In a study relationship, you should have different strengths so that you can help each other out. It’s not very helpful when you’re all good at math, but terrible at science. Science will inevitably suffer.
Granted, you’ll all have different levels of discipline, so make sure there’s that one person who is firm and authoritative, with a high level of discipline. This one will be the one to bring you all back on track when you begin to stray.
Most importantly, ensure there’s someone who’ll bring snacks because guys…snacks; it requires no further explanation? Every person should have their day when this is their duty.
Note that you can create a group for only a few subjects, even just one, that you all feel you need a hand managing. It doesn’t have to be all the subjects.
What exactly do you do in a study group or pair?
Going through past papers is the easiest thing to do with another person, or people. It should include referring to textbooks on questions you’re not sure about. And even the ones you are sure about, for quick revision. One person should be the ‘chairperson’ so that there can be some sort of order
Or you can give each other days where one person explains a topic to the others. Each person should be given a topic or subject that is their strength.
But be creative and see what else you can do to reap the most fruits, working together.
When all that is done, set up a day, convenient for everyone, when you all can meet. The number of times you meet is up to the group.
And please make sure you have something to bring to the table too. It’s only fair to the others.
