A young doctor has revealed 6 ‘cheat codes’ to help students stay ‘straight’ on exams.
24-year-old Dr Sarah Rav (pictured), who works and lives in Melbourne, has a huge TikTok following of over 1.5 million and talks about how students pass exams and ‘get good grades in school’. share advice.
The first technique Sarah recommends to study is the Feynman Technique.
“This means teaching content to children, forcing them to simplify knowledge and make sure they really understand it,” she said.
The Feynman technique simplifies the initial explanation and deepens understanding through simple analogy.
I promise that simplicity is a substitute for understanding when you deconstruct something. It’s easy to memorize terms and repeat them when prompted.
The second approach recommended by young doctors is the popular one when it comes to revision. It’s mind mapping.
6 Exam Revision Approaches to Follow
1. Feynman method
2. Mind Mapping
3. Search practice
4. PQ4R approach
5. SQ3R Approach
6. Careful interrogation
“Laying out all the information on one page and drawing connections between key concepts,” said Sarah.
Mind maps use words and images to create powerful associations that help you remember what you’ve learned.
You can use mind maps to brainstorm, plan, and revise.
Third, Sarah said you can try “search practice.” This means trying to “remember information without looking at your notes, such as flashcards or application questions”.
“This will help you remember it easier,” she said.
Alternatively, she said, you could try the PQ4R approach.
PQ4R is a method used to improve comprehension and retention, which helps you remember things.
There is also the SQ3R method. It stands for Survey, Question, Read, Recite, Review.
Finally, Sarah said that careful questioning might help you:
“By asking ‘why’ and ‘how’ instead of memorizing what you’re learning, you can understand and explain why something is the way it is, so it’s easier to remember.” she said.

Thousands of people who watched Sarah’s video immediately thanked her for sharing such helpful advice.
“Thank you very much,” one person posted.
“Your videos help me a lot,” added another.

Previously, Sarah revealed how she overcame a terrifying eating disorder after nearly dying at age 19, and now uses TikTok to support others going through the same thing.
Sarah weighed only 30 kg at the peak of her battle with anorexia, but has since revealed she feared the disease would take her life.
The 24-year-old told FEMAIL that she runs three hours every day just to reach her goal.

A college lecturer then pulled her aside and told her she needed to see a doctor if she wanted to continue attending classes.
When she got on the scale in front of the doctor, he told her she had to go to the emergency department immediately.
She revealed that she eats only 300-400 calories each day and runs three hours each day.
‘That [my desire to be healthy] I was getting sick. He was out of control,” Sarah told her FEMAIL.
Sarah recalled that as a teenager she was always healthy and obsessed with weightlifting, but that all changed when she entered college and suddenly became an obsession (before and now photos).
Sarah recalled that when she was a teenager, she was always healthy and obsessed with lifting weights, but when she entered college everything changed and suddenly it became an obsession.
She said she makes an effort to tighten her calorie allowance and run longer or exercise longer each day.
“I didn’t realize this progress at the time, but it was like, ‘I have to run 18km today or I’ll fail,'” Sarah said.
Breakfast was limited to fat-free and sugar-free yogurt, lunch was a protein bar and Diet Coke, and dinner was limited to low-calorie lettuce, zucchini, broccoli, and other vegetables. Dressing or nothing at all (current photo)

“It wasn’t about wanting to lose weight or look a certain way,” Sarah said.
Instead, it was about “control,” and every day that Sarah strived to be “better,” or what she thought was better.
At her lowest point, Sarah weighed only 30 kilos and had a BMI of 10. She was tired all the time and her bones hurt when she sat down.
She also lost her period, had regular nosebleeds, and was losing her hair.
At her lowest point, Sarah (pictured in 2018 and now) was eating only 300 or 400 calories a day and running 3 hours each day.
When her family doctor sent her to the hospital, she had not been discharged for a week and was officially diagnosed with anorexia nervosa.
While there, she underwent a recovery program where she was not allowed to move and had to use a wheelchair to go to the bathroom.
Sarah was also forced to eat foods she hadn’t eaten in months, including pasta, fast food, and no vegetables.
“It’s hard for people with mental illness to accept that they’re mentally ill,” said the 24-year-old.
But she had a strong desire to go back to medical school, so she ate everything she was given.
What is anorexia nervosa?
*Anorexia nervosa is a mental illness that has devastating effects on the body.
*It is characterized by a distorted body image due to the obsession with gaining weight, which appears due to being underweight and depriving the body of food.
* Often coincides with increased exercise levels.
*There are two main subtypes of anorexia.
Limit type — This is the most commonly known type of anorexia nervosa, in which a person severely restricts food intake.
binge eating or purifying type — Less recognized, this type of anorexia nervosa forms when a person is restricting intake as described above, but also regularly engages in overeating or purging behavior. I’m here.
*Anorexia nervosa can affect the mind and body in many ways.
brain – Food and calorie obsessions, fear of weight gain, headaches, fainting, dizziness, mood swings, anxiety, and depression.
hair and skin – Dry skin, brittle nails, thin hair, easy bruising, yellow complexion, thin gray hairs all over the body (called lanugo), and intolerance to cold.
heart and blood – Poor circulation, irregular or slow heartbeat, very low blood pressure, cardiac arrest, heart failure, low iron levels (anemia).
intestine – Constipation, diarrhea, bloating, abdominal pain.
hormone – Irregular or amenorrhea, decreased libido, infertility.
kidney – Dehydration, renal failure.
bone and muscle – Bone calcium loss (osteopenia), osteoporosis, muscle loss, weakness, fatigue.
sauce: eating disorder organization
When she left the hospital, Sarah did not train once for two months and challenged herself to eat all the foods she had previously refused (hamburgers, pancakes, fast food).
Over time, Sarah began incorporating weight-based gym exercises into her routine, rebuilding atrophying muscles, and stopped counting calories with the MyFitnessPal app.
She has gained 19 kilos and is now back in the “healthy” BMI range, raising awareness about the disorder on her Instagram page.
Sarah says her future aspirations are still to become a doctor, and she wants to specialize in either mental health or general surgery.
“It’s still my number one dream,” she said. “All I want to do is devote myself to my patients full time.”
