Slide 2

    Map Out your Curriculum
    When you begin studying using Mind Maps, a good starting point is to take the time to map out your curriculum. Do this for every subject, class, and exam. Put the title of each subject/class in the central node and then add in the sections that you are going to cover during the term. Having this plan in place from the beginning of term is the first step in organising your study properly. This plan will make the next steps in your revision easier to follow and focus on.The Mind Map on the left is a great example of how you can use this tool to create an overview of a subject.

Slide 3

    Once you have a curriculum overview in place, you need to delve deeper into individual topics which are featured in it’s nodes. To do this, take a topic from your overview and focus on this area by starting a new Mind Map by building out the theory. When you do this for all sections of your subject curriculum, you will have a comprehensive set of study notes you can refer to at any time. This will also allow you to understand your curriculum in much greater detail.

    Create Sample Answers
    One of the best ways to prepare for an exam is to create sample answers. When it comes to sample essay answers, you can get great practice by using Mind Maps. Replicate the same structure of an English essay in a Mind Map. Each node can be a paragraph and each strand can outline one full idea in detail. Planning in this way will lead to better work.

    Sharing With Your Classmates
    If you split up your subjects with your classmates you can cover the course much quicker. Once you have all your areas covered, share them amongst one another. This will save a large amount of time while also allowing you to spend much more time on specific areas in detail. GoConqr has the ideal tool to help you collaborate on your Mind Maps. Groups is a private area where you can discuss topics and share your Mind Maps and other study resources.
