Stuff to Read 'n Stuff
Updated 5 October 2018

Until the day that students can take study notes into exams, the need to memorise facts is never going to go away - sorry, not sorry!  If you hear someone tell you that you shouldn't 'memorise stuff like some robot', beware - it's a stitch-up!   You can understand a subject perfectly, but no matter how amazeballs your brain is, there will be gaps in your recall that will cost you big marks in the exam if you didn't make a concerted effort to memorise the facts properly.  In fact, the act of active recall itself is a skill that should be encouraged and developed.
