Does it seem that the tests are coming up like bamboo shoots after rain? One recent test came to another. Take control of it like playing a mouse-beating game – gradually 9 and 10 points will come to you. Following are some tips I use to do my homework, I hope they will be useful for you.
Create a study schedule.
Time management skill plays a key role in the revision process before your test. When the time is set, you will be less updated. You also won’t have to stay up until 3 in the morning on a Sunday night to cram. Plan your entire week before taking the exam to make the most of your time. Before I do my homework or do anything, I always have a schedule to guarantee not missing any tasks.
Determine what you have to study and calculate the amount of knowledge you need to study each day/week to complete. You can quickly calculate the learning time per page and calculate the total time required to study them all.
Study evenly throughout the week instead of an evening. Regularly rereading will transfer that information from short-term memory (the form of memory that disappears almost immediately) to long-term memory that you can use later. Ideally, take time to study a little each day.
Revision as soon as possible.
Once in control of the situation, you will never have to worry to catch up with what you have learned. Read the textbook assignments, do homework, and go to class regularly. From there, the process of self-study will become a lot easier.
Set aside a notebook and a booklet for each subject. Keep relevant documents handy for retrieving when needed a few months later. There are outlines available to grasp the basic content of the subject. Don’t forget to study daily, don’t let the water come to your feet to dance! For me, I have a small note which is used to be kept the important things when I do homework. Therefore, it helps me to do my homework effectively and efficiently.
Ask teachers what they want you to revise.
Remember that any small details of an exam can become a question!
Get enough sleep.
We have explained why you should sleep instead of changing your daily routine to wake up early to study because it will break your REM sleep cycle (Rapid Eye Movement). Make sure you get as close to 8 hours of sleep as possible. Your score will be grateful to you.
When I do my homework, I leave the hardest content right before bed. When I fall asleep, my brain will have hours to “absorb” knowledge. Simple content can be processed in the afternoon – difficult content should be “soaked” overnight for optimal memory.
Spend time for breakfast.
Many studies show that students who eat breakfast before the exam usually do better. However, you should only snack and eat healthy foods – it will not help if you are distracted by pieces of eggs, cold meat, or cheese in the belly. Eat fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products.
In fact, studies also show that the diet of the week before the test is also important! Students on a high-fat and high-carb diet performed worse than those who ate a lot of fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain cereals. A suitable diet helps to keep your body and mind healthy. Eating right will provide you with the nutrients you need, helping you retain your knowledge more effectively.
Avoid “water to the feet before jumping”.
Studying right before the exam day will only make things more difficult – you will be sleep-deprived, moody, and unable to function effectively. You should not review a large amount of knowledge in just one night; You cannot acquire this amount of information in one review. To be frank, you will only do worse.
Even if you find this illogical, believe science. Many studies show that people who stay up late to cram just average. If you want to achieve 5-6 points, do so. But if you want a higher score, you need to stay away from cramming.
Study right after waking up and before going to bed.
Your mind will be alert and clear in the morning. You may not think so (it’s simple!), But as soon as you wake up, your brain seems to have more room to receive knowledge. At night, the brain secretes chemicals to deepen knowledge into memory, so studying right before bed (and when waking up) is best. Once you know the way the brain works, you can take advantage of it!
A study shows that the closer the information is received at bedtime, the better the information will be kept. So, prepare for the exam right before bed! In addition, this study found that getting a good night’s rest also improved memory retention. Remember the cynical advice above? That’s the reason.
