3 study tips that will prepare you for your next test

Tuitions

Exams and tests should be one of the focus of high school students. However, with increasing difficulty of getting into college students are under more and more pressure to be the best, get the best grades and excel in all subjects at school. The aim of this article is to help guide you and give you a few tips on how to study effectively.

  1. Know what you need to achieve. Find out the specifics of the test. Know every detail you need to know and only study that. Sometimes teachers make test preparation hints quite vague therefore try asking them specific questions about the test so that you can narrow some topics down. In case of SAT’s you will always know the topic that you need to learn. Go online, research previous SAT’s that are available, look at the requirements and memorize it all if you have to!
  2. Don’t be afraid to get help. Studying works much better if you have someone to discuss the topics with. Also, studies have shown that you learn better when you teach other people. My advice is to get together with other students (2-3 is plenty) and have group study sessions weekly. Another way to do this it to get a tutor. My math tutor really helped me get out of my comfort zone to discuss the math problems and really understand them, I was the best in class after that.
  3. Don’t overdo it. Wake up, get ready and go to study fresh and early in the morning. Do not stay late as it will just drain you so much that you will not want to do this the next day. Make it seem to yourself as studying is easy. Do intensive, hard-working study days and the go home to relax and get ready to do it again the next day!
