Have you ever wondered what makes the class toppers different from the remaining students? Most of the students justify their weaknesses and their strengths by saying that they have God-gifted abilities of learning. No doubt that God has gifted special abilities to them but they are not the only ones who are blessed by God. Everyone in this world is blessed with unique abilities. All one should know is the way to utilise them efficiently.
Following are some of the most common habits of highly effective students. So, if you want to be like them and score high grades in exams, you will need to develop these habits in your life as well.
1. Compose Your Studying Schedule:
The first and foremost thing that you will need to develop is the studying schedule. Anything that you do without planning is less likely to get done appropriately resulting in waste of time and energy that you have put in it. Therefore, it is important to compose your study schedule. When it comes to composing study schedule, there are many ways to do it such as dividing your week according to the subjects or revising all subjects on daily basis –depending upon your ease of compliance with the schedule.
2. Study During The Specified Time:
One of the most common habits that have been found in class performers is that they stick to the specified time of studying and do not disturb it for anything be it going with friends, watching movie, family gatherings or any other thing. Therefore, it would be important for you to compromise on any other thing that requires the time that you have spared for your learning. Else, you would not be able to compete with the class toppers and all your efforts will be simply ruined.
3. Do Not Cover All Course At The Same Time:
As mentioned above, you need to compose a schedule of studying. However, you must make sure that you are not covering multiple subjects or your entire course at the same time. You may study multiple courses in one day but not all. Therefore, if you need to revise the course material of multiple subjects, make sure to have ample break between them. Else, there would be chances that the course content will be mixed up and you will merely be able to perform in one of them.
4. Set Your Daily Study Session Goal:
Another studying habit of the highly effective students is that they set a goal and achieve it during their study session. Therefore, you would also need to set study session goal analyzing your strengths and weaknesses and what you can achieve with them. You should neither overrate nor underrate your strengths while setting the goal. It is because if you will set something that is hard to achieve, you would likely to not set goal next time. Another important thing that makes the accomplishment of the study session goal is that it contributes to the overall academic goal. So, make sure to set a goal that justifies your strengths and skills of accomplishing it.
5. Prioritise Difficult Subjects:
Last but not the least is to prioritise the difficult subjects which means that you must start studying or covering the subjects that you think are most difficult ones. The reason behind it is that when you will start studying, you will have the fresh mind which will make you able to get hard exercises done and questions solved. Therefore, try to start with the subject that includes tough exercises and end with the ones that are piece of cake for you.
