Since I’m a medical student and quintessentially a geek,it is but appropriate that my first post be something related to studying!
Every person has a different capacity and different preferences of studying.
There is no magic trick or formula to ace that test.There’s just hard work and a smart approach.These are a few basic things that need to be done:
1.MAKE A PLAN😎
To achieve anything, you need an aim-a goal to work towards.So make a plan-a long-term one, and then break it down into monthly,weekly and daily.
The plan must be realistic.
Because making sky-high plans is inevitably satisfying but it’s a waste of time.
2.THE ‘DESIRE’ TO STUDY SHOULD COME FROM WITHIN 🦄
People will be behind you relentlessly – teachers,parents,tutors-but in the end, you should yourself have that interest. So find it within you -the need to study,the wish and will to study- I know this sounds like shitty philosophy – but it’s true.
Again this might sound preachy,but it works.
Eat right – eat fresh fruits and cut down on oily food,rice,etc.-coz these can make you feel sluggish and sleepy.
Do not follow some crazy diet-coz your brain needs sugar to function. And dieting and all is important in its own stead-but well,get your priorities straight!!
Drink lots of water-it’ll keep you fresh.
Don’t get too caffeine dependent – it might mess with your sleep cycle and give you headaches.
I don’t mean study all the damn time. I mean stay connected with your books. Atleast get to know what’s going on in class,what all has been taught and how much do you need to cover up.Don’t alienate the subject.
5.FIGURE YOURSELF OUT🙈
This is probably the most important one. It’s all up to you. You do you! You know yourself best.So try and understand your studying pattern.How much time do you need for a particular amount of matter-say,number of pages,a chapter,whatever.How many times do you need to read something to understand it properly? Does writing and making notes help?Do you refer to the notes you take in class?!
And needless to say-turn off your WI-FI and put your phone away!!🔥🔥
