Study Tips For Students

Here I will write about study methods.

1. Have a well-determined mind.
This is the first and the most important step. If student himself is motivated about a certain thing, he will struggle to achieve it.

2. Develop interest in subjects.

This is the next important step. Unless and until one is interested in subject, one can't progress.

3. Discussion

Discussion has a very important role in study. More you discuss, more you are likely to remember.
Discuss with your parents, friends and teachers.

4. How To Develop Interest In Subjects?

Initially read subjects which you like most. Later start reading other subjects which you like less.Slowly you will develop interest in those subjects also.

5. Study Timings

There is nothing like morning timings or evening hours are better. Study timings has to be decided by the student depending upon his choice. If he gets quite atmosphere in the night, that will be the best time for him in his house. If during evening hours, his family members keep TV on for 4-5 hours, that will not be the right time for him unless and until he is having a separate room for study.

6. How Many Hours To Study Per Day?

This again is variable depending upon homework and study load. Students from higher standards, 10th and 12th board, medical and engineering colleges will have to devote more time. Students who are studying in 8th standard and lower classes will have to devote less time. Slowly increase study timings.

7. How To Build Confidence?

Solve old question papers. Get checked from teachers. This will improve your confidence.

8. Group Study

Do group study. If you do not like to study in group, still you should sit in a group for 1-2 hours for the discussion.

9. Fear ( phobia) For A Particular Subject

Remove fear related to any particular subject like Maths.
Find out what you like. Many students go through this phase of confusion.

10. Memory Tips

Use pnemonics and mind maps to remember. Underline with color pencils. Use specific figures like stars etc to highlight important points.

11. How To Improve Concentration?

Do yoga, pranayam to improve concentration. Ideally one should have a separate room for study. Use mind relaxation techniques.

12. Diet And Health

Diet is very important to maintain good health during exam days. Never neglect diet.

13. How To Take Notes Effectively?

Read your course books properly and make your own personal notes. Use of more diagrams and codes while taking notes will save a lot of time.

14. Practice Makes A Man Perfect

Practice is the most important thing try solving sample papers /problem set.

15. School Activities

If your school is good, attend classes regularly. Ask questions in class everyday. This will help in clearing doubts.

16. Turn off your computer system and TV while studying. Relaxing music is allowed.

17. Set Goals

Life without goals is like journey without destination. So set goals. Remember that one can achieve almost everything with a strong determination. One should always remember Swami Vivekanand and his speeches.

18. How To Select A Coaching Class?

Discuss with senior students who have scored good marks in similar exams. Take their opinion about "A Coaching Class" . Just don't see the advertisements and join class. Compare the fee structure and see which teachers are available. Success of "A Coaching Class" is decided by teachers and students.

19. Avoid Stress

Stress is going to affect a student's performance during exams. Minimal amount of stress is acceptable. Don't take too much tension. Exams are a part of life. After passing exams also, one has to face so many challenges like getting a job with good salary, family life stress and so on. So avoid stress.
