Hello everyone! How are you all doing? Hope you are in the best of health and happiness. Have your exams started? Mine are starting in about a week and a half.
As the finals are here, I thought today’s post would be related to that. Here are 10 study tips that I follow. I hope you’ll enjoy this post and let’s get into it.
1. Study whenever possible and revise
Always study when you get the opportunity, it doesn’t matter whether it’s for 20 or 25 minutes. You should study earlier and revise as many times as you can. These multiple revisions can help you remember information easily and increase your confidence while taking the exams.
2. Study in a quite room
It is crucial that you study in a quite room as it can help you to concentrate fully. Keep everything that distracts you in a separate room.
3. Study little by little
You don’t have to study one whole chapter or 20 pages in just one day. You can study them little by little over days if you start earlier. This is much easier and can make you feel more motivated.
4. Don’t hesitate to ask for help
Whether you are studying Biology or Economics, and you have doubts about certain points, don’t be afraid to ask your teacher about it. Clearing doubts can help you boost your confidence. Besides teachers love to help his/her students.
5. Set the right time for studying
You can make a timetable and write down all the subjects you have to revise and set certain time for studying each of them. Studying when you’re exhausted or sleepy prevents you from paying concentration into the subject matter, so don’t do this. Take a walk if needed or sleep for a while or eat an healthy meal and then go and study.
6. Get rid of distractions
Don’t you ever feel that temptation to always check your social media for any notifications or check for any messages from your friends? I know I do and this is rather distracting. So before you set off to study, switch off your phone or keep it in silent and if possible place it in a separate room as in this way, it is very unlikely for you to get distracted.
7. Take breaks
Don’t study in one stretch! After about 1 hour of studying, take a short break, relax a bit before continuing. These breaks have been proven to calm your mind, make you feel energized and motivated.
8. Get loads of sleep
Sleep is exceedingly important. Make sure you get at least 8 hours of sleep a day.
9. Keep water and snacks by your side
Drink loads of water while studying as you don’t want to be dehydrated. Have snacks preferably something healthy like an apple, a fruit salad nearby so you can consume it when you feel hungry and you don’t have to walk all the way to kitchen.
10. Make sure to reward yourself
You should definitely reward yourself after an hour or two of studying. This can make you feel motivated and surely very happy. The reward can be literally anything – watching tv for a while, continuing with the novel that you were reading, eating pizza, etc.
Okay everyone, we have reached the end of this post! I hope you found this helpful and tell me which of these you do.
Until next time. See you all later! Bye!! 🙂
