Study isn’t just for the night before an assignment’s due or the night before an exam. If you do find yourself cramming the night before perhaps it’s time to follow a new study routine, one that helps you manage your time and improve your concentration.
Plan a Revision Schedule
Organisation is the key when
studying. Creating (and sticking) to a timetable is important whether one day
you are quizzing yourself on different breeds, and the next you are revising
health and safety. Remember it’s all about quality, not quantity!
Struggling with remembering
certain breeds or techniques? Why not print off a picture of these breeds write
the names on the back, then, ask a family member or friend to quiz you. With
this technique, you’ll remember more and more in no time!
It’s important to take your mind
away from your studies every so often and centre yourself, did you know working
too long on a particular task can actually decrease your performance? Why not
follow the Pomodoro technique? For every twenty five-minutes that you study you
get a five-minute break!
Always ask for help if needed
If the stress of your studies is
becoming too much remember to speak with your family, or your friends. If you
don’t understand something then speak to your lecturer or teacher and ask for
clarification, don’t forget there are also your fellow students too!
Rewrite your notes
If your note-taking is anything
like mine then its covered in scribbles and doodles… so why not take the time
to rewrite your notes and go over everything that you covered in your lesson
once again. It’s a great refresh on the content that you have already covered.
There are hundreds of apps out
there for your phone designed to help students with all elements of study. Ask
your teacher, they might have some recommendations for you!
Studying too much, too late, will
not help with the final exam – relax, take it slow, and don’t leave it until
the last minute. This will help you feel calmer on approach to the final exam.
Whatever strategy you come up with, when you find something that works for you, put it into practise and go for it!
To all of our customers studying, good luck from the Groomers Team!
