Got yourself in serious trouble of preparing for exams one night before? It seriously is when you get set to just revise the lessons you have already prepared and it looks like you haven’t even taken a look at them before. Some students get scared at such situation and that is the main cause of their nervousness which leads them to poor grades. There is a need to calm yourself down, pat your shoulders and say confidently that I have already done this, and I know how to handle such situation. There is nothing to do with a sharp memory because the fear of one night before exam is so strong that it directly stings your nerves and your brain starts getting signals that you are not prepared for the test. We are quoting here a few tips which are amazingly beneficial for students at every age. just take a moment in peace, go through them and before hiring any private tutor to help you, try to do it your own. Always remember one thing that you know your capabilities the best and it is only you who can practically involve all of your skills and strength to get good grades.
Start from stuffing your stomach with brain food; not over stuffing actually:
Brain food for examples, scrambled eggs, dark chocolate, nuts, cocoa puffs with some green tea, is always a good choice when you are going to start your study session. There are two main reasons of doing so. Firstly, healthy food makes your performance better and secondly, when you are sitting with satisfied stomach, your hunger temptation will not bother you. It is really hard to be successful at studies when you are hungry. Get yourself some light snack with coffee and avoid oily or cheesy food. Make sure to eat to satisfy your hunger, not to stuff your stomach so much that you start feeling sleepy.
Physical needs are a great hindrance:
Just like eating, you need so much other activities which your life and your healthy body demands. Make sure that you have done so good to your body that it does not cause any sort of trouble for you while studying. Take a shower and wear comfortable cloths, take some coffee and go for a refreshing 10-minute walk before starting study. It doesn’t sound so practical but believe us that it can make your learning quite better and effective. Major cause of doing all that is just making your body comfortable and you don’t need to get up for your needs meanwhile.
Have an organized table:
Yes! It is very important. We have observed so many students who feel it is total waste of time to arrange your table before studying, study with everything scattered around and most often, they end up with a frustrated mood. Arranged things makes your vision and mind peaceful and secondly, you will not waste your time searching g for what you need.
Arrange someone to ask questions from you:
It is the best way to study if you can request someone to ask questions from the chapter you have learnt. Answering questions is approved and authentic way from educational experts for those students who want good grades and are working really hard for that. When you are questioned about something, you are actually called to gather all information present in your mind about that specific topic. After getting that, you have to pick up most appropriate info and convert them in speech before answering. All of this function processes that information in your mind so it is recorded in your subconscious which is a store to keep some important files for a specific period. It is then easy to get to them when the same question or relevant one comes in paper.
Use timer for study sessions:
The biggest mistake students make when they are worried about exams is that they sit to study and continue studying for hours. This makes their mind dull and bored and its efficiency is strongly affected. Experts say that you must give time to your brain so that it can be calmed down and get ready to read and write again. Set a times beside you and after every 45 minutes, take a break of 5 minutes. It is best to leave your chair and walk around your house, take some refreshing juice or green tea, stay in your porch for a couple of minutes or simply chat to any of your sibling or your mom. This 5 minutes’ activity will totally refresh you and you will feel so energetic and determined to study again.
Have a sound sleep:
This is the most important step which you dare not to skip. Make sure that you take at least 6-8 hours to sleep before exams. Reading till late at night will make your exhausted physically and mentally and you will not feel yourself fit to attempt paper next morning. Have a good sleep and do not leave your home without eating a healthy breakfast when you are going to take exam.
