Another school year is about to open and I bet you are excited to meet again new friends, or if you are an old student, your former classmates. In the midst of your excitement is a reality that you cannot deny, something like “tests.” You might be thinking of ways on how to improve your test results, let me help you on this matter. Consider the following study habits:
Take down notes no matter what. The idea of taking down notes is for you to follow the lessons well. You may borrow notes from your classmates but you will find it hard to grasp the topic since that is not something that you have created. Make your own.
Analyze the lessons. Memorization is not enough. You need comprehension so that you will be able to answer essay and analysis questions. Take time to read the lessons and pause to think.
Prepare yourself a quiz. You can allow someone to do this for you. For example, let your brother ask you questions coming from your notes. In this way, a lot of things about the lesson will register in your mind.
Do not just sit in class. Participation in class is so important. If you have any idea to share, share it. You will be given merit for this.
Study in advance. In this matter, time management plays a big role. Know the schedule of your quizzes and study in advance.
Rest well. Give yourself enough sleep so that your brain can function well.
