never ever assume that what worked for one man will work for another

Find what works for you, you can try as many advises as you can get....eventually one will click and you stick to it. Some people do not understand when reading, do you go for your lectures and pay full attention? Maybe lectures are your thing

Maybe reading is not your best form of learning, try recording some of these things you read if you can and play it like music constantly and it may stick.

Find your style.

Change your source of drinking water, integrate quiet meditation to your schedule and then improve on the sleep functionality of your body to defragment your mind.

You should be better after this, but if you cant reboot your body for good sleep, just forcefully shut it down nightly and make sure you change your source of water supply.

U need concentration, also take your mind of things that are not important to you. If you think about women ,money and other frivolous things during studying ,desist from it. It might also be dementia

It's normal bro for people that thought you can use secondary reading strategies in University, no.
Just get yourself a jotter.
Get one serious reading partner.
Visit the library alone and read.
Do not go ambiguous, jot most important things in your own language and and the way you can understand.
I wouldn't say you shouldn't have gf or fun, no. Have your own timetable and follow it up strictly. Time to visit Ezinne should be in your spare time.
Mind you, you need free your mind and not to be scared or over too serious with studies, let it just flow. Go around with those jotters, you can easily review it anytime anywhere...with time it becomes part of you.
Start early to practice this and please pray to your God anyway you can.
Yes, it is God who gives retentive memory but then, research on brain foods and things or foods that degenerates the brain too. Watch what you eat or do. You know yourself more than I do.
A friend who is a chronic womaniser, smoker and self-services o... I didn't say person tell me. He came out 1st class. Which ever way he did it. He got 1st class bro. He's good with studies as a friend, I know.
And remember, all work and no play... You know the rest.
You'll make it bro. Just read and jot down important points.

it happen to me during my final year in uniport...you tend to read and within minutes they all evaporates from your memory...well mine was cause by too many distractions and fear that after graduation what next.....the main point here is to clear your mind from so many thinking....always find a cool, dark room to rest atleast an hour before you go to bed...stay alone and think of nothing during this time
another thing here is to give out time to what you think is vital for you....thanks

many things can cause this, ranging from anxiety, lack of concentration, or noise making friends around you.
solutions
1. don't read what u have more than ones at a time. When you continue reading something over and over again the seems not to make meaning.
2. when you bring your books to read and u don't have the urge or too tired don't bother forcing ya self, because u won't understanding nothing.
3. try sleeping well in the afternoon so u could read throughout the night, and when reading make sure you take ten minutes break every 30 minutes to meditate on what u have read. because your brain is more relaxed at night and so they are more active and easy to accumulate stuff
4. do away with noisy and partying animals as friends
good luck my dear.

Hello Melison. I understand your conundrum and have clues of where you might be going wrong.

I read one of your replies that you are studying Economics. I will like to let you know that I recently graduated with a first class degree in Economics, so you might want to listen to me or probably follow my instructions.

I am not an expert on education matters, however I have written numerous articles on education that could help you and some other people on this thread succeed.

Secondary education is distinct from tertiary education. Some of the methods you used in studying in secondary school might not help you in the university. You don't just study. There are ways you read and assimilate faster.

Are you comfortable with mathematics? If you are not, it is better you start learning to be comfortable with it because it is a necessary evil in Economics.

You might want to read some of these articles
1. HOW TO GET GOOD GRADES IN COLLEGE
2. SECRETS FIRST CLASS STUDENTS DON'T TELL ANYONE
3. HOW TO READ AND ASSIMILATE FASTER

If you have any questions, please quote me so I can get to answer you fast. Best of luck.....
first class in economics?

Probably it has been a long time you read and meditated. The comprehension skills have eroded away with time. You need consistent mental exercise (reading,thought provokers) for sometime to reconnect your learning skills. You will improve in no time

Sleep more, at least 5 hours a day. A good sleep I mean. If you think too much you might be deprived of good sleep.

Drink more water and take more protein. At worst, spare N250 every week for milk and tea. Buy four N50 powder peak milk with lipton (if you are not allergy to it, coffee is never a good option for reading purpose) in a tea cup. Use can take it two times a week or four times a week. It is was best to sleep after taking the tea.

Above all, take away and avoid distrations that may make you loss concetration. Work on your minds to be focus, read in a place where you can not easily be distracted and most importantly get a specific time and place to read everyday. You system will adjust and be ready to assimilate with time. Always start with subject you are most interested in first to buid your reading habits.

Tension I guess. And it could be psychological meaning the more you start noticing you don't understand things and thinking about it, the more you tend not to understand, it is a circle.

I believe you are studying with fear or pressure - fear of failure and pressure to make good grades.

These suggestions mighht help:

1. Learn to differential courses that are relevant to your course of study from irrelevant courses the university just add to make up credit loads. In other words, if you studying Medicine and you have to do biology and maths in year one. Focus more on the biology, read it to understand it. Try to enjoy it and see how it applies to Medicine. Then you can just read the maths to pass. This leads to the second point.

2. Learn to read to pass. All courses are important, whether they are relevant to your course of study or not. They add to make up your CGPA. So learn how to read to pass them, even if u don't enjoy them or understand them. This you can do by studying past exams questions on that course and doing all the assignments yourself. (Even if you copy, try to know what you re copying). Most uni lecturers don't have time to prepare new sets of questions every session. So they just recycle questions and change figures, names or numbers. Study as far back as 5-6 yrs past questions.

3. Lastly, get a roommate who's studying the same course as you are. Try to explain to him what you're reading. You guys should have interractive sessions. Also do the same to your classmates. Don't withhold knowledge. The more you teach others, the better you understand what you're teaching. Don't try to go solo, and don't also show yourself too much.

There's no hard and fast rule for success, but these worked for me. Maybe they might work for you too.


Wishing you success.

Re: Please Help I No Longer Understand Things If I Read by Nobody: 8:09am On Jan 15, 2018
Read the bible/Koran and try to understand what you read.
Read newspapers and be consistent in reading all the abovementioned.

Avoid social media whilst at it. It seems you have issues multi tasking. So learn to do a thing at a time.

Just pay attention to what works for you and when you don't understand in class, ask questions.

There is no harm in asking question. Always have this in mind it's better to ask questions, look foolish for a moment and learn than assume you know or afraid to ask and live under false assumptions.

Peace.
