Do you feel sleepy, giddiness, or bored while you study? No matter what you study, you might be studying for the UPSC civil service examination or you might be studying for MBBS or you might be studying for LLB or you might be studying for SSLC or you might be studying for the 1st standard term examination, you will feel the same when you study for longer. Some students who study for long hours day and night may not be able to make up for the examination but people who study for a few hours are able to make up the examination in the very first attempt. Have you ever thought how some people could study for longer hours and even though some people could study for longer hours could not be able to make up for the exam? it’s just because we need smarter study rather than harder and longer study. Let us look into How to Study Smarter; Rather than Longer.
Know the syllabus
This is one of the major mistakes that people who study for harder and could not make and the mistake which the successful people avoid. Some students or mentors or spectators of the examination may say that these exams demand each and everything under the sky but there are no such exams which require the student to study and reproduce all the things under the sky. Every exam has got a definite syllabus and every student or aspirant needs to capture the information and knowledge only under the ambit of that syllabus. If you know the syllabus and you can cover the syllabus before the exam you have completed 60% of the smarter study for your examination.
This is another important aspect of smarter study. Even if you know the syllabus, you don’t know what to avoid. You will end up relying on each and every resource you are provided with. The 21st century is equipped with providing you with the largest number of resources. The resources may be large in number but the time will be limited. If you rely on each and every resource by killing all your time, you will end up in nothing. Knowing what to avoid and what to adapt is the golden rule regarding smarter study. Select a good mentor and resource provider so that you don’t have to look back. More resources less study should be replaced by less resources but maximum utilisation. That will make you closer towards success.
Previous Year Question Understanding
Its important to know how the question will be asked. Some people might have studied each and everything but they are unaware or confused about the question. Understanding the question is the primary requirement at the exam hall. The secondary requirement is to know the answer. Even if you know the answer but don’t know the question clearly it is of no use. How the question will be asked and how the pattern of the question is to be calculated early and your mind should be ready for that. checking the previous year question paper set for the past few years will equip your mind to get adapted and familiarised with the pattern of the question. Not only that it will give you a clear idea about the most favourite question pool area of the examination or the frequently asked concept or idea. Even if the exam may not ask the same question but it may ask different questions from the same area. Understanding the favourite area of the examiner will make you closer to success.
Practising Mock Test
Most of the st8udent commit this mistake and they spend their whole preparation just studying things. Even if they are provided with a new information or idea just before the examination, they will spend the cool of time or register number writing time in studying that. what is more important in smartly preparing for an exam, is to make your mind and body adapted to the requirement of the exam. Some exams require the speed of the candidate and some exams require the analytical skill of the candidate. These are like studying mathematics. Even if you know the concept won’t do you any good. You need to practice it regularly to keep in track. That’s why competitive exam mentors and guides provide their students with plenty of mock tests to attempt. Practice with as many mock tests as you can. It is the most efficient and smart way of studying and a shortcut to success.
Believing in Yourself
This is the last but not least rule for smarter study. Even if you know each and everything above it, and you have adapted each and everything as per the prescribed manner, not believing in you will result like pouring water in an inverted pot. Believing in yourself will curb the anxiety of the examination and give confidence to appear for the examination. If the tension and anxiety is much more aggravated, you might lose all the skills and training you have acquired through your smart exam study. Curb the exam tension away and make the exam tense. Success will follow you.
