So you think you're like me and doesn't know how to study ? i managed to get you a couple of tips so you can be more effective and feel better about yourself while doing your famous last hour study to your final exam, here we go !
"Make notes from lessons the same day. Use codes for difficult topics. For long sentences use abbrevations."
"Use the holidays to try to catch up with your mates or even get ahead of them. Review the syllabus for each of your classes and take good study notes. Get a good night's sleep before the day of a test. Exercise is good for the brain so try to do at least 30 minutes of exercise every day."
"My school is taking a very long break now. I am going to try to do some reviewing almost every day. Not as much as during school - maybe 30 minutes a day. I don't want to forget everything."
"Whenever I study I try as much as possible to brush away thoughts that may take off my concentration. A quiet place is relevant for smart studies."
|"When studying a hard subject you may become nervous. Then your concentration level goes low. At that time keep listen to a favorite song in your most relaxing position. This will get rid of your nervousness and increase your concentration."|
| "Always remember that you are studying for a purpose. After reading a
paragraph, try to say it in your own words. This will help you to
understand it better and will increase your concentration.|
"I always think that flashcards help. And if you don't have flashcards, take pieces of paper and put them over the answers. Read the question until you get the answer right. "
So get yourself up and go to study little man and girl, you have a lot of life in front of you and lots of universities to apply !
