Why This Type Of Study Doesn't Equal Exam Success... by planetpgold(m): 1:18pm On Jun 20
Timothy Here Again,

Why do some students study less and get high marks while others study super hard for a longer time and get average grades?

It's because studying hard for a longer time, and then automatically getting good grades, is a myth.

Actually, there are 3 myths about studying that are not grounded in reality at all.

Myth #1. I need to stay up all night long, every night before my exams. In other words, I don’t need to sleep. Just study, study, study. Be a machine. The problem with this mindset is that it lacks an understanding of how valuable sleep is to the brain.

Sleep can help us learn, consolidate new memories, improve memory and recall, and give our brain time to get rid of unnecessary waste. Conversely, sleep deprivation can reduce your cognitive abilities, negatively impact concentration, and slow down the learning process.

Myth #2. I must sit at my desk and study all day, with no exception. This is very common among students who started exam preparation late. When it’s exam time, there’s nothing else to do except go through the books and videos, one by one. Treat my bedroom as a prison cell.

Only get up to go to the bathroom, have lunch and, or dinner. Worry a lot. Feel anxious and stressed. The problem with this mindset is that we expect so much from our brains. It must function perfectly, it must focus all the time. Or else, everything is over. Failure is imminent. Exams will have to be retaken.

Myth #3. I have to keep re-reading my textbook because that’s the only way I’ll learn. I don’t know about you, but when I was writing my own exams, they were boring and reading them seemed endless.

Instead of just skimming through the book many times, it’s a better idea to take notes to summarize what you’re reading. Personally, I consider note-taking to be one of the most powerful learning tools I’ve developed over the years.

It boosts my critical-thinking skills, helps me recall information faster, makes studying more productive, and allows the brain to focus on the most important sections of the study material.
