Okay now coming to the golden steps that I have for you. Please note that these steps has to be done only if you are in the dangerous situation, i.e near the exam time.
Five most effective methods to study easily
1)Set a goal in your mind
Setting up of a goal is the most important thing to do before starting every work. Without a goal you cannot achieve your dreams. In the same way it is important that you set a goal before you start studying. In this case first of all you must think in your mind that there is hardly one month for exam and you must study for it. If your mind is too weak, then it is advisable that you write this thing in a piece of white sheet in a large font and color it with attractive colors and stick in front of your study table.
2) Create a motivation in your heart.
Every people will have some motivation in order to complete their dream. For your better understanding I am going to tell you a short story about a father of mid thirty having a kid 3 years old. He was working as a worker in a company far from his home.
One day a letter came to him saying seriousness of his wife. Suddenly he started journey back to his home. His wife was dead before he reach the home. He was so sad that he could not even come for burying her. He then live rest of his life for his son of three years. But it was all of sudden when his son was badly affected by Polio disease. He sold whatever he has, for the treatment of his son, but yet the amount did not reach even the half. He felt that all are over and like his wife, his son is also leaving him.
While crying for his son, his eye fell on a newspaper. It was an announcement for the athletic competition. The winner will get an amount of 10 lakh, which was great enough for his son`s treatment. He participated the competition as soon as he can for the treatment of his kid. Before starting the race, he thought about the half paralyzed kid begging to get cured. He generate a motivation in his mind that, he will give even his life to save his son. That motivation help him to win the race and cure his son`s disease.
The same motivation has to be created by you towards the study. Because motivation has power to make impossible things to possible. Every people will have a dream, like wise find your`s, realize that study is the basic step that can lead you to succeed your dream. Fix your dream as your motivation. Just dream, what happy you will be when you succeed your dream. Think about your parents who will be proud to see in such a position, think about the value that the society will be giving you. Like these think about your motivations that can help you in your studies and note them down on another piece of paper, like as before. Stick this too in front of your study table. Always think that motivation gives man energy to attain things.
3) Create your surroundings appropriate for your studies
This tip will help you concentrate on your studies. Choose an appropriate place or room in your house which must be the most quiet among other rooms. Arrange and clear the chosen room so that all the objects that distract you from your studies must be cleared. Laptop, mobiles and other devices also must be kept out of the room. The room must be clean and tidy. It is optional that you decorate your study room with colorful materials. Don`t put your study materials such as, pens, books, boxes, bag etc, together. Arrange them and give appropriate places for each of them. Open your windows to get fresh air. If you feel your room to be little dark, ask your parents to put an extra tube.
Once you set your seating and studying arrangements in room, try to use that room for only studying, as it will bring you the mood to study as soon as you enter the room. You can keep a stop watch and find out the amount of time that you can concentrate on your study, you must find out the thing that distract your concentration. For example, you were studying for about 40 minutes and you lost your concentration due to the appetite, then the next time you must keep some snacks in your draw and eat some when you feel appetite. Like this you can find each and every act that distract your concentration and take appropriate action to keep that away from distracting you.
4) Prepare a plan for your study
Preparing plan to do your activity is the next most important thing after setting up of goal, to succeed your aim. Planning for your studies involves two steps:
a) Know your portions:
First of all you must know what are the subjects you need to study. Take out your book and prepare a list of each topics and sub topics of all the subjects separately. Now with the help of a teacher or a classmate, try to find out the mark distribution along the portions. Set them according to the priority of highest marks first. Also mark an important sign on the side of the topics that are frequently asked in previous exams.
b) Time Management:
Time management is an efficient method to plan for a study. Time management is a method of allotting time for each and every activity for your daily routine.
Note down your daily routine in a paper, which should explain how is your daily life going on. For example, 8.00- wake up, 9.00- breakfast, 10.00- sit in front of TV etc. Now find an appropriate time for which you can study without any stress. Find such four periods with a duration of one and half hours from your daily routine. Now divide each portions and allot time according to the priority set above. Don`t forget to keep an hour in the evening for relaxation. On the relaxation time, you can go for a walk or play with your friends, but make sure that you don`t play hard games like football, which makes you very much tired. Also don`t play with your computer, laptop or see TV in any case. While you are planning for your study don`t allot time after 9.30pm, close your study at sharp 9.30, sleep early and wake up before 5am, do relaxation for half an hour, eat some light breakfast and sit for study.
5) Start your study
The final step of this program is to start your study. There is nothing to mention further about starting your study, if you were a smart student. But unfortunately as you were absent minded in your class, you might not be having any previous knowledge about your subjects, in that case I am responsible to tell you how to study also.
Everybody including your parents, teachers and even your girlfriends used to yell at you to study. But nobody may not have even tell you how to study. But nothing to worry, I am here to tell you how to study.
First of all choose 5-8 students from your class who are top in various subjects. Choose such type of students, so that they are happy to help you in your studies. Allot some days in a week, say 4-5 days, and go to their houses for studying various subjects, which you are not able to study alone. Always make sure that you are not disturbing their studies. If you are unable to find such dedicated students who can help in your studies, then you can contact ad approach your teachers seeking tuition for the particular subject. If you can depend on guides or text books, then it is the better way to study without disturbing others.
While you are studying with your guides or text books, roughly read through a topic 2-3 times and on the fourth time try to understand it by visualizing it`s meaning in your mind. For example, if you are studying about the working of machines, then imagine a machine in your mind and visualize the working of it according to what given in your book. In every such topics you can apply this method to easily understand and memorize it.
But in some cases you may not be able to visualize and imagine things according to what the guide or textbooks defines, i such cases you can make some cooked up stories which can match your topic and visualize it in your mind. For example, if your topic is about Indian history, we got independence in the year 1947. There may be so many years to study in history, to memorize all may be impossible and time consuming. For the easy way you can follow this method, imagine in your mind that 19 soldiers fought for India for 47 days and gained the freedom, so came the year 1947. By this method you can imagine your topics which you think hard to memorize it.
By doing this easy 5 steps you will be able to study your topics within short span of time. I can guarantee you that, if you strictly follow these steps for least a month or more before your final exams, then you can pass in every subject that you felt to be failed. These was my five tricks that I used in my board exams to gain the honor to be a rank holder. Just try these 5 simple steps and feel the magical powers in them. Best of luck for your final exams.
