Study planning

To help you with your study planning, a good strategy is to identify key topics for revision so that you can focus on the areas that need more work.

First, start with “larger” topics, or the main topics,  (e.g., cardio, respiratory, musculoskeletal), and then second, add the “smaller” topics or subtopics.  See our example below:

Identify relative strengths and weaknesses and use a traffic light system:

  • Red = gap in knowledge so needs more  work
  • Yellow = have some knowledge but need to revisit
  • Green = have a good understanding of the topic

You can use the feedback from your attachments/runs) to help you complete the table.
