When I learn about the PDP then I also made my PDP and now I have implement it in my existing student life it help to me so much to effective learning. For example after the study of management research project and presentation I had learn the skill of how to prepare the project? How to present it with other? How to answer the question of participator? How to manage the feedback? How to solve the problem? In here, my PDP has support to me made a confidence of that work.

Self-review has important influence in my learning. I failed in some module in my first semester after that I doing my self-review and asked the question why I failed? When I did my self-review I find out, in the past time I studied in Nepal in theoretical base but in UK study method is practical base method so there is learning style is not matching and I did not learn properly and I failed in the exam. And the other reason is, in Nepal my study method is Nepali medium but in England I am studying in English medium first chance. The is reason of language weakness I did not learn so many thing as well as I could not expresses of my learn thing also so I failed in the exam. Main this two thing I find out after my self- review and now I am try to remove that my weakness and going to made more effective of my study.
