5 Tips To Better Retain What You Study As A Student by uniqueiasbpl(m): 7:47am On Jan 22
If you’re struggling to retain what you study in class, there’s good news: you don’t have to accept it as part of the inevitable struggle of being a student. While it’s true that certain attributes, like your memory, are simply innate and there’s nothing you can do about them, other factors influencing your ability to retain information can be controlled or changed. Here are 5 tips that will help you better retain what you study in class this semester by an institute, offering the best MPPSC coaching in MP.

Why do students have trouble retaining what they study?

Bad note-taking, lack of study time and poor test taking skills are among many reasons why students have trouble retaining what they study. Learning how to take better notes can help you comprehend course material. Here are some tips for taking quality notes that will make it easier for you to retain what you study.

1) Studying in short, frequent intervals

Psychologists and neuroscientists have proven that information is easier to remember if it’s spread out over several days, weeks, or months. In other words, it’s better for students to study for an hour at least three times per week than cramming for hours on end once a week.

2) Learning from the mistakes you make

As students, we all know that it’s much harder to remember what you read in textbooks or hear in class than it is to learn from your own mistakes. As you study, doesn’t just focus on what information might be useful right now; take an active interest in learning how things work. When you make mistakes, be sure to note exactly why they happened and how they can be avoided later on—you’ll find these tips come in handy when exam time rolls around.

3) Using visualization techniques

By actively trying to picture what you’re reading or hearing, your brain is more likely to retain important information, says an institute that offers the best MPPSC online course. Visualization can be particularly helpful in subjects like math and science, where there are lots of formulas and structures that repeat themselves. Additionally, it can help students (and anyone learning) differentiate between concepts they do understand and ones they don’t—helping students hone in on areas they need to spend more time on.

4) Understanding your learning style

Some people are auditory learners, others are visual, and some learn best by physically doing something. Understanding how you learn best helps tailor study techniques that work for you—making what you’re studying easier to remember in addition to helping you retain more information overall. It’s important not only to understand how you personally learn but also how your course material is being taught.

5) Taking breaks between studying

If you’re struggling with memory issues and want to be sure you retain everything that you’re studying, take regular breaks in between sessions, say an institute that offers the top MPPSC coaching in MP. Students who do so typically end up retaining more information than those who don’t. In other words, if you really want to remember what you studied for class later on, try taking some time off in between your study sessions.

In addition,
Have your course outline handy. This would help you go through a particular topic before the lecturer does where you'll get sketchy idea about the said topic, but after the class, your misconceptions and confusion would have been cleared.

Make your notes by yourself. In doing so, you have better chance to carry out your own research if need be.

Love your lecturer and the said course enough to ask questions if you're confused. Personally, if I do not understand a course, my senior colleagues will not rest at all lol. If it's a borrowed course, look for serious students in the said department to help you- They'd be glad to help.

As long as it relates to my education, I am not ashamed to ask even a 2yrs old questions.
