A general study plan always talks about the various tools and methodologies used to prepare well for any competitive examinations. There is an utmost need for having a study plan in case one is thinking of not only appearing in any examination but also yearning to be the best in the league. The examination is the yardstick to check on what one learned in the course of time, and that’s why the competition has been growing ever since. It is easy for you to be the best among all of the people appearing for a particular examination if you are fully prepared for that.
A study plan gives you the direction of how you can get to your aim and the rest is all up to you. There is nothing that can stop you if you are determined to achieve your aim. There can be different study plans based on the type of examination you are preparing for. So, the first step shows how a study plan can be created and what to include in the study plan. A general study plan should be created by jotting down some simple rules which must be followed. Now, let’s see, what these rules are or key points to be followed to get to your successful preparation. Firstly, the study plan should be decided based on the number of hours you can give to your self-study. Secondly, you should decide the place where you are going to study. That decision should be made wisely. The place should be the one where you have very less to no disturbance at all since it is vital as far as concentration is concerned. The place can be your small room where you don’t get to hear many noises. The third thing to be decided would be the time of the day when you can study. It can be in the morning or evening or even late night after meals. But early mornings are considered to be the best time when one can study. It’s the time when your brain is active and fresh. This is the time of the day when there are least noises, and fewer people are awake to disturb you. Once you have decided all these three things, the fourth step would be to decide and distribute the number of hours to the individual subjects. You can have more time for a subject which you think you need more improvement in and can give comparatively less time to the subjects which you believe you are good at. For example, if Mathematics seems to be a subject where you need more practice, while you perform better in Science, then in such case, you can give more time to your Mathematics than to Science. Next step involves, splitting your syllabus, and setting a timeline to finish the course. The final step involves, following the study plan with full dedication. Once you finish the course, spare some time for revisions, and you are all set for your examinations. Next day review material again for some minutes. One week later review this for more five minutes and month later you can review this for more five minutes. Suppose you want to remember information longer, then review this for 5 minutes after 2 months, and again after 6 months.
You can use smaller notebooks or the flashcards to study when on a bus and train. Take each opportunity you need to grab some minutes of the study time, like while doing the laundry, waiting in line, or sitting in the waiting room, and waiting for the class to begin. Take the study breaks, and you may easily wear yourself if you study a lot at once. You need to break the study sessions up in the equal times. Select subject and study at the time, as well as rotate them. Suppose you are struggling hard with any of the classes, then talk to the teachers. You can set up the session and go through the material on one and help you to understand this very clearly. So, these are some simple ways you can try out for effective study plan.
