How to crack any exam? Here are 7 secret tips to follow
1. Decide: Night Owl or Early Bird
People often say “Wake Up Early Morning and Study”, however it is not valid for every student. Every individual has their own peak learning time and one must find out that. Peak Learning Time is that time of the day when the learning power is highest. If you prefer studying at night then find your favourable time slot or else if you think studying early morning is your cup of tea then go ahead. So Decide who are you?
Make your study plan chart by prioritizing your lessons according to the difficulty level. Those lessons who need higher attention due to higher difficulty level should be prioritized first over those which are relatively easier to grasp and practice. Prioritizing clears up your mind and enables you to focus on 1 lesson at a time thus increasing the chances of early success.
3. Use the Pomodoro Technique
Studying continuously for hours is not an easy play for everyone. Your mind needs to relax and regain energy to study with enthusiasm. Pomodoro is an effective technique to increase concentration.
How to use: Study for 25 mins. Without any distraction continuously and then take 5 minutes break. Repeat this 4 times. For the fifth time, study for 25 mins, and then take a long break for up to 30 mins.
This technique increases productivity and helps you to achieve a balance between quality and quantity.
4. Eat Healthy for Healthy Mind
