Top tips for your best study session yet.

Your thoughts (38)

You probably love learning new things and going to school, but find studying for exams a bit more challenging. You also know waiting until the very last minute is only going to make it worse. Why not try these study tips to help you focus?

Set up a regular time and place to study. Maybe it’s at the kitchen table every evening or at your friend’s place for an hour after school. Your study sessions will be easier to stick to or turn into a habit when you have a regular time and place for them.

Break down big tasks into smaller pieces whether you’re studying for a big test or working on a project.

Set yourself small daily goals. Finishing smaller goals will give you a sense of accomplishment and encourage you to keep going.

Take breaks. It’s good to set yourself time limits when studying. It’s recommended that you take a 10-minute break every 45 minutes to an hour. Leave your books and go outside for a few minutes, talk to your siblings or make some tea with your mom. Keep your break short or you’ll lose your motivation.

Find your study method. Some people find rewriting their notes is the best way to learn, others like to talk through their work and some people learn best with others. Try out different ways of studying and go for the one that helps you. Sometimes you might even find you need different study methods for different subjects. With a little bit of focus, you can ace your exams.

Good luck Springsters!

Hey Springster. Glad we could help!

I really found it hard to study. I only study the day before and I'm used to it, which sometimes isn't a good thing. I always keep telling myself I'll study coz I still have time then boom the exam day is tomorrow, I start cramming

Hi Springster. The best thing to do now is to create a study timetable which you intend on sticking too. You'll need to 1) Divide however long you have until your exams by how many subjects you study e.g. Maths, Science, English 2) Then for each, divide all the topics and areas you need to cover accordingly 3) Keep it very simple or add extra fields, such as to note specific things you want to achieve in a session. You can also use cards for short info revision, pictures for memory and study with a friend so you can quiz each other. Give yourself enough time to cover all your subjects and be consistent. I know its easy to become distracted but this is the final quarter of the year so hang in there. Good luck

Girls should face their education first. before thinking of having a boyfriend. Because some are foolsh all they want is sex

Hi Springster. It's good to focus on your education and achieving your goals. Time management is important and it is possible to maintain relationships and juggle school work. Choice is also important and if girls are emotionally and mentally prepared to move their relationship to the next level that's also okay.

how do I set a timetable for my own study sessions

Hi Mabooklay_2001. Thanks for your comment. If you wanna avoid that same scenario on the future perhaps you should ask for the syllabus for the year so you can pre plan.

Hi there springster.......is it possible to study in a study and do you study in a study group

Sorry I wrote that in a hurry but is it possible to study in a study group and how do you study in a study group with other friends cuz I'm used to studying alone

Hi Springster! You can study in a group is you feel like it will help you do better. Just make sure that the people that you're studying with are committed to studying, doing well and aren't a distraction. How you and your group go about it is totally up to you - you can have the person who's best at a certain subject lead the study for that subject or you can work through activities together. Keep trying different ways of studying and you'll find what works for you. All the best with the studying Springster!

I refer studying alone because I think its the best way to learn things by yourself then relying on other people
