Competitions are very vital for overall growth of students. They bring the best out of the students and push them to perform to the best of their capabilities. But in the current scenario, seeing the cruel competition students go through, they seem to be a burden. At present, competition in schools has reached unprecedented levels. Students in this scenario seem to carry a lot of pressure on their shoulders, to excel, especially in academics.
Through this article I will give you some effective study tips that will help you excel in academics and beat your peers. Below are a few key points:
1. Learn in multiple ways:
Don’t learn just from a single source, learn in multiple ways. Besides books, also learn from online courses, audio files, etc. Although books have their own significance and they can never be replaced, the immense power of other modes of learning must also be acknowledged. Animated online courses have emerged out to be very efficient tools of learning. The animation draws a distinct picture or the concept in the mind of the students and hence helps them retain maximum of what they learn. Similarly audio files helps pulls together your concentration and help you learn even on the move.
2. Learn through jingles and mnemonics:
Although using jingles and mnemonics for learning sounds quite childish, yet it is considered as one of the most effective techniques of learning, especially when one gets stuck with something. Long lists, unrelated words, awkward names, etc. are easy to learn with the help of jingles and mnemonics. Otherwise, someone often tends to forget information like that or disrupt the chronology.
3. Teach others:
Teaching others what you have learned is a good method of revision. Students often fail to revise honestly. They peek into books occasionally while revising. However, when you teach others you remember everything, make others understand the concept and therefore help yourself by revising honestly. It also helps in gaining popularity in school when students begin to consider you as a helpful person and a true friend.
4. Adhere to optimal self-discipline:
It’s important to comply with the best level of self-discipline when learning at home. Your learning will not be effective or efficient unless. Students often tend to watch T.V, play games, and do other entertaining activities between their learning periods and take frequent breaks. This not only slows down your learning speed but also decreases your learning efficiency. Because it is important to adhere to strict self-discipline.
5. Learn concepts with practical application:
Don’t just cover up, it’s better to understand the concept together with its practical application. It helps you to draw on your mind, associate concepts together with their practical use and thus retain what you learn to the maximum.
