exam i always write down the most important information to have everything i need to know for my exam in one place and it helps me a lot so if you don't already do that, give it a try!

take breaks

studies have shown that 30-50 minute sessions with 10 minute breaks work the best, maybe even set a timer if you're as forgetful as i am!

use different colors/ markers

maybe try to use specific colors for different things (depending on the subject you're studying for) like people, events etc.

study with a buddy

many people prefer to study with their friends, it does really help to explain something to another person as well!

when you're taking your exam and you don't know the answer to a question, try to read it in your teacher's voice! it may sound weird to you now, but definitely give it a try. your brain actually reacts to known voices so it might help you!
