We had our first exams today and we have languages and bio tomorrow. Do you have any specific ways of approaching such content heavy classes?

Are you a visual learner? If yes, use mind maps. For me, I read and print the BioKnowledgy notes and my Oxford textbook and fill in the gaps in the slides that my textbook has but not the slides. And then write index cards (cue cards) and summary notes. Must be disciplined! Good luck for your exams!! @ioanna_n.

@stefania hey! Since it’s just an end of the year exam for us, our teacher used questions from several different years. Sorry! Best of luck!!
