Spaced repetition is one of the most effective methods to study and ace examinations. It has been used by several notable people such as Ali Abdaal to help them learn and remember content effectively and for the longest period of time without naturally forgetting about them.
Every human has their own forgetting curves, where they tend to forget information about a certain topic over time. The way we can take advantage of the forgetting curve is by breaking the cycle by reviewing learning material at spaced intervals. The more that we practice and the more spaced this repetition becomes, the more likely we are to encode this information into our long-term memory.
In essence, the idea behind spaced repetition is that you allow your brain to forget some of the information to ensure that the active recall process is mentally taxing. The psychology literature suggests that the harder that your brain has to work to retrieve information, the more likely the information will be encoded in your brain.
We have embedded this concept into a simple yet outstanding template pack that allows students and anyone who is learning to add individual spaced repetition schedules for each subject and their respective topics. You will be able to track progress with learning all your subjects and modules and view upcoming study dates in a calendar.
