Choose the time and place of study. If you don’t know when you are going to do your coursework writing and whether there will be enough space for it, you become stressed and show poor results during the test. If you prefer crowded places, you can go for a café or a coffee shop. If you tend to be distracted by noise and don’t want people around you, try the campus rest room or the library. This place should be yours and yours alone, not in the terms of property, but effective learning.
Start with the most difficult material and as the tensions rise, go for a simpler, more familiar topic. You can choose to work in the morning and cover all the complex parts before noon or create a nocturnal routine if you are more of an owl. It’s important to prioritize and have all the tasks and materials in front of you, be it on flashcards or large sheets of paper.
Set your perfect groove. Are you a fan of outdoor learning or do you prefer to study with friends? You can choose your own routine, alternating between social activities and the preparation work. No matter what you pick, you can still be successful as you divide material into parts with deadlines. The most crucial thing about the mood and the setting is that you have to comfortable and honest with yourself, finding ways to reveal the potential.
There is nothing more satisfying than knowing what your teacher is going to say before he even opens his mouth. Study the material beforehand so you feel confident in front of the classroom and be ready for unexpected questions if it’s a test. Bring your notebook and lectures to check on them during the breaks and add ideas as the teacher speaks on.
Be active. Get involved in round table talks, participate in heated discussions… Commitment will be obvious once start. Ask questions that can provoke deep, meaningful conversations and listen carefully to what your tutor says. Sooner or later you will be forced to take part in the talk. If you struggle with a course that is too hard, approach your instructor to get some assistance. If he can’t help, ask of any study groups that are available in college where you can get professional support and learn material together. If you don’t want to cram for finals, follow this routine and you will see that it’s quite easy to get an ‘A’ once you are determined. To conclude, we would suggest you get some support from your family and friends. Tell them you have an important examination and make them test you, or fake test you if you wish. Do not believe people that say this may be a distraction. Your friends may also have some useful tips to share.
