Finding your study groove isn't always easy, but once you establish a plan you'll be well on your way to kicking all the goals. So, what exactly does a successful study regime look like? We've got a few ideas to help get you started.
1. Study when you feel like it
Studying is one of those things you know you need to do, but often don't feel like doing. And why would you when there are so many other fun things to do? Sure, you could consistently put in lots of effort to achieve your academic goals, but how do you know if it's even worthwhile? If you just allocate a bit of time here and there you'll get the same results anyway. Go out, have fun, study… later.
2. Settle in for the long haul
Most people will tell you that short study sessions with frequent breaks are the way to go, but come on, let's be realistic. What they really mean is cramming as much information into one long session would be a much more productive use of your time. This is particularly relevant around exams, because if you study too early you'll just forget everything anyway! Instead, try to squeeze in a massive revision session the night before, and if you're worried about time just don't eat or sleep!
3. Choose your environment
Choosing the right study environment is very important. Yes, you could seek out a quiet corner filled with light, but what if we told you it's better to set yourself up in the noisiest possible place, with little to no natural lighting? After all, how can you train yourself to focus if all you have to focus on is yourself?
With these tips in mind you're now ready prepare a study plan that works. At first it won't be easy, but I'm pretty sure you've got this.
And on that note, please—whatever you do—don't take any of this terrible advice. It's just another…
