Learning to Learn
Learning is not instinctive - learn how to learn.

Westminster School


  1. If you are aiming for scholarship, you can never know too much - be ambitious!

  2. As you study science try to develop it into the way you experience the Universe, rather than just seeing it as a description of the Universe.

  3. The examination syllabus is there to tell you what will be examined, not the totality of what you could learn.

  4. Understanding is everything - insist on explanations, not just facts. Don't be fobbed off by 'you don't need the explanation for the exam' - that isn't the point of scholarship.

  5. People who tell you that you don't need facts are wrong - unless you have facts you can't build patterns of knowledge, and without patterns of knowledge you can't build understanding.

  6. Don't just stick to your set exam text - read as widely as you can in books and periodicals.

  7. You can never know too much.
