It is that time of the year again. Time for sleepless nights, quick meals and that horrible feeling of knowing nothing after a marathon of hardcore studying is back. Final exams are around the corner and the only feeling that is surrounding you is ‘remorse’, for all the missed lectures, wasted time and for underestimating how much time you have left for preparation. But the thought of scoring average marks is stressing you. Different people have different ways to study. Some remember and retain information better if it is in visual form, whereas some people try to figure out acronyms to memorize a long piece of data. Therefore, while you are going through study materials try to notice what stuck you and why? Is it an image that you remember or a mnemonic and acronym that you created?
Once you find out what is that your brain responds to the most, you can get in on your creative shoes to memorize and cater your study needs. Study skills and studying strategies are applicable differently to everyone. When it comes to studying tips, there is no ‘one-way-fits-all’ approach. There is no right or wrong way (Other than not studying at all). But what is the best approach to study so that you are completely relaxed during your exams and can get the best out of it?
Don’t worry we got you covered with 5 study tips to help you ace those upcoming exams.
1. Set Study Goals– It has been seen that setting goals can be looked at as a part of your strategy that eventually has a positive effect on your life. It is no exception when it comes to studying. Setting goals would actually help you to achieve better. But you have to remember to set realistic goals. It is also important to know how to map your goals with the required effort. You have to be ready to work that much hard in order to achieve the same.
2. Make A Study Routine– Making a study routine does not only mean making timetables that say what to study and when. Even the study environment matter, otherwise timetables don’t come to use when you fail to concentrate. Find a place that is quiet and without any distractions and make it your study place.
3. Avoid Multi-tasking– Our brain is the most well-designed device, but it cannot handle everything at once. So if you are tempted to play your favourite music in the background and study at the same time. Abort mission. When you do, your brain struggles hard to switch rapidly between tasks and whenever you get distracted and switch focus, it takes minutes to settle back into the groove of studying. To get the best most out of your time, direct your complete attention to one thing.
4. Take the help of technology and internet– Gone are the days of jotting down things on a paper while studying. The old handwritten method still has its own place, it’s just that now there are more options for personalised study than ever before. Whether it’s through online tools, social media, blogs, videos or mobile apps, learning has become more fluid and user-centric. Also, use of internet can offer you a detailed knowledge and more insight into a specific topic that can help if you don’t prefer memorizing conventional definitions from textbooks.
5. Find A Healthy Balance– Both your physical and mental health has a big impact on the amount of study that you get done and the effectiveness of your learning process, which is why it is important to find a healthy balance between both. Stay positive and identify if you need to make changes on your daily routine. Take control and see how positively it affects your attitude and your study routine.
