Ever wondered how that guy in your class consistently scores good marks but you seldom see him studying? Does that make you think that what you are doing wrong and they are doing right? It’s simple, really. Smart students do not have to study at ungodly hours to score good marks. They rather make most of the time that they are studying. How do they do that? Let’s find out in the space below.
Smart students do not study for a long stretch
This is straight out of a psychologist’s diary. You must not study(or do anything for that matter, except sleeping) hours at a stretch. It diminishes the productivity of the brain and you become slower. What smart students do is that they study in small pockets of time and take breaks in between. This helps them refresh their brains and they are able to grasp their studies quicker.
Smart students break up their syllabus
This is a very good trick to complete things quickly and in a way that is more effective. Smart students break up the things that they need to study into small chunks and spread them over the day or the week depending upon what they are studying. This keeps them on the track and they are able to complete it in a systematic manner.Smart students study alone
We understand that group-study sessions can be productive and insightful but you won’t find that guy we were talking about at the beginning in one of those sessions. Reason? Because group-study slows you down. You can be only as fast as the slowest member in the group and that is not something smart students like to do.
Smart students do not keep their studies pending
You may have noticed how most people study frantically just before exams. Well, smart students don’t. They complete their studies and assignments as soon as they are taught in the class. In that way, they are able to keep off all that exam heat.
Of course, the capacity of every brain is different and you may argue that our guy scores good marks just because he has a very sharp brain. While that may be partly true, you cannot underestimate the power of these techniques in saving time and headache related to studies. Try these for yourself and see the difference.
