What are the GOOD study habits that students should have and adopt?
1.Plan and Create study timetable
It’s important to plan and create your own study timetable. By doing this, students clearly are aware of the revision hours and what are the regular routine for studying. In the meantime, this practice and habits can also help students become more self-disciplined and stay more focused in the long term.
2. Making Your Effective Notes
The benefits of effective notes is to reduce the revision time before the exam. Research shows that effective notes can help students reduce the revision hours by 20% and students can easily remember the information. What are the key points for making effective notes? Colour-code and highlight your notes. A lot of research has indicated that the brain tends to retain information much better when colours and pictures are being used. Therefore, it would be very useful for students to highlight the important keywords and concepts with different colours. However, do avoid highlighting too many sentences as these also create visual “clutter” which will make it difficult for students to focus on the important part in revision.
3. Be Consistent
Successful students start revision from day one. This is so called smart study! Consistent revision can help students grasp the topics and concepts in time and students are encourages to clarify the doubts with school teachers or home tutors whenever needed.
Never too late to cultivate the good habits as this is the key to score well in exam and become successful academically and even in adult lives including career and business. An experienced home tutor can also help the students in building the good study habits.
