Simple Study Tips – Infographic
Set a goal
Set your study goals and start with the basics. Find a strong motivation to study, such as a goal to achieve which will help to restore your focus whenever you wander.
Make a study timetable
Prepare a weekly study timetable. Set a routine for everything. Your timetable should include the bedtime, meals time and most importantly the time you should spend on studies. Sleep well and have your day scheduled.
Find the right place to study
Picking the right place to study is very important because it has a major influence on the level of concentration and efficiency of the learning process. Find a quiet place with good lighting and ventilation, preferably without a television, a computer or a cell phone within your reach. Try staying away from social media. Turn off all electronic devices. Studying in a closed room will help to boost your productivity and eases any distractions.
Find a study partner
Find a sensible, smart and dedicated study partner on the same task and doesn’t mind teaching.
Regular breaks are essential to maintaining a high level of concentration and also your brain needs time to recharge after it processes a bunch of information. Break down the study times into smaller chunks of time. Whenever you feel tired while studying, get up and do some physical activity for a few minutes. If possible, go out for walking a few minutes, else at least walk up and down the stairs or walk around in the room. Do whatever you can do to get tiredness away.
Don’t overthink about the actual study process or worry about the time you have wasted. Spend that time reviewing the portions you feel least confident about. Do revision regularly and don’t leave your revision to the last minute of examination. Don’t view studies as something compulsory or just something you need to do to get a good result.
Try to avoid games, phones, and computers during the examination period, and have plenty of rest and sleep before the day of examination. Once you finish studying one topic take small practice tests on your own or with friends.
