+ Getting 1st class grades
9 lectures 01:02:24

Are you in the right frame of mind to get high grades? In this lecture I look at getting the high achieving mindset, how to calculate your goals and targets and the figures and statistics associated with high university achievers. 

To keep track of your progress I have created a module tracker. For each module assignment fill out the assignment details, grade and tutor feedback so you can track and measure your progress over the course of the term. Use more than one sheet depending on how many modules and assignments you are taking. Print in A3 if more space is required.

Setting the foundations and mindset for 1sts

Are you familiar with your university mark scheme? In this lecture I look at which aspects of the mark scheme you can't ignore for high grades and how to hit the mark scheme points properly in your assignments.

Focusing on the marking criteria

Are you extracting everything you need from lectures properly? Are you missing key bits of information out all the time on a regular basis? In Lecture 3 I look at the usual methods students use of note taking and how these can be improved with simple tweaks to enhance your note taking ability. Secondly I look at the most efficient methods of preparing for lectures and extracting information from lectures so you don't miss vital facts and save time and effort in the process.

How to make the most from lectures

Do you know what markers are looking for in your work? Are you aware of the volume of work they have to mark? How will your work be valued and assessed while sitting in the middle of a huge pile of student essays and grab the markers attention it duly deserves? In lecture 4 I show you exactly what a marker looks for in your work and how you can clearly display to markers that your work is of 1st class quality.

Understanding the markers mindset

Do you have a set regime and structure that you use for every assignment you write? In lecture 5 I outline all the main arsenal at your disposal for getting high grades, such as your assignment plan, abstracts, review articles and how to use these in a way that will get you higher marks, save you time and stress.

How to write assignments and essays for 1sts

Is picking an interesting module good or bad for you? lecture 6 I show you why module choice is so important in achieving high grades and what the common schools of thought are for strategising your module choice. 

How to pick modules to your advantage

In lecture 7 I look at how to make your writing stand out in a league of its own by organising your essay with signposting, using the correct connecting phrases in arguments and by picking the most intriguing facts. I also look at how to make an introduction like an advert, to increase the markers attention to your essay and how to make the marker love your work.

How to make your writing stand out

In lecture 8 I show you what prose is and why prose can be a real weapon for increasing the effectivity of your arguments. Secondly I look at why your prose is the key to good grades and how to write academically with a sharp and succinct prose that clearly shows off your work as 1st class quality with an example essay.

Why prose is everything

Are you doing everything you need to in the term running up to your exam? This lecture will give you peace of mind by reassuring you that you are indeed doing things correctly. I also cover some additional points to help you stay stimulated and hopefully make your exam revision period less boring and monotonous.
