As a student, you are constantly being given more and more information – a pile of formulas, a heap of dates, a list of verbs! How do you make sense of it all, let alone remember it and make connections between all of it? This is where Mind Mapping and iMindMap come in. We want to make your student life as easy as possible, so that you can enjoy education as well as some well earned free time!
How does Mind Mapping work?
Mind Maps are visual maps of ideas, which take a central idea and then span out from this in a circular shape. As you draw branches from your central idea, you simply add on key words and colours and images. They are the ideal student tool, as they take all of the information you are given, and then break this down into the most important key words – making it easier to remember. Also, as you add ideas you are free to make associations and connections – unlike boring lined notes! You create the perfect study sheet for a student, with only the information you need and with your own ideas and opinions attached. If you want to know more, find out how to create a Mind Map.

“The results I achieved using iMindMap were fantastic and it was so easy to use. The software assisted me with my revision for exams. By the end of Year 10 I had achieved a D and E grade in Geography and History. After using iMindMap for revision, I achieved A grades in both!”
Tom Jones, Student, Cowbridge High School
“I am a terrible note maker, I tend to read a text and end up copying the whole text into my notes which is why Mind Mapping is ideal for me…you can only have keywords on the branches and not reams of text. iMindMap has enabled me to reduce my notes by about 95% quickly and with visually pleasing results.”
Rob Williams, Student
“Last June I was diagnosed with dyslexia… iMindMap really helped me. I saw my grades go up and feel more confident in my abilities.”
Gemma Ryder, Student
