Are you sick and tired of staying up at night before the exam day? Do you forget all the information you studied as soon as the exam starts? I’m going to share with you one of the most effective ways that I have used when I was a student.

  • Keep Focused and Make Connections

Try to keep up with the subject teacher in class. Listen carefully to what the teacher says and take notes of the most important details; taking notes helps you focus on the main point, leaving out the less important details.

Use colorful highlighters and pens, for that will make studying later from your book or notebook much more fun. Also, make connections in each lesson; try to remember lessons from events or things that happened during the lesson. For example, the teacher threw a specific joke in the history lesson, a student said something interesting in the math lesson, and so on. This will make connections in your brain that will help you easily remember the information in the lesson when you remember the joke or the event.

  • Spaced Repetition Method

When you take the lesson, your brain tells you that you know all the information you have taken during the lesson. However, you will start forgetting everything as soon as you leave school. By the end of the week, you will have forgotten most of the information kept in your short-term memory.

The easiest and best way is to move all of this information from your short-term memory to your long-term memory. Try to do it for a week and you will feel the difference.

When you come back home, try to read all the lessons and notes you have taken. This will activate your short-term memory and will help you review the information taken during the lesson.

Do the same thing the next day; read the same materials you took the previous day and on the day. For example, read the materials you had taken on Monday as well as the materials you took today, Tuesday.

By the end of the week, you will have read the materials you had taken on the first day five times.

On the weekend, read the materials of the whole week and repeat this step the next month.

When you prepare for the exam, you will be able to remember information as soon as you read it. The easy way to study before the exam, isn’t it?

Now you will be able to play the video games you like on the day of the exam while the others are hitting the books and have no time for any activities.
