1. CAP STUDY SESSIONS AT 30 MINUTES
Studying is most effective in small spurts of 20- to 30-minute sessions over a period of a few weeks. The synapses in the brain process less information more efficiently than giant chucks of information in one sitting.
2. AVOID PULLING ALL-NIGHTERS
Prolonged nocturnal study sessions do more harm than good when it comes to cramming for a test. It’s closely linked to poor grades, lower reasoning skills, and a poorer memory. Schedule study sessions for yourself at the same time day after day to train the brain to respond better on a regular basis.
3. THROW OUT THE HIGHLIGHTER
Reading, highlighting, and re-reading a textbook doesn’t improve the brain’s ability to absorb information or link key concepts together. Flashcards serve as the best option. Make important notes on flashcard for last minute study.
4. CONSTRUCT GOALS
Instead of trying to study all of the information as it’s taught, focus on specific goals. For example, memorize how to use a specific chemical equation. This helps in making concept bit simple.
5. IF YOU CAN TEACH IT, YOU KNOW
Try teaching yourself. You yourself can be the best tutor.Clear your concepts. Try to answer your own questions.
6. PRACTICE WITH PRACTICE TETS
Practice tests also make the testing situation more relaxing and boost confidence levels for the students, so when the time comes for the real deal they’re less intimidated.
7. FIND SACRED SPACE
Designating a space exclusively for studying improves study performance. Also, collect all of the tools necessary for studying beforehand to remove any hurdles or distractions.
8. CUT THE MUSIC
Those who study without music absorb information better than those who study with music. It may depend on what music they’re studying with because although rhythmic music such as rap disrupts the study process, other research has shown classical music helps people study.
9. TURN OFF THE PHONE
From social media to text messages, the cell phone is riddled with distractions and has the potential to taint your sacred study ground. It’s difficult to focus when a phone is ringing, let alone when a phone is notifying you throughout a study session.
10.EAT AT REGULAR INTERVALS.
Many students skip their meals while exams. Skipping meals won’t do anything good to you. It’ll only make you weak. So eat at regular intervals. Eat something light and healthy.
Work hard and study hard. Don’t stress much.
All the best guys!!
