In this blog, I share with you a few study and examination guidelines that I have penned during ‘motivating moments’! Happy reading 😉
1) Breathing before a study session prevents sighing post it…
So let’s take a deep breath and plunge!
2) Get enough sleep. It awakens you…
Helps one tackle the stress too. PS, I’m working on this!
3) Taking notes helps taking note…
Writing helps us discover and appreciate the sub-theories we take for granted.
4) Expressing impressions makes for impressive expressions…
A step ahead of taking notes, discussing concepts and answers with friends or family.. Or our dogs (!) helps us master the art of articulating ideas.
5) While answering a question, question the answer….
An examination answer shouldn’t look lopsided; opinions should be critically analyzed – Of course, the scope for the same varies from subject to subject.
6) Deduce, don’t reduce.
For numerical answers in particular, as we connect dots and derive equations, we must make sure we list all the steps that led us to it – We shouldn’t compress or reduce the workings..
7) Don’t count time… Count on time
Rather than putting it like this: “6 weeks to go for examinations”, try this “We have 6 weeks at hand; let’s make the best use of it.”
8) Stir without noise..
Noise refers to the irrelevant information which we have to filter out during the course of our study, while we stir and completely absorb the rest.
9) Fulfill duties, not prophecies..
Nervousness is often a self-fulfilling prophecy because it makes one go wrong. Instead, the focus should be on fulfilling our duties towards ourselves, if not towards those who believe in us.
10) Study tips don’t have to work on you; you have to work on them..
This isn’t a disclaimer for the above, but it is what ought to be done!
Of course, these are reflections of an ‘ideal me’, which I aspire to be. But getting as close as possible to one’s ideal self does the trick for the most part. Good luck with being or finding yourselves!
