Time spent in school is considered to be the most memorable era of your life. This statement only refers to the fun time you spent with your friends. Being a student, you are bound to face different hectic situations like learning your lesson, completing projects, and passing examinations in order to be promoted or simply survive. If you’ve passed that era, then you might be already at relief but if you’re still in that era, then you may ease out the studying process through the following the steps:
How to Improve Grades in High School | Middle School & College?
Find your comfort zone:
The best thing you could do to yourself is to find a place where you’re comfortable the most. For example, some of you might find library the best place to study while some may find it difficult. It depends upon the nature of each student as some prefer silence (library) while some prefer engaging loud combine studying. Whatever suits you, go for it.
One way of staying organized is assigning a color to each course. For instance, your favorite color might be red, and you could use that color to represent your favorite course like the English notebook. In addition, you may use the highlighter to keep track of important words, lines phrases that your teacher pinpoints and through these keywords, you may easily recall the entire lecture.
Want complete silence while studying? Think you’re too nice to stop someone from loud chattering? Don’t worry, try on your headphones, turn on the music and get a complete peace of mind. If we way, do opt for Beethoven and other classical music as it helps you reach inner peace, at least for some.
Note it down:
Laptops are replacing notebooks in terms of writing notes, however, using your hand to write down notes helps you remember them. This technique’s importance may vary from person to person as some students find writing more comfortable while some find listening extremely comfortable.
Automate Simple/Repetitive Tasks:
If you are just like me and spend most of the time with your laptop, in this case macro keys or any such keyboard macro program will really be handy to automate your simple task and increase your productivity level.
As mentioned above, writing down notes isn’t key suitable for everyone and some find listening as their true potential for learning. If this is your nature, then you may try recording the lectures which you could listen again at the time of revision. If listening is truly your potential then hearing the lecturing only once would bring back entire lecture in your memory. Truly blessed such people are!
Watch videos related to the lesson:
Exposing yourself to audio-vision media can help you become better at studying. If you find a math lesson hard and don’t understand how the formula works just by looking at the examples in your textbook, you can look up videos online that can show you exactly how they are used. This is also applicable to other lessons. All you have to do is look it up. Luckily, a lot of professors and students create videos like this to help people learn.
Use cloud storage:
The assignments we do that are in the form of PDF, Word or PowerPoint are of great importance and only the creator of the assignment knows the exact value of it and you are in no mood of losing them and what you can do is keep them safe in a cloud account. Most of the time, we use USB drives or USB storage devices to travel with our data (assignments, projects, etc.) but we forget the fact that the same USB drives are responsible for multiple cases of data losses. Without any notification, the students like you end up empty handed as USB devices usually get inserted into multiple public PCs and not all but some of them have viruses. Hence, your device has no other option but to get corrupted and you out of nowhere have to face the consequences of losing your data and recreating it again.
Take a break:
Studying is a major source of energy draining and continuous studying only makes you tired and even weak. After every 40-45 minutes, go for a walk, job or even grab a snack to refill all that is burned while studying.
Protect your docs using a security software:
Documents, presentations, and e-notes are way too precious and if lost, we won’t be able to study for our exams. To protect them, try using some security software(s) in order to safe.
Consider it as a game:
Combine study sessions are quite common among students but a majority of them aren’t progressive. The start of these sessions is solid but the end isn’t as when too many friends sit together, it’s hard to not have fun. But what you can do is split into two groups and compete against each other in answering questions, (similar to a game show style). The winning team gets free pizza and losing team sponsors it.
Apart from the above-mentioned points, You can talk with your teachers, participate in discussion and study with your friends to improve your skill and academic performance. It will also help you to get better grades in your exams.
