Exam time is something that almost every student dreads. No matter how much you have prepared for your exams, there is always anxiety that builds up when the examination time is nearing. Many students put their heart and soul while preparing for their exams yet they do not attain the desired results. There can be some reasons behind this unexpected result. We have shed some light on some of them in this post. Have a look at them: Not having a Proper Plan The biggest of all mistakes that students make while preparing for exams is that they do not have a proper plan. They just start studying randomly from any chapter. The best advice is to prepare yourself for the preparation of exams. Count how many days are left for reviews and divide the syllabus accordingly. Do not overburden yourself with too much study material to cover in a single day. Furthermore, when distributing the program, start with a priority order rather than chronological order. Only Studying and Not Learning This is a common mistake that most of the students make who start preparing late for the exams. Since they do not have much time at their disposal, they end up only ‘studying’ the syllabus and not ‘learning’ it. Students need to know that going through a chapter once or twice before an exam will not remain in their memory. They need to devote ample time to review each section of their syllabus so that they can be fully prepared for their exams. Taking too much Stress Some students take too much stress when their exams approach. This stress often takes a toll on their health, and they usually end up falling sick. As a result, they aren’t able to get fully prepared for their exams and the results, for the obvious reasons, aren’t up to the mark. It is the responsibility of their parents/guardians and teachers to teach them ways to tackle this stress. Instead of instilling the fear of exams in the students, teachers and parents must encourage them to face them with confidence and do their best. Not having an Aim Having an aim is of utmost importance in almost every aspect of life. It is the responsibility of teachers and the parents/guardians of students to instil this habit in them. They must have an aim of the grade they want to achieve and study accordingly. This will give them a direction to follow, and they will be able to draft a proper guideline for exams preparation. Ignoring the Challenging Topics Most students are found guilty of this mistake. They often keep reviewing the lessons that they have already learned. Thus, they end up ignoring the challenging topics as such topics are challenging to comprehend and are time-consuming. There you go! These are some of the mistakes, which students make when they prepare for your exams. Identifying these mistakes and correcting them will enable them to get fully prepared and do their best in exams.
Many college-goers are found guilty of this standard issue – losing their focus in class. They attend their college regularly and do not miss a single class. However, when the assessment time comes, they find it difficult to prepare for it since they do not remember much of the lessons, which they were taught in class. The problem here lies in the loss of concentration and focus. It can significantly hamper their overall performance in college. Here are some of the ways for college students that can help them to keep their focus. Avoid being Sleep Deprived This is one of the major reason why college students are unable to keep their focus in class. Late night partying and fun sessions with their friends that often continue until the wee hours of the morning make them sleep deprived. The result is a clear loss of focus, attention, and concentration in class. The best advice here for the college students is to leave the parties and fun sessions with friends for weekends and try to go to sleep early so that you can wake up fresh the next day. This will help to keep your focus intact in class. Make Efforts to join the Discussions in Class Actively taking parts in discussions in class will not only sharpen your mind but will also enable to keep your focus and concentration. These discussions can prove to be a great way to enhance your knowledge. If no arguments are going on in the class, you can initiate one by asking a question to your lecturer related to the subject. Do not hesitate in Asking Questions Asking questions to the teacher is another way of keeping your focus. However, do not bombard them with a problem every minute in the class. This can become a cause of annoyance for other students. The best idea is to think of a good question that will not only help you but prove to be knowledgeable for other students as well. These small Q&A sessions in class can also help a great deal to revise the lessons being taught in the class. Avoid Distractions This one is the most obvious! Try your best to avoid distractions and listen carefully what your lecturer is teaching. Put your smartphones and tablets in silent mode and turn off the alerts. Do not make this mistake of checking your social media feeds during a lecture. It can prove to be a great distraction for you. Put your focus on taking detailed notes and comprehending what the lecturer is teaching. A Final Word To sum it up, it is safe to say taking a class without focus and concentration is of no use. By saying this, we do imply that you should stop attending your college if you are unable to keep your attention in class. The idea we are promoting is to find your focus and keep it intact with the help of useful ways discussed above.
This might sound utterly absurd and downright questionable as to how one can learn through movies. Movies have replaced books, as the devices, we hold on our hands promote us to invest more time in them than with a physical book. Films can significantly enhance our learning ability with both the visual appeal and the connectivity it causes. Below are some movies that hold great prestige for recreating historical events and help to learn difficult concepts more accessible. The Theory of Everything It features the history of the life of ‘Stephen Hawking’, the world-renowned physicist. The plot talks about his early life, i.e. before he developed sickness and after his physical inabilities had entirely restricted him. The movie is aspiring and motivating and more so because it is a wholly accurate story. The theories he developed in his physically limited condition now hold great importance. This movie has preserved his life significantly, more now as he has passed away. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas The boy in the striped pyjamas based on Hitler’s fascist regime against the Jewish people. It almost horrifically captures the effects of the tyrant regime on the society mainly from the perspectives of children. It features communication between a superior German child and a ‘filthy Jewish prisoner child’. The movie dramatically portrays the innocent sensitivity of the German child contradicting the brutal characteristics of his father. The Zookeeper’s Wife Also based on the Nazi regime, the zookeeper’s wife portrays an array of somewhat limited yet sufficiently horrific events. The movie is based on real, and the protagonist family had been rewarded with the honour of ‘The righteous among the nation’ by the state of Israel for their efforts to give protection to Jews. Fascism is a theory easier read than experienced; another fascist regime based movie includes Alone in Belin. Suffragette A particular confusion to this day poses for significant misconceptions about the theory of feminism. Suffragette features a series of events in the early 20th century of Britain with women struggling for fundamental rights to vote. The struggles portray majorly what is the right constituents for gaining rights and also that women had been discriminated in all aspects of life as well as around the world. The Help The Help is a reminder of the bitter truth of humans demeaning each other particularly a whole generation of people. This movie is an excellent representation in the visual form of how similar we all are to each other and how we present ourselves to be. An impactful and discriminating effect can be based on judgmental perspectives based on colour, skin, and race such that society can inflict cruelty on another community within the same living space. For someone who’s bored of books can resort to watching movies for several doses of historical, political, philosophical, psychological and literary knowledge that will both help you break down elaborate theories with ease and develop visual memory.
