1. Get organised to tackle the NABs
Because you have NABs (National Assessment Banks) on an ongoing basis, you need to be consistently organised. NABs are graded pass/fail, but in order to get a good grade in the exams at the end of your course, you should be passing these easily. This means you need to plan your study and revision carefully. Our free study planner makes sure that you are allocating a sufficient amount of time to each subject.Sign up to create a revision timetable
2. Create great learning resources
GoConqr gives you the tools to create a whole variety of learning resources: Mind Maps, Notes, Quizzes, Slides, Flowcharts and Flashcards. These can help you learn in different ways, whatever your learning style. Mind Maps are great for laying out a subject study guide to make sure you cover everything, or for planning essays. Flashcards are great for learning vocabulary or things you need to memorise like maths formulae. You can also test your revision before a final exam using a quiz.Sign up to create your own Quiz
