Could someone please help me, and tell me what i am doing wrong or could do better. im doing a physics degree but this time when it came to exams i studied really hard yet i still couldnt remember everything and in the end i recognised everything but couldnt answer the question. i found going to lectures not very useful as my lecturers didnt try to make the subject matter interesting so i thought i would do it myself. i dont like the univeristy enviromnent either. i instead wrote really clear notes,using colours, diagrams and understood most things at the time of doing things. The problem was that by the time i had these perfect notes, i didnt know how to learn them. i find it almost impossible to learn astrophysics,quantum mechanics and electromagnetism for 3 exams in 3 days as the problem is these subjects are vast and in reality could they could ask number of questions from proofs, to explain a evolution of main sequence star, especially with subject like astrophysics i found it so hard to visualise things, as half the time i feel like im just becoming a walking dictionary. my problem is not that i cant understand concepts but how do u visuslise every step so it easier to remember for an exam. in the end i feel like giving up because i want to learn but if i keep getting crap marks its gonna look like im not trying.
