Welcome to another post kinda proud of myself, didn’t think I’d be so active lol. Anyway, since I go to an ib school (gag) and am in my final year of myp (years 7-11) I have super important exams starting on the 9th of May 😭😭 and since I don’t want to study, I decided to write a post on studying lol, so this post will basically be some things I do to focus when (if) I do study 😩😩
Okayyyy so the first thing that I found that really helps me to focus and get in the ‘study zone’ is to go somewhere I don’t know anyone, somewhere without distractions and a location with free wifi. For me, it is usually a cafe but it could be a library, a quiet diner, or your bedroom although when I am at home I get distracted and never do anything but you have to find what works for you.
Get your study space organized! This is superrrrrrr dupperrrrrr important (in my opinion). Personally, I cant study with mess cause I will be more focused on the random items laying around than actually studying, so make sure your area is clean and you have all the things you need.
For me, while studying I like to write my notes on paper because this usually helps me remember and understand what I am learning. I like my notes to be super neat and colourful. I also use lots of visuals and drawings. I always highlight key terms because it helps me to remember the important information.
When writing notes use mnemonic devices to help you remember things. Now I personally do not do this but my friend does it and she’s reallyyyy smart so I’m gonna include it anyway. An example of a mnemonic device she told me for diseconomies of scale in business is ‘can bob leave danielle’ and I guess the fact that I remember it proves it works I don’t really know lol.
Lastly and for me the hardest thing to do but it is really helpful while revising is to practice on old exams. This helps prepare you for the type of questions that may be asked.
p.s don’t forget to give yourself breaks in between studying, it is important as it will increase your productivity and your ability to focus
I hope this helps you if you need it 🙂 (if you have exams coming up good luck your gonna do amazing 😉)
