How to plan your study during Exam..

There is no age limit for studying. A human being is always a student.

Sometime we study for our own experience or some time we gave exam to evaluate our knowledge.

Young or adults, all students give exam and learn step by step. But today students face lot of competition which leads to stress and peer pressure. But sometimes some students find their own way to remove stress and give healthy competition.

I will give you some tips here. For this, I will suggest 3 Ds for you.

  1. DECISION
  2. DETERMINATION
  3. DRAFTING (Planning)
  1. First step is to decide your aim. Decide which exam you want to appear and why you want to appear.
  2. Then determine factors related to the exam. Check your syllabus. Check if your exam has questions from reference books or general knowledge.
  3. Find out the approximate month and day your exam will be conducted and how many days are left for your exam. Accordingly you can planning your study time
  4. Decide on what study material has to purchase. Buy the one that will give enough knowledge on exam and help you learn faster. If you ignore a particular topic because you did not understand it you will not understand any other topic dependent on this topic .This will in turn lead to stress and study will consume more time. Hence make sure that you understand all concepts very well .
  5. Pen down your own notes in your own words. Then solve MCQs, objectives, questions (short/long) and estimate your understanding and how much extra work you have to put on this topic. Find out what topic you did not understand or read again the answers to your unsolved questions.
  6. Important part is make a time table to plan your study. Include everything that you have to do in a day(lunch ,dinner,travel and other activities). You must follow the time table 81% don’t postpone your today’s study to tomorrow or day after tomorrow. Soon it will start accumulating and you cause tension during exam time
  7. And most very important is your HEALTH. “Healthy mind dwells in healthy body”. You must take care of your health. When you study and giving exam you must eat healthy food and nutritious food like salad , soup, leafy vegetable etc. Avoid outdoor food and sleep for minimum of 6 hour in day. When you are healthy and fresh at the time of exam you will be able to perform your best.

Today buzz words are 3G and 4G . Technology is improving day by day. Use it when you study. We get lot of knowledge with just one click . The world has become technologically advanced and coming closer. It is no more necessary to go to a coaching center to give practice test. Today you can do it on Internet using apps like PREXAM. You can take tests at your convenient time and when you are prepared.

This is how you should plan your studies and follow it. So you don’t get stressed give exam with a healthy mind and with a smile.

How to Prepare for Exam

Preparing for an exam can be stressful and time consuming, but it doesn’t have to be. There’s no need to stress out or cram. By doing a couple simple things ahead of time, you can ensure that you are confident and ready for anything that comes up on the test.

There are lots of ways to study / prepare for examination. As it’s a 21st century there are lots of new techniques. As the generation changes the method of preparing for examination also changes.

1) Refer various books, study material, etc 

Start studying early In this you will first need to understand which topic or subject you’re going to prepare for. Purchase a book or a study material, you can also visit your nearest library.

Give yourself more than enough time to review the material that was covered in class. You might want to gauge how soon to start studying by how much material you need to review.

For instance, if you have to review material for an entire semester/ Government exams, you might want to start studying a few weeks prior.

Prexam preparation

Only you know how long it takes you to study, so you are the best judge of when to start studying and how to start studying.

If the class material is especially difficult for you. Start studying early. Give yourself enough time to truly grasp the material, practice it and then review it.

Get a full night’s sleep before the exam. Your brain needs time to subconsciously digest everything you’ve put into it, so start early so you don’t have to stay up all night.

Read through the entirety of your notes that will be on the exam. It will refresh your memory of the material and help you remember what you learned. It will also help to make you aware of all the information in your notes.

Get some good notes. Good notes can make all the difference when you’re studying.


Ask your teacher about the test material.
 One of the easiest ways to begin your studying process is to find out what is on the test directly from your teacher.

Practice : A Mantra

 

Marines with the Wounded Warrior Regiment line up to shoot during archery practice at the 2012 Marine Corps Trials at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Calif., Feb. 17. More than 300 injured Marines, veterans and allies, are competing in the second annual Trials, which includes swimming, wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball, track and field, archery, cycling and shooting. The top 50 performing Marines will earn the opportunity to compete in the Wounded Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, Colo., in May.

“Go & practice till you reach perfection” this was the only lesson Eklavya got from Dronacharya. He belonged to a backward clave, this made Dronacharya deny him lessons in archery. But Eklavya considered him as his Guru, made his statue & feeling the presence of his Guru he practised the art in the forest. After years of practice he turned out to be a perfect archer.

Once Dronacharya & few of his students were passing through the forest 3-4 dogs were accompanying, their bark disturbed Eklavya who was practising. The dogs moved forward from the group. After sometime the dogs returned, they had arrows stuck in their throat. There was no sign of violence or pain but their sound had ceased. They looked around for someone who might have done it but found no one. The shot was from distance. It was done only by tracing the sound.

Walking further they saw a man with a bow in his hand, they knew this was the arches they had been searching. Eklavya did not fail to recognize his Guru though his Guru did. After hearing from him what made him a good archer Guru was sure Eklavya was the best archer he had ever formed.

A woman runs on a trail silhouetted by a setting sun shrouded by fog.

