Hi everyone!
I have just started this course. Any recommendations for study support please. Flashcards of plants to learn or any other useful tools and tips please.

    I’m doing my exams in this in 15 days time.  Everyone learns differently but for me making notes with one eye carefully on the RHS syllabus document, and doing loads and loads of past papers and then comparing my answers with the examiners comments works the best 🤞🏻

    Off to do another past paper now 🤯

    Also - if you have Facebook there is a really useful group called RHS Exams study group which has loads of conversations from other people going through the same thing - some really useful tips on there.

  • Depends how you learn. Try to reduce the whole course to a single A4 page, by means of keywords. For a visual brain, remembering where the keyword is on the page can then stimulate the memory of the relevant text /diagram.

    Once you're a bit further into the course - doing past papers, timed, then analysing your answers against those of the RHS. Try to keep a few for closer to the exam date.
