  • If you want to listen to music as you study, try songs without words. This helps prevent distractions



  • Use mnemonics (e.g. CLUMP for Hofstede's Cultural Dimensions) to really help remember key topics



  • Have incentives! Keep yourself motivated by having rewards after a productive session.


  • Learn the most important facts first - then go back through other, fringe areas of the syllabus.




  • Give yourself plenty of breaks. Work hard for 40-50 mins, then have a 5-10 min break in a different room.


  • Block Facebook and Youtube! If you get easily distracted, you can get apps to help stop your mind wandering.


  • Eat properly! Keep up the fruit and veg, and try some 'brain foods' such as oily fish and blueberries.


  • Rest. Get plenty of sleep, and stop studying at least an hour before bed to prevent accounting dreams.   

  • Clear your mind 1st. Jot down any thoughts that aren't study related, and come back to them once you're done.


  • Make it fun! Use funny stories and ways of remembering things to keep them fresh.


  • Do a proper mock. Before the real exam, do a full length mock or past paper to practice timing and technique.


  • Make revision cards. Condense the key topics into small cards that you can revise from more easily.


  • Avoid big nights out. This may seem a great break at the time, but you'll regret it the next day.

  • Drink plenty of water. Keep yourself hydrated whilst studying and during the exam itself.


  • Let people know you've got an important exam coming up. They'll be less likely to disturb you.



  • Visualize success. Believe in yourself - you've worked hard for this exam, and soon you can celebrate passing.


  • Choose a nice pen! Find a pen that's comfortable and makes your writing neat - win the marker over early
