We’ve all been there: desperately cramming the night before an exam, only to realize that most of what we ‘studied’ seems to have disappeared from our memory by the next morning. But what if you could be sure of retaining what you learn – not just for the test, but for the long haul? “Spaced Repetition” is an evidence-based method that promises to revolutionize the way you study.
Spaced Repetition is a fancy-sounding term for a simple, effective concept: the practice of reviewing information at increasing intervals over time. Instead of memorizing a fact once and for all, you revisit and revise it several times, spacing out your reviews.
Why every university student should embrace Spaced Repetition
I will give you an example:Meet Alex, a second-year student overwhelmed with coursework. For her midterms, Alex decided to try Spaced Repetition. She used flashcards for her Economics class, and after reading a concept, she’d review it the next day, then three days after, then a week later, and so on. Result? Not only did Alex score an A, but when finals rolled around, she was surprised at how much she remembered without needing to start from scratch!
