Paradigm of Learning Loss

Dear Learners,

Have you ever heard these words; Summer Slide, Summer Slip or Learning Loss???

Sounds ambiguous? Those words are referred to primary school students losing retention of what they have learned during their school period.
Well, you’re not a student in primary or high school. But as you’re preparing to take your MRCOG Exams and with your exams postponed, confront the truth that you’re not an exemption from those words from the Summer Slip not by a long way.
The studies reveal that students in higher levels falls under this category over a quite few days and in fact, on average, most students lose a considerable proportion of worth learning.

You’ve work so hard, don’t you? How will you overcome this dilemma???

Make a study plan

Prepare a schedule and stick to it on a regular basis hence you don’t need to strive as harder as when you have learned it on the first go. We have to proceed on a pattern that shall replete with switches from expansion to self-preservation and back again to growth.

Refresh the materials

Review your materials on regular basis. Reviewing each day, even if it’s just for a few minutes, will help you to avoid or minimize forgetting information over time.
Look for a buddy or a partner, someone who will listen to your goals, act as a sounding board, and hold you accountable in an agreed-upon way if you fail to meet them. Your spouse or your friend can act for the purpose, Having someone to chat with using terminology will help keep those words fresh.
Terminology is one of the most critical aspects of passing the exam. Unquestionably, once you are preparing for the MRCOG part 3 exam, one of the first things you should want to do is to learn the language of the exam–that is, to learn the terminology. If you don’t know what the term means, you certainly can’t answer an application level question related to the term.
Presuming that you are committed to evidence-based practice, you’ll be doing some reading and diving into some healthcare books and journals. That means you’ll need a strong mastery of terminology. Research suggests that simply reading a word in context is rarely helpful for gaining an understanding of its full meaning. (And, we might assume, not helpful for using the word later.) So, know it, or look it up.

Mastery-approach goals vs performance-approach goals

Researchers have suggested that mastery-approach goals (i.e., developing one’s own competence) promote a relational encoding, whereas performance-approach goals (i.e., demonstrating one’s ability in comparison with others) promote item-specific encoding. In simple studies suggest that mastery-approach goals eliminate retrieval-induced forgetting, but performance-approach goals do not, demonstrating that motivation factors can influence inhibition and forgetting. By striving for mastery, you avoid forgetting information and having issues recalling information later on.

Practice and Revise

Practice your revision courses again and again. Working on mock exams will help to identify weak areas and to guard against forgetting information. The best way to avoid forgetting information is to use it often. You may have heard “use it or lose it.” Undoubted! If you don’t use the information you are at risk for forgetting information.
