    How many hours daily a student of class 11 or 12 should devote in studies?

    Given the existing syllabus and the competitive environment around, a student of class 11 or 12 has to spend a substantial time in the studies. Of course, depending on the grasping power and intelligence, these hours may differ from individual to individual.
    In my view, a student in class 11 or 12 has to devote at least 4 to 5 hours daily to their studies so that he can get a good result in the examination.
    What is your view on this? Is 4 to 5 hours is sufficient for getting a reasonable score in the examination or number of hours is not related to the examination results? Please share your opinion about this.

    The number of hours per day required for a student of 11th or 12th class for studies depends on the individual and the extent of concentration the student is having on studies is also important. A student will spend almost 6 to 7 hours in school and another 5 hours for studies may be OK. But the student should start studying from the start of the academic year and there should not be any backlogs.
    When I was in my 10th class, I was getting up early in the morning and studying for at least 3 hours and then going to school. School timings were from 9.30 AM to 5.00 PM. Then I used to go to tuition for 3 hours. I used to come back at 10 PM and then sleep. That means in addition to school I was spending about 6 hours in studies.
    My sister used to study only for 4 hours after school hours. My brother was spending also 4 hours only. My sister got less score than me but my brother got a higher score than me. My sister is one year senior to me and my brother is 4 years junior to me. After my tenth class, I secured a merit scholarship but my brother could not.

    It is difficult to suggest any student with respect to timing of his studies since it would vary from student to student. Normally the students need to attend their classes for at least for six hours but there is a break in between indicating that their stay in the schools might be beyond eight hours. Hence the maximum time for their studies at home will not exceed more than five hours considering their activities such as breakfast, lunch, dinner and finally retirement to bed for their refreshments.
    Revision of subjects on daily basis for the entire course could be difficult to be done within the available time after attending their schools. Hence they can utilise Saturdays and Sundays to the maximum extent of revision of subjects which they treat difficult needing more times to score well in such papers. Timing would depend upon understanding of different subjects and it could be variable from student to student.

    It is correct to say it is difficult to suggest time for study to any students at any levels. If parents or others stressing the students to concentrate in studies always leads to restlessness in mind and in turn there are chances of hating the study itself or creating meaningless angry on the teller. Most of the students at any level are paying their times to studies and when the parents or others in the house seeing the students paying less time for their studies they can encourage them with words or motivate them with some tea or coffee and this is never become a pampering as many told telling the children in soft way is equal to pampering. When we were studying for high school examinations and college degree examinations, our mother and aunt (father's brother wife) prepare tea for us and induct us our studying.

    The effectiveness of studying shouldn't be solely measured by the number of hours spent. It's important to focus on quality and attentiveness rather than just the quantity of time invested. Simply sitting for long hours without active engagement or productivity can be counterproductive.
    Research suggests that the brain's ability to concentrate and retain information gradually decreases over extended periods of intense focus. Taking regular breaks during study sessions can help improve concentration and prevent mental fatigue. Additionally, adopting a structured and organized approach to studying, such as setting specific goals, prioritizing tasks, and utilizing effective study techniques, can enhance learning outcomes.
    While the optimal study duration varies for each individual, it is generally recommended to aim for shorter, more focused study sessions rather than long periods of unproductive studying. By maintaining a balance between study and rest, you can enhance your learning and improve your overall productivity. Remember, it's not about the hours you spend, but rather the quality of your study habits and the active effort you put into understanding and retaining the material.

    Yes, it is true that it would vary from student to student depending upon their intelligence and grasp of the various subjects. Some children are extra ordinary intelligent and get good scores with less hours of study.

    When it comes to studies in classes 11 and 12, it's important to find a balance between learning and taking care of health. While the number of hours students dedicate to studying may vary depending on their individual needs and goals, a general guideline is to aim for around 6-8 hours of focused study each day.

    Remember, it's not just about the number of hours they put in, but also the quality of study time. Make sure to create a conducive environment, minimize distractions, and maintain a consistent study schedule. Taking breaks, staying physically active, and getting enough sleep are equally important for their overall well-being and learning capacity.

    Honesty is the best policy.
