Examination is a challenging task. Especially students face a lot of examinations in their academics. They have to face examinations at least once a month. Yet, most of them lack good grades and proper study. One has to maintain a proper set of rules and patterns for studying. The pattern may differ from one subject to another but the study techniques still remain the same. In this article, you will get to know the various study tips and tricks.
Professionals or great personalities motivate themselves to achieve their goals. In a similar fashion, you must motivate yourself to study better. Students need to set a goal and also a reward for achieving that goal. For example, one can set a goal that he will solve the chemistry questions of two chapters within a set time period. If he reaches his goal then he can reward himself by reading a novel or listening to music for half an hour and then again continue with his studies. A set of positive quotes can be written and pasted on the study table. While studying, commit to a single task and focus on that. Stretching your minds in multiple ways and subjects will lead to distraction and finally one will lose interest in that.
Study Based On Your Learning Style
Each one of us has a different way of learning and grasping the concepts. One can just memorise by reading once but few of us need more efforts. So choose a pattern that suits your learning style. Some are visual learners, for them diagrams, flow charts and pictures can help to grasp the topics better. For instance, for answering Physics questions sometimes you need to learn diagrams, laws and formulae. One can make a chart of related circuit diagrams formulae and equations in a tabular format and learn through it. Few are auditory learners which might benefit from listening to lecture, or listening to your teachers while teaching. Identify your learning style and indulge yourself in that fashion and upgrade your study skills and grades.
Nowadays, the trend is smart work rather than hard work. Smart work is nothing but performing a task in a smarter way. In the same way, students can study smarter. There is a lack of time just a couple of days before the examination during that time one has to gear up. During that time instead of solving each and every problem, one can solve hardly 2-3 problems and leave out the similar ones. First studying what you don’t know makes your study simpler. One can spend much time on this and later revising the known concepts.
Don’t Over Study
The meaning of studying is only to study what you don’t know. Most students actually study too much and refer to all the reference books. Studying one prescribed book is more than enough. Missing a point makes them depressed. So do not over study, understand the concepts and learn them. Sooner or later one will reach an endpoint where the knowledge diminishes and he may forget.
Study must be according to one’s capability and strength. Only scoring high grades will not bring good results. Along with study one has to have other skills like communication and vocabulary skills, leadership qualities etc. Study and these skills both move hand in hand. Hence, focus on both and shine in both fields. Do not let either of these go out of track. Soft skills also take priority in studying and scoring.
