The results

Mostly As

You're a Kinesthetic learner, otherwise known as a 'do-er'. You learn more when something is physical or involves your hands and sense of touch. 

Try keeping your hands busy when studying and try combining an activity with it. Take regular breaks to help you keep concentration. 

Mostly Bs

You're a Verbal learner who prefers to learn using writing and speech. 

Try studying in a group where you can see other people write down the information or hear them talking about it. You'll probably also benefit from teaching someone else about your subject. 

Mostly Cs

You're a Visual learner who prefers to learn using images, diagrams or graphs. 

Try transforming your mundane lecture notes into spider diagrams or pictures. Adding colours to your notes can also help put them into separate sections. 

Mostly Ds

You're an Auditory learner who prefers to learn through listening to music or sounds. 

Try repeating things out loud to yourself, maybe to a beat or rhythm, to help store important information. You may also benefit from recording lectures and playing them out loud.
