Tips for studying well
If you have an exam coming up but have so many distractions, can’t concentrate properly or just don’t know how to revise or study well, these few easy steps will definitely help you reach your goals.
Set up a reasonable study schedule. This will help you feel relaxed as you study, and never have to do too much at once. Take breaks every 15 minutes to 1 hour, depending on your attention span and amount of homework.
Find a quiet, comfortable place to study. Choose a place with a bit of space so you can organize your books and papers and spread out as much as you need to. Make sure you have everything you need – books, notes, paper, and pencils. Look for a place where you’re unlikely to have other people walk past and start talking to you. Try bedrooms, reading nooks, quiet places outdoors, or libraries. If you are hungry, bring a snack (or eat beforehand). It’s easier to study on a full stomach.
Get rid of all distractions and turn off any devices. It’s difficult to concentrate if you’re constantly interrupted by notifications or keeping one eye on the TV screen. Studies show that students who don’t have distractions get higher grades. Take a walk or get some exercise before you sit down to study. Studies also show that going for a walk stimulates the brain.
Use different studying techniques to learn the information. The variety will help you commit the information to memory. Create flashcards. Writing the flashcards will help you remember, and so will quizzing yourself. You can also offer to teach someone about the subject matter. For example, if your little sister loves science, offer to explain the concepts you need to study for your physics quiz. The teaching process will help you solidify your knowledge, identify gaps in what you know, and give your sister material to impress her friends with her advanced knowledge of science.
You can also color-code your notes, and draw pictures or diagrams to help you remember concepts. Studies show that if you write something down, say it out loud, and then read it in your head 5 times, you will remember it well. Consider choosing a reward to motivate yourself.
It’s important to break your work into reasonable pieces. Cramming or going through a whole book in one sitting is likely to bore you and not help much. Try highlighting your book on one session, rereading the highlights in another session, then rereading your notes, and so on.
