How to Study at Home Efficiently

Exam season has arrived, which means days spent inside studying. It can be difficult for even the best student to focus. So, aside from getting help from an essay writing service, here’s how to study at home efficiently.

Make a Timetable
Having a revision plan will enable students to identify all the topics they need to cover and how to organise their time to ensure nothing is missed. Create a timetable which breaks the day up into study sessions, with plenty of short breaks, to keep on track. Knowing exactly what is required will help even the most easily distracted student to stay focused.

Know Your Learning Type
Everyone learns differently. Some people rely on visual aids, such as posters and diagrams, to help them learn and others prefer to learn practically by actually completing a task. Many people prefer to listen to videos or someone explaining a topic to them. Sometimes background music can help, sometimes it can be distracting. Finding the most effective way of learning for you will make you more productive.

Teach Others
Being able to teach someone else about a topic of study is a good indicator that you understand it. It is an efficient way to learn as sharing knowledge helps others and in return they can teach you. This is a good way to break up a long day of studying and engage with a more interesting method of learning.

Take Breaks
Regular breaks make studying more efficient. Staring at a textbook for extended periods of time is not a productive use of time and information will stop being absorbed very quickly. It is better to work in small sections; taking five minute breaks every half an hour or so. It is also important to schedule in some time to do something enjoyable as this will motivate you whilst studying. Exercise is known to improve brain activity so take time out of your day to do thirty minutes of physical activity.

Switch Off Your Phone
Mobile phones and computers are one of the biggest distractions when studying at home. It is easy to get carried away scrolling through social media. The best way to avoid temptation is to remove it. So turn off your phone or put it in another room. Use it during breaks as a reward for working hard.

Practising real-life examples of past exam papers or exam-style questions will make you far more confident in the exam. It is not productive to simply study a topic if you are not able to apply it practically when asked a question in the exam. Try to avoid looking at the marking guide until the end to give yourself realistic idea of what you know and what you need to go over.

Ask For Help
Finally, don’t be afraid to ask for help. There will be plenty of people available to help you during your studies. It is better to ask and receive than go into the exam not knowing a vital piece of information.
