No matter how hard I tried, my results seem stagnant!

Here, we share four tips that you can identify and adopt in your study routine!

1) Goal-Setting

2) Environment Tweaking

3) Identifying Style of Work

4) Clarification

1) Goal-Setting

- Always plan early by noting down important deadlines on a calendar, such as the next exam or submission. Set a timeline of the work you wish to cover through the weeks

- Prioritize the content that has already been taught by revising and working on it first. Given the time, you may work on other topics before your learning in school.

- Reward your progress. If you put in effort in the correct direction, persistence will pay off.

2) Environment Tweaking

- It doesn't matter if your table is messy or neat or your surroundings' ambiance is noisy or soft. Study in a place that you deem as distraction-free.

- Be it studying alone or with peers, empower each other. Share solutions to problems encountered during your learning process, as this speeds up the efficiency of grasping concepts for everyone.

3) Identifying Style of Work

- Are you a systematic person? Targeting the first topic/subject and mastering one before moving on to the next. 

- Are you a multi-tasker? Working on different topics/subjects at a time with no aim of mastering one before the other

- Do you have to follow a list? Compile what needs to be done in an "In" list and state what's completed in the" Out" list. This allows you to track what has been done easily! You may not necessarily be very detailed when filling the list; a direction can just be good enough.

These above styles of work are not exhaustive and can be overlapped with one another. Pick a style that suits you the most. If your current working style is on the list and is ineffective, choose an alternative, and you may find yourself more efficient.

4) Clarification

- Have your teacher or lecturer confused you? Knowing if you are in a state of confusion is important because you can plan what to clarify.

- Unsure how answers are derived? Take the initiative to learn the steps and concepts involved since many exam questions test on these.

- Have you encountered assuming that a topic will not be tested and it actually came out in exams?

         - Clarify with your teacher or lecturer, otherwise your school mates.

         - Alternatively, when practicing for exercise or tutorial questions, look out if such topic was brought up. If yes, include this in your revision.