Sherly had made up her mind to win Olympics when she was in school. She participated in competition & practised running. Her parents took it just as enthusiasm in childhood. But fate played its dirty trick on her, she fell ill & while recovering she realized her legs were lifeless. Her dreams to win Olympics were still alive.

After 2-3 operations & by using special type of footwear she would walk. She returned to school & continued with the studies. During the sports meet, her teacher was surprised to see her name in the list of participants. She tried to make her understand, where walking was difficult, running seemed impossible. But she was adamant. Her parents were called. They tried to explain her, but she pleaded in her innocent voice. They allowed her to participate. The race started but she could not complete. But on the 2nd day she completed.

She started practising & took part in many competitions. In 1956 she took part in Olympics & won gold medal. It was the victory over her disability.

In both the stories their dreams came true by practice. Practice made them perfect. They never gave up. There are dreams & hopes in our mind & they can be achieved only by practising.

 

Tratak : Concentration Boosting technique for students

 
 Best Meditation type for students

jyoti-tratak

Tratak is a type of yogic sadhana which helps a person to increase concentration, boost confidence and develop positive attitude towards life. This can be done by anyone and everyone. It removes bad thoughts and negativity from one’s mind and brings out positive vibes. It also improves eyesight and keeps you away from depression.

There are various types of Tratak Sadhanas. The one most suitable for students is Madhya Trataka in which we concentrate on flame of candle or lamp.  This has to be performed at sunrise or sunset in natural light.

Procedure for Madhya Tratak :

  1. Place a lighted candle or lamp (diya) on a table/chair such as the flame is at a straight line height with your eyes when you are seated on the floor.
  2. Take a blanket or mat. Place it on the floor and sit on it. Take a wet handkerchief and place it beside you.
  3. Make sure there is least disturbance of any other light or sound.
  4. Now concentrate on the flame. Slowly you are only able to see the flame and nothing around it.
  5. Try to keep your eyes open and concentrate until eyes start watering.
  6. Then close your eyes and imagine that you can still see the flame for minimum of 2-3 minutes.
  7. Chant “OM” or any other prayer your follow. Keep your eyes closed.
  8. Wipe your eyes with wet handkerchief. Then slowly open your eyes.
  9. Wash your eyes and you would feel completely fresh and charged
  10. Follow this 3-4 times a week. Following this regularly will bring in tremendous positive change in you.

I have followed this since my school days and this has really helped me a lot. If hope this would be beneficial to you too. Give it a try and let me know if it makes you feel different and positive. Feel free to comment/share/like this post.

Sharpen Your Skills

Untitled

A villager sees a wood-cutter working hard in a jungle trying to cut a huge tree with his axe. The villagers asks him “How long have you been doing this, you look really tired.”. Wood-cutter replies “It has been 5 hours I am working to cut this tree. This is really a tough job.”

“Why don’t you take a break and sharpen your axe” exclaims the villager. “No. No. I don’t have time to sharpen the axe.” The wood cutter says empathetically. “I am busy axing.” Time passes and it started getting dark. The wood cutter finally completes his job for the day and returns home to come again next day.

While he is returning home he thinks about what the villager had told him. He goes home and sharpens his axe for the next day even though he was very tired. The next day when he starts working on the tree, he finishes cutting it in little time and with very less effort than the day before.

stock-footage-cutting-tree-with-axe

Here the Axe symbolises your skill set and abilities. In our daily life we get so busy with work and studies that we can hardly recognize that we have to polish our abilities and skills to perform better. We are so busy with work that taking out time for other activities seem impossible or waste of time.

But as the story suggests, we should take out some time to learn new skills and techniques that would help us perform better at work and studies. We should spend time in learning new concentration techniques, memorization techniques, self-study techniques etc. which will help us study efficiently. We should not only learn them but also take out time in our daily routine to practice them. Practice meditation, yoga and/or exercise which will relieve our day-to-day stress and keep us motivated and energetic.  All this would improve the performance level of our mind and body and we would feel more accomplished. We would complete our work in less time and utilize remaining time for rejuvenation.

The Art of Memorization

 

MMMMMMMMMMMM

Human memories are associative. We always tend to remember an incident by its association to other incident. You can try this exercise, sit idle and close your eyes and let your thoughts flow for few minutes. Now stop the flow of thoughts and traverse back what you were thinking about one by one and think about how you jumped from one thought to the other. The reasons that cause jumping are the association.

Now that we know how it works, we have to practice and implement it for remembering what we read or study. Therefore now we have to learn to deliberately create associations. Here is an article that would help you start: http://www.wikihow.com/Memorize-a-List-Using-Numbers-and-Rhyming-Words

highlight

Another efficient way of memorization is using audio-visual techniques. We generally tend to remember movie scenes and songs easily than we can remember our formulae. We can use audio or visual techniques to the same. A Simple visual technique would be using colour pens to write a formula attractively such that we can remember it in the form of a picture or converting a definition into a rhythm to remember quickly.

The above given techniques have proved very efficient to those who use it. A good practice at associating day to day work, study and facts would certainly lead you to perfection in memorizing.  If this article helps you or if you have queries regarding the same feel free to comment and connect back.
