How to Revise Effectively

We all revise but the revision is not always effective and we end up forgetting things. It’s no point revising things if you can’t retain it during your exams and thereafter. Let’s look at some effective revision techniques: Image source: www.rnpedia.com

Take Notes

Do not depend on your mental ability so much! While you are revising, you may feel that you will remember the portion forever, but after an hour or a day, you realise that you won’t! So, it is very important to take notes of important points, so that you can easily go through them later. Image source: www.seraka.com

Do not Stress Yourself

While you are revising and setting targets, do not be stressed. The study portion to be revised may be huge, but you need to cover it bit by bit staying calm. Image source: www.thenew-renaissanceman.com

Take Breaks

Some students feel that taking breaks will give them less time to revise. But the fact is that breaks refresh you and then you get back to your revision with double enthusiasm. It is better to take short breaks than long breaks. Take deep breaths, listen to music, go for a walk, eat something or simply do what you like. Image source: Image source: www.wickentoys.co.uk

Identify your Best Hours

There is a certain time when our concentration level is at its peak and we can learn things quickly. Some people can concentrate better in the wee hours of the morning, while some prefer late night studies. So, just identify your optimal hours and study accordingly!

Practice Sample Papers and Previous Years Question Papers

Practicing sample papers and previous years’ question papers are an important part of revision. Sample papers give you an idea of how the questions are going to be framed and you can prepare accordingly. However, do not just depend on question papers; study your textbooks to secure better marks. Image source: www.sumitaipncs.in

Don’t Fall Prey to Distractions and Mood Swings

Distractions and mood swings are bound to happen when you start your studies. See to it that you don’t fall prey to temptations that may kill your precious time. Ditch your favourite shows or other activities for some time. Image source: www.youthkiawaaz.com

Drink water and Stay Away from Caffeine

It is very important to stay hydrated as it keeps you fresh and you can study for long without feeling sleepy. Coffee and tea can help you stay awake but it reduces your concentration span. Image source: chelseapediatricdentistry.com
