Studying is a skill in itself. You can learn how to study effectively. It is not just about knowing ‘what you learn’ but also about ‘how you learn’ that could give you the edge when studying for exams. This is especially true for people who are holding down a full-time job during the day while studying at night as much as it is for those in full-time education.
There are a number of tips and tricks that can help with developing your study skills. Time management is a major aspect of this. The ideal way to maximize your study time is to do it in 30-minute blocks of study and take a quick five-minute break to refresh your brain, then go back and study again for another 30 minutes and repeat.
Other tips for effective study include organizing a dedicated study space, using past exam papers to study more productively, maintaining a healthy diet and getting enough sleep.
