Hi guys! Are you tired of long studying time? Are you bored of looking at your books, memorising the words? Do you want to know how to study effectively? This article is what you're looking for!
If you are having difficulties studying, you are not alone! Studying for an exam has been a problem for most students. Students often say that they don't have enough time to study. Studying time varies from one student to another, some can study in an hour for an exam, but some say that a day is just not enough. This could be a serious problem, when the students who need a long time to study fail an exam, and this happens occasionally, it might give them a shock. The shock can give them stress, this leads to a depression, and the final destination is a life-time regret.
3 tips to study effectively:
1. Manage your time!
Time management is always a crucial point, not only in studying, but every aspect of our lives. When you have to ability to manage time, you'll be able to do things at the right time and in an effective way. When it's your time to take a rest, take a rest! When it's your time to study, study! Don't take a rest when you are studying and don't study when you are taking a rest! We need a rest to stay fit when we are studying. When you are studying, concentrate on your study.
When I have an exam the next day, I usually spend my evening by playing games, watching T.V., reading comic books, surfing the web, and other fun things. Mostly, I start studying at half past 7 and finish before 10 o'clock. My average mark: 80 out of 100. I do whatever I want before I study.
Concentration is a crucial point in studying. When you don't have the concentration, you won't be able to study quickly. Concentrating helps you to memorise things quicker. Therefore, speeds up your study.
There are lots of ways to develop concentration, it varies from one to other students. Some students say that listening to music helps them to concentrate, some say that studying at a really quiet place helps to concentrate, I personally like to study while I listen to music. When I am bored, I sing(though my voice isn't that good), lol.
3. Believe in yourself!
Believing in yourself is one important matter. It is a matter of passing and failing. Believing in yourself prevents you from panicking. Sometimes, before we start, we feel that there's too much to memorise, it cause us to panic. By believing in ourselves, we prevent panicking and help us to stay calm. Thus, speeding up our studying time.
4. Take little breaks!
This is also crucial, for taking little breaks prevents us from ringing the boredom-bells. It is ideal to take a 5 minute break every half an hour. Use your breaks to drink, stretch your body, and you can even scream to release the stress.
What if you've already rung your boredom-bells?
It would be better to study when you are not bored, as boredom might slow you down. Stop studying for a while, have a longer break, 15 minutes maximum, then study again. Never stop too long, a long stop will not help you study quicker, it's even a waste of time. When you stop too long, you become too lazy to study again.
A little smile will definitely help you. Little smile, but big effect. Smiles give you the spirit to study. Even if it's a fake smile, they can give you some spirit. Smiles are signs of positive way of thinking, and positive thinking gives you the spirit to study. Smiles can also reduce your boredom alarm time.
