Have you 'dumbed down'?

So i recently decided that i want to go back to school (finally!)

I'm going to go back and do my A-levels again, some different to the ones i did before, but realised that i haven't actually learnt anything for around 4 years now so should probably do some recapping.

Now, i'm going to do maths again. I got an A at GCSE, and a B in some practice A level papers (i dropped it before i did the proper exam), however i have just had a look at some of the brothers basic GCSE papers and know NOTHING. i seem to have forgotten almost everything i learnt at school! I've got a lot of catching up to do before i go back!

Have you found that you have lost knowledge of subjects you used to be good at, simply due to being out of practice?

Best way is to just reread your notes again/try to do some of the problems you dealt with.

What you studying?

Maths is very much like that... more than most subjects. I teach maths, and it's amazing how often a student will say "I don;t know how to do that" and then half way through your explanation suddenly go "OH YE! I remember now". It's like with most things, if you don't call on the knowledge you will begin to forget it, but usually it only takes a little bit of prompting to bring it back

I definitely feel like that. If I did my GCSEs/A Levels/uni exams now, I'd fail.
I've got stupid without question. :(
Good on you for going back & doing more study though. :)

Sort of, but these days I hold on to information a lot better and I have a clearer understanding of most things. I reckon getting back into reading and research in a big way at uni helped.

I think I was simply out of the habit of learning, but I got it back.
I must have been out of the habit since I was about 10.

Uni ruined my brain.

I actually pulled out all of my old cheesy GCSE CGP books, and intend on trying to refresh my memory.

So many faces I have seen, so many places not yet been.
So many people I have met, so many names not to forget.
Such beautiful people in their right, laughing, dancing through the night.
So many faces I have seen, the futures so bright it can't be seen.
Is any of this even real?
