1. Give yourself enough time to study
Don’t stress out! Make a time schedule. When will you start be studying, when will you go eat, and other else. Make sure you have time for yourself instead of looking through your books 24/7. That’s not how it goes. People actually died from excessive studying and you better not be one of them. Plus, don’t ever try to study last minute. Your brain will weaken easily since it is very tired with you not taking a rest.
2.Organize your study space
Depends if you like it messy or you like it tidy. Make sure you have your desired space every time you’re studying. You like to spread your papers or books? There’s an area for your foods? Oh pillows! Organize your space well while studying since you will be spending a whole lot of time there. Some people like studying in crowded places, go to a coffee shop! The lake sounds fun with publics around you, yeah sure why not bring along your books there!
3. Practice on old exams
Old exams are those old questions which your senior, your great senior, your great great senior uses during their time in those late years. Which is very useful! Most educators tend to re-do again questions, just to test whether do their student really do some research? or they just like to ease up their time making new questions. It super useful where you can estimate time on answering the questions.
4. Explain your answer to others
Parents, siblings, cousins and your friends! Anyone around you can be a help for you so you can explain your answer to them. It is one of the ways to remember things easily. Like when you gossip, you tend to remember the exact word that they’re saying. Why not try telling your answer in a gossip way to your friend or whoever around you, trust me. It really does help. Just try to focus on the answers rather than gossipping.
5. Organize study groups with friends
This is also depends on people. Some likes to study alone, some likes to shares information, that way they remember things easily.Organizing study groups with friend is actually really effective for getting information easily, with friends with more knowledge than us, or us giving them a bit of what we knew there we could create communication with each other. As long as everyone in the group are all focus in what is the main point there, everything will be easily done by it.
