Good Study Habits You Should Try to Develop

For many years, Singapore’s education system has been one of the best around the world. Of course, this is all due to the government support, the teachers, and most especially the students. Additionally, many students earn success by having good study habits. Of course, developing and using efficient methods of studying can translate to more accomplishments in school.

Avoid cramming

Many students fall victim to the temptation of putting off their projects and assignments until the last days before the deadline. There are also those who study just a day before their exams saying that the pressure helps them focus better. Even so, it’s not really advisable to do this. You’ll only find yourself struggling to stay awake while studying or waking up feeling exhausted. 

Don’t do too much at one time

Studying too much at one time, even when you’re not exactly cramming, is also not an ideal study habit. When you do too much at once, you’ll end up tiring easily and your studying will not be as effective. So, try to space out your studies or at least take short breaks in between your study sessions. This will help keep your mind stay fresh and sharp.

Try to study daily

To some, studying every day may sound tiring and even intimidating. But this is not really the case if you plan it out well. Plus, this doesn’t really mean you have to study like there’s an exam coming every day. Sometimes reviewing your lessons for the day can be enough. When you study consistently, at the same time each day, it will be easier for you to retain information and keep you mentally prepared always. All the same, it is also good to take a day’s rest from studying too.

Find your own study place

There are people who choose to study in complete silence, while there are also others who like to study with some music in the background. Choosing a place to study where you are most comfortable can easily boost focus and productivity. Also, try to have another one or two back-up study places just in case you can’t go to your main one.

Remove distractions

In relation to choosing a good study place, you should also get rid of the things that might distract you. Avoid studying near the TV when it is on or going to a place that’s crowded. You should also try to keep your smartphone away from you if you don’t really need it. Because of social media, it is very easy to get tempted to check our phones every now and then. That is why it is important to keep your phone away and to refrain from using the internet if you can when you are studying.
