There are quite intelligent people who hardly need to study, as well as others for whom it seems that studying is not their thing. But the normal thing is to have an average intelligence and the good results are obtained with an adequate motivation that facilitates the effort that implies to study.
Think about the reasons you have to study. The more valuable, the better. Without the will to study, there is nothing to do. and the reasons you have to study are decisive.
2. I have no will
It is something that happens to many people and it has to do with the changes that occur in adolescence. There are many other things that are more fun. But you are playing the future. in a few years, you decide what you will be the rest of your life.
There are students who have repeated a course with good grades. They have changed, they have a motive. Just as you have it to hear music, play sports, go with friends and friends. you must have it, to study. And that motive has to come out of you. Prizes and punishments can be effective, but in the long run, they are not decisive. If you have a will, but you have to exercise it
3. Study techniques
You may have heard of it or said it to yourself. This boy does not know how to study. There are ways to learn how to do it, many books, web pages, the help of a teacher, your parents. But deep down, everything is common sense. To study you learn by studying and you will see which the systems that go better are. If you want to learn something else, read on.
4. The most basic
You need a quiet study place, where everything is at hand, with a comfortable chair and enough light. And no music, no TV. Do not fool yourself, with music you cannot study you can draw, copy. But not memorize or concentrate. Do not get up every moment, persevere sitting at least 45 minutes. Then rest 5-10 ‘and continue.
And also a schedule it does not have to be rigid, it has to be flexible but normal in high school is that you spend between half an hour and an hour to do the homework and three-quarters or an hour to study. If between Monday and Friday you did not get 10-12 hours of study, the weekend must be recovered. And something else in test time. Leave, if you can, for the weekend the tasks that take you longer a drawing sheet, a work for a subject.
It’s a shame that you spend your time doing like you study when your head is too far away. Stop daydreaming. Take advantage of the time and then you can do many other activities.
5. In class and The notes
It’s silly to waste time in class. If you take advantage of that time, you will have much advanced. If for some reason, they leave you free time, study, advanced task.
The teacher may follow the book: in that case, he takes notes of what he says, of what he insists on. If you write notes, stay tuned and takes notes as much as you can, with common sense. Underline what he repeats, what he considers to be basic.
One way or another, then you’ll have to go over what you’ve written you do not have to clean it up – but make the subject clear so that you understand it, now and in a few months. If you missed class or have incomplete notes, ask a classmate.
In most of the subjects, you will have to study, memorize the contents of the lessons. Do not try to learn something that you do not understand; that’s why what I told you in the previous point is so important.
Each person has his own system to memorize the lessons read it aloud, review it several times and try to repeat it without looking at the text. the important thing is that you keep in mind that you do not know a subject if you are not able to Explain it. And it is very convenient that you study each day, explained in class. This way it will be easier for you because you have “fresh” in the memory and it is better to learn a short text than to face a lot of pages when the epochs of evaluations arrive.
7. The exams
It is said by the teachers that the course is approved in September. There are no excuses: I will study when the test is a huge mistake. If you study every day when the time comes for the exam you just have to review knowledge already acquired, remember what you already know. If you leave everything to the end, you will end up with a head full of formulas, definitions, dates, etc, chaos. If You have to prepare each one differently Self-examination gives good results.
Sleep well the night before the test, does not even think about taking a pill you will pay very dear. This will avoid nervousness and fatigue. It is also not good to comment with colleagues just before the test begins: you will only be able to convince yourself that you are not well prepared and you will become even more nervous.
Read the questions carefully before you start responding even make a small outline even mentally. If you can, answer the easiest questions first and leave those that you do not know to the end. This is especially important in problems of mathematics, physics, translations Many times you spend all the time you have to make a problem and leave the rest blank.
8. For science students Problems
Although it is difficult to give a common rule, in mathematics, physics, chemistry many tests include problems: from some data you have to find others, using a formula or several.
First, you have to choose the right formula, and then replace the variables with the values they give you Units and you will have one or several unknowns to clear. Do it with great care and review the calculations: it is very likely that you will be asked for the exact results, and it will not be enough for the solution to be well thought out.
9. In spite of everything, I do not get good results
Courage, everything has a solution in this life Think about what your failures are as a student, be constant, do not be discouraged. the results take a time to arrive, and failures serve to gain experience, not to regret
Ask for advice from someone with experience, do some tests of study techniques and improve your methods as a student.
You may have personal problems that keep you from concentrating. Accept it and seek a solution, though often not easy. Try to disconnect from it when you study. You play the future.
If you’re thinking about a girl all the time, I’m pretty sure that what she would like most is not to think so much and to study with profit, to offer something valuable, to be proud of you.
10. And most importantly
There is a Way point, which states that An hour of study is an hour of prayer this book has many points, an entire chapter, dedicated to the supernatural aspect of the study. You could use it very carefully.
